Ivan Toney may not have won the hearts of Arsenal fans over the past week, but he left Gunners fans with no illusions about his quality today.
The Brentford forward went on the scoresheet as the Bees lost 2-0 to Wolves. He also added an assist, as he saw another effort ruled out by VAR.
Toney had commented on Arsenal midweek. In those comments, he suggested that he knew by playing them on opening day that the Bees would have chances in the game.
But, despite these comments, some Arsenal fans seem to have taken note of his performance today and are now calling on Mikel Arteta to act.
Granted, Toney would be a good signing for the Gunners. Pace, power and a proven league scoring record, the Brentford man could well be worth a punt.
And that’s the feeling some Arsenal fans had on Toney today, with Twitter full of comments asking the club to bring in the forward next summer.
Ivan Toney looks like that perfect attacker from Arteta imo. I have everything.

Arsenal must opt for Toney next season. It could be perfect for them.
