Arsene's Crisis And Transfer Specials...FA(cebook) Cup Odds
Arsenal are having a torrid time of things at the moment with players wanting out, injuries and suspensions. Hills predict that they will struggle to take many points from the next two games (against Liverpool and Manchester United) offering 7/2 they get none and 9/4 just one. Arsenal will need to strengthen if they are to challenge for any honours this year and Hills offer 13/8 that Wenger makes four or more signings before the end of the transfer window. Samir Nasri is 1/12 to leave Arsenal by the end of the transfer window and 6/1 to remain at the Emirates. Arsenal are 1/6 to finish another season with no silverware.
"Arsene is already under pressure and the odds suggest that Arsenal could feasibly have just one point after their first three games," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Wesley Sneijder looks as though his move to Manchester United may be drawing ever closer with Hills making him 8/11 to now make the move from Italy. He is Evens to stay with Inter. Luka Modric has been the subject of a new bid from Chelsea and he is 8/13 to make the Blues his next club.
