Brentford lead race for Peterborough star Siriki Dembele after glowing Ivan Toney reference following transfer request

BRENTFORD lead the race for Peterborough’s Siriki Dembele – after a glowing reference from Ivan Toney.

Championship top-scorer Toney, 24, left Posh for the Bees in the summer in a £9million deal.

And he has urged his new employers to sign up former team-mate Dembele.

The 24-year-old hotshot has told Brentford that the winger is the best player in League One.

Dembele wants to leave Peterborough this month.

He has handed in a transfer request, as SunSport exclusively revealed on January 4.

Bournemouth and Watford are also big admirers.

And Premier League side Fulham have been checking the ex-Grimsby man out too.

But heading the queue now are Brentford.

And the Bees have a proud history of developing lower league talent.


Toney has 16 league goals already this term.

He is their most recent rough diamond plucked from down the pyramid.

And he follows in the footsteps of two other big-hitters.

Striker Ollie Watkins is now starring for Aston Villa in the top-flight after a big-money move.

And his team-mate Ezri Konsa also came through their ranks in West London.
