ARSENAL and Chelsea are reportedly set for a transfer battle over banned Brentford star Ivan Toney.
And Bees boss Thomas Frank admits his star man could be sold once an eight-month betting suspension ends in January.
Toney, 27, is back in Brentford training after serving half his ban for breaching FA betting rules.
The England international will be able to return to action in 2024.
And the Mirror claims Toney already has a host of admirers chasing his signature.
Arsenal are known to be big fans and were reportedly lining up a move for Toney in the previous transfer window before his ban kicked in.

Likewise, Chelsea are also keen as they struggle to score goals under new boss Mauricio Pochettino.
The duo could now battle it out to seal a £60million deal for Toney.
But they are likely to wait until next summer, when the hitman has just 12 months remaining on his contract.
It would also provide Toney with the chance to get his match sharpness back with Brentford.
