Wolverhampton Wanderers target Ivan Toney might just be the striker worth pursuing this summer, with his red-hot form showing no signs of cooling.

As Willian Jose still searches for his first goal, Toney simply cannot stop scoring for Brentford in the Championship.

He was on target once again at the weekend against Nottingham Forest, which was his 28th of the season.

It is truly a remarkable run that he’s on, and ominously, he actually only needs three more to become a history-maker.

The record for most goals in a single Championship season is currently held by Glenn Murray, who scored 30 for Crystal Palace in the 2012/13 campaign.

Toney has nine games remaining before the season is out, meaning there is more than a reasonable chance he will break the record.

His electric form continues amid transfer links to Wolves (TEAMtalk, March 2021).

Clearly the Championship is no sweat for Toney.

His amazing haul this season surely suggests he is now ready to play in the top-flight, and Wolves have got to keep a close eye on the situation.

Certainly if Brentford fail to win promotion (they are currently fourth in the table) then Wolves should be looking to get involved.

If Jose cannot stake a bold enough claim in the next couple of months to turn his Molineux loan move permanent, then Toney should definitely be considered.
