Done Deal: Trippier On His Way
Dani Alves Backed To Join Arsenal!
The most popular transfer bet on Wednesday was for Dani Alves to move to Arsenal, with his odds of joining the North London side being cut to 6/1. Juventus remain the odds on favourites for his signature however, Arsenal are now joint second favourites with Manchester City to sign the Brazilian.
Dani Alves to sign for before 3rd September: 4/7 Juventus; 6/1 Arsenal; 6/1 Manchester City
Betting Closed On Fekir To Betis
William Hill have closed betting on Nabil Fekir to Real Betis with a deal seemingly agreed between the Spanish side and Lyon. His odds had come in from 4/6 to 1/4 overnight. Liverpool had been amongst the runners following the transfer saga in January, however it is thought Klopp has his sights set elsewhere.
Money For Zaha To Everton
Wilfried Zaha\'s odds of moving to Everton have been trimmed from 25/1 to 20/1 following a small gamble. Arsenal remain the favourites to sign him at 8/13 with Spurs 6/1.
Pogba Odds On To Move To Real
Despite his man of the match performance against Leeds in Perth, Paul Pogba still looks to be on his way out of Old Trafford. Real Madrid are reportedly clearing the decks in order to be able to bring the Frenchman in with Gareth Bale 6/4 to move to the Chinese Super League this summer. As a result, Pogba is 8/11 to head to the Bernabeu and 7/4 to go Juventus.
Lukaku Keen On Inter Move
Romelu Lukaku\'s expected summer departure from Manchester United was a talking point once more as the Belgian striker was left out of the squad to face Leeds in Australia. He is reportedly keen on a move to Inter and the Nerrazzurri are 1/6 to sign. Should the Icardi/Dzeko transfer dominoes fail to fall, Lukaku is 5/1 to join Juventus and 20/1 to join AC Milan.
Zaha Slashed To Join Everton After Liverpool Based Gamble
William Hill have slashed the odds of Wilfried Zaha joining Everton after a Liverpool based gamble saw his price collapse from 20/1 to 5/1 in the space of 30 minutes. Arsenal have drifted from 1/4 to 10/11 to sign him. “We had a couple of punters in Liverpool trying to stick as much as they could on Zaha to move to Everton at 20/1,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “That price has long gone and his odds of joining Arsenal are now also on the drift.”
Wilfried Zaha to sign for before 3rd September: 10/11 Arsenal; 5/1 Everton; 6/1 Tottenham; 6/1 Dortmund; 18/1 Liverpool; 25/1 Bayern Munich; 25/1 Manchester City
Real Sticking Their Beek In At Ajax
The Ajax side that so impressed on their way to the Champions League semi-final last season looks set to be further broken with Donny van de Beek’s odds of joining Real Madrid being slashed from 6/5 to 8/13 in the last 24 hours. Barcelona are 8/1. Paul Pogba’s odds of joining Real have drifted as a result, from 8/13 to 8/11. He is 7/4 to join Juventus.
Rose To Bloom In Paris?
Danny Rose has been linked with a move out of Spurs and his transfer odds suggest that PSG are in pole position to sign the full back. The French Champions are 2/1 ahead of Juventus at 4/1 and Manchester United at 8/1.
Punters Backing Bale To Join Chinese Revolution
Amidst rumours that Gareth Bale is set to become the world\'s first £1m a week signing, punters have piled on to him moving to the Chinese Super League. A number of teams have been favourites to capture the Welshman\'s signature this summer, including Manchester United and Spurs, albeit briefly however, punters now believe he is off to China, backing the odds in from 6/4 on Sunday to 2/5 today. The deal may not yet be over the line, however with Bayern\'s odds coming in from 7/1 to 5/1 and PSG coming in from 20/1 to 6/1.
Gareth Bale to sign for before 3rd September: 2/5 any Chinese Super League side; 5/1 Bayern Munich; 6/1 PSG
Maguire\'s Manchester Mission
With multiple sources saying that Manchester United have had a bid for Harry Maguire accepted by Leicester, his odds of joining the Old Trafford side have plunged from 1/4 to 1/7. \"The odds of him joining Manchester United were already short yet the latest news suggesting that a deal has been struck means that Manchester United may finally have got their man,\" said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. \"Unless 4/1 shots Manchester City can pull off a last minute coup.\"
Harry Maguire to sign for before 3rd September: 1/7 Manchester United; 4/1 Manchester City
Griezmann Calls On Barca To Bring Back Neymar
New Barca signing, Antoine Griezmann has called on the club to add Neymar once again to the attacking ranks. William Hill make the Brazilian 1/2 to join the Spanish Champions.
