The Peterborough Telegraph understands ‘The Hornets’ have been monitoring Toney since the turn of the year.

And Posh can expect an offer from the top-flight side even if they lose their ongoing battle against relegation to the Championship.

A source, who wished to remain anonymous, told the PT. “Toney has been on Watford’s radar throughout 2020 and they like what they have seen.

“If they go down they will have £40 million in parachute payments and they would expect Toney to go well at Championship level.”

Posh are believed to want around £10 million for a 24 year-old who scored 26 goals in a shortened 2019-20 League One campaign.

Championship promotion contenders Brentford, Leeds and Fulham have also been linked with Toney, while interest has also arrived from overseas in the shape of MSL side New York Bulls and Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig.

Scottish giants Celtic and Rangers have also been linked with Toney.

Posh turned down a £4 million bid from New York earlier this month.

Here is a rundown of the clubs chasing Toney with the odds on the move happening...
