Ray Parlour has urged Arsenal to fly under the radar this summer with a bid for Brentford striker Ivan Toney.

The Gunners are on the look out for a new forward, possibly two, after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang left in January and with both Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah out of contract.

While the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Tammy Abraham are reportedly targets, former Arsenal star Parlour has reasoned why 14-goal Toney could prove a better option.

He told talkSPORT: “The strikers they’ll be looking at, they’ll also be looking at the other clubs interested in those strikers.

“You don’t want to be getting into bidding wars. How many clubs will be after Toney, if he’s available? That’s the sort of striker I would be trying to get at Arsenal.”

Transfer target Jesus netted again for Manchester City in their victory over Real Madrid in Tuesday night’s Champions League final, and Rio Ferdinand believes the Brazilian is underrated.

“I think [Jesus] falls into the category of where some fans think he is not a No9 for Manchester City, but I guarantee if you ask all the players in that City dressing room would they have him in their team, of course they would,” he said on BT Sport.

“He works hard, he is committed, he scores goals and drags players out to create space for other players.”
