Is Gary Gunning for Arsenal as Fab heads for exit?
Owen Coyle has said that he has had no dialogue with Liverpool regarding the future of Gary Cahill and despite the Reds interest in the defender, William Hill make Arsenal the 1/2 favourites to win the race to sign him. Chelsea are 7/2 second favourites to be Cahill's next club with Liverpool 6/1.
Kenny Dalglish has been a very busy boy since taking over from Roy Hodgson in January and Hills 6/4 that he brings in between 3-5 more players and 11/8 he signs six or more.
Liverpool's first game is at home to Sunderland and Hills go 6/10 that they keep a clean sheet, 8/5 they concede one, 9/2 two, 28/1 three and 80/1 four or more.
"Liverpool's defence has been shaky to say the least this pre-season and Dalglish realises that his back line's deficiencies need remedying before the start of the season," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "Saying this, however, Arsenal are the favourites to sign Cahill."
In a potential U-Turn, Joey Barton has said he could well stay at Newcastle for the next year and Hills make him 11/2 to do so, although he is 11/2 to have departed St James' Park by the time the summer transfer window slams shut.
Everton and Stoke currently head the betting to sign Barton at 11/4, while Arsenal are offered at 4/1 with Spurs 9/2.
Cesc Fabregas took part in Arsenal's open training session but William Hill make him 1/4 to have left the Emirates by the end of the transfer window.
