Clubs could clamour for cut price Fernando
Rumours are circulating that Chelsea are very close to offloading their misfit striker, Fernando Torres, although Hills think that he will remain a Chelsea player for the rest of the season at least, offering 4/11 that he still at Chelsea come the first day of February 2012. It would appear that the favourites for his signature should he leave the Blues, could be mega-rich Malaga for whom Torres is 11/2 to sign for before the end of the January transfer window. Man Utd are 8/1 to snap up Torres.
"To say Torres is currently suffering from a crisis of confidence would be an understatement and Chelsea could consider sending him out on loan or even sell him should he not improve quickly," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Despite losing to Chelsea on Monday, Manchester City still hold the envious record of scoring in every match this season and William Hill are betting on who will be the first side to keep a clean sheet against the current league leaders. Arsenal, who face City on Sunday, are the 9/2 favourites, with Stoke offered at 10/1. They are 8/15 to score in each of the next five matches.
