As a general opinion on here, say he leaves in the summer, how much do we all think he is worth? I think he is easily at least 40m

That is extremely conservative, imo. Call me crazy, but I would rather have him in our team compared to Kane or Lukaku. And they are three years older and are valued at 100m. I would keep him until 2023, where he has two years left on his deal, and I will be dissapointed by our DOFs if they take any less than 75m.

Yeah it was quite Conservative, but I was cautious about saying 60m, as I was going to, but not sure how that would have gone down. In that case, I reckon 65 plus

I don’t think Liverpool would need the defensive side to his game so might go for a different type of player. I could certainly see him at somewhere like Leicester. Let’s hope he stays with us and we provide him with more chances to turn into goals and get his England call up 😊 Although I honestly don’t think it’s far away
Liverpool press high and expect everyone to defend. He’d fit them well and would rarely be called upon to play as deep as he does for us.

I wish people would stop trying to sell our best players. We are in the Premiership now and don't need to!

Every club in the PL barring the top 4 is a selling club. We will be selling as we always have but hopefully not as quickly. And the aim is to have players who’ll be wanted by the top 4 for top money who we’ll have a replacement coming along for. A good season this year may mean we get an extra year of Toney as we can look to move up another level but if we do, he becomes a player who’ll get the £100k a week job for a CL club who can offer him the chance of a PL medal. But let’s enjoy them all while we can.

I know I'm not stupid! I just wish people wouldn't anticipate it with glee.

More likely, he will want to leave for a bigger club
What or who is a bigger club ? Everton - I can’t see that. Nor Aston Villa, Brighton, Southampton, Burnley, Palace, Wolves, Leeds. Hope he would not want to return to Newcastle. My point is that, at the really big clubs (the top 7 or 8) he would not be guaranteed a starting place. For Ivan starting is everything. I thin’ it would take a lot for him to leave, and I think the club would reward him as much as possible to stay. But we would probably also need to show him we were investing in the team to give him more chances.

There budgets are all bigger then ours and we are the smallest team in the league. Whether they can afford our asking price is a different question.

We may be the smallest team in the league but we still spent more than Watford, and spent it well, Norwich spent around 60m I believe and they didn't spend wisely. Even thought their budgets are bigger, we will spend ours more sustainably and maybe have more than them next year, if Toney, Raya and one or two others move on.

True, but nevertheless we will not want star players getting near to the end of their contracts, or heaven forbid going out of contract, therefore the requirement to sell at peak value will always be present.

It's Brentford fans' sport... any player who shows a decent bit of talent or has a really spectacular game or two must generate endless fan speculation about who will buy and how much, especially now we're in the Premier League (not Scotland).
