Manchester United are keeping tabs on Brentford striker Ivan Toney, according to The Mirror.

The report adds Manchester United will make a move for the 26 year old striker should Cristiano Ronaldo and Anthony Martial leave the club this summer.

The Brentford striker is also attracting serious interest from Newcastle, West Ham and Leeds United.

The 26-year-old enjoyed a hugely impressive first campaign in the Premier League, scoring 12 goals and providing five assists in 33 appearances for Thomas Frank’s side.

The report also adds that Brentford are reluctant to lose their star man this summer, particularly after losing Christian Eriksen.

Christian Eriksen completed a move to Manchester United earlier this week following a six-month spell with Thomas Frank’s side.