Neymar to sign for before 3rd September: 1/2 Barcelona; 9/2 Real Madrid
Bale To China - Done Deal?
Gareth Bale is 1/6 to move to the Chinese Super League having been backed in from 2/5 overnight. \"When you see punters backing a price like 1/6, you know it\'s pretty much a done deal.\"
Juventus And Napoli To Battle For Icardi
Mauro Icardi has been the subject of much transfer speculation this summer with a number of sides seemingly interested in signing the Argentinean troublemaker. It would seem his preferred move would be to Juventus, however no offer has been fothcoming. The Old Lady are 4/6 to sign him however, Napoli have moved into contention. They are 7/4 from 11/4 and it looks like a straight shoot out to sign him.
Icardi to sign for before 3rd September: 4/6 Juventus; 7/4 Napoli; 10/1 Manchester United
Bale Still Odds-On For China But Price On Drift
Gareth Bale\'s price of moving to China has drifted considerably in the last 24 hours, however the Welshman remains odds on to head to the Far East. He was 1/6 at points on Tuesday, yet is now 2/7 to move to the Chinese Super League with LA Galaxy coming into view. The Galaxy are 10/1 to capture Bale\'s signature, the same price as PSG and behind Bayern at 9/1.
United\'s Summer Spree To Continue
Harry Maguire is 1/7 to sign for Manchester United this summer amidst reports that a deal has been agreed between United and Leicester. There has been no movement in that market however, over the last few days. Surprisingly, the odds of Christian Eriksen moving to Manchester United have been slashed in the last 24 hours from 5/1 to 5/2 after a number of bets we placed on that particular outcome. Real Madrid remain the favourites to sign the Danish player, however it appears that they now have competition. United are also the favourites to sign Nicolas Pepe (7/4) and Sergei Milinkovic-Savic (2/5).
Spurs Become Favourites To Sign Dybala... Everton Odds On Signing Costa Slashed
Tottenham have leapfrogged PSG in the race to sign Paulo Dybala this summer. The North London side are 7/4 from 4/1 to sign Dybala while the French Champions have drifted to 10/3 from 2/1. Everton have seemingly entered the race to sign Diego Costa. Costa is 5/6 to sign for Wolves, however, Everton\'s odds have almost halved in the last 24 hours from 7/1 to 4/1.
United\'s Pepe Hopes Dashed As Napoli Hold Talks?
Manchester United\'s hopes of signing Nicolas Pepe have taken a hit as Napoli overtook them in the betting to sign the Ivory Coast winger. Manchester United had been 7/4 favourites to sign Pepe and while they remain the same price, Napoli have emerged from the chasing pack to become the 2/5 market leaders amidst rumours they have spoken to the player.
Everton Favourites To Sign Zaha For First Time This Summer
Everton have become the new favourites to sign Wilfried Zaha after another gamble. Eight days ago, William Hill were forced to slash their odds of Zaha joining the Merseyside club from 25/1 to 5/1 after a number of punters in Liverpool lumped on and it seems that there was more to the story than just speculation. Zaha is 11/10 to move to Everton with Arsenal 6/4. “We saw a major gamble last week on Zaha to Everton and so we cut our odds accordingly,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “We thought it was a bit of a strange one and so Arsenal remained favourite but the gamble has started up again today and it looks like the Toffees have stolen a march on their rivals.”
Wilfried Zaha to sign for before 3rd September: 11/10 Everton; 6/4 Arsenal; 16/1 Tottenham; 16/1 Dortmund; 18/1 Liverpool; 25/1 BAR
Pepe Instead Of Zaha At Emirates?
As Everton became favourites on Friday to sign Wilfried Zaha, Nicolas Pepe\'s odds of joining Arsenal collapsed. The Ivorian winger was 16/1 to join The Gunners however, those odds have come in considerably under the weight of a not insignificant gamble. He is 6/5 to head to the Emirates and 10/11 to join Napoli and after a summer where Pepe has been linked with a host of clubs, it now looks like a two horse race to get his signature.
Nicolas Pepe to sign for before 3rd September: 10/11 Napoli; 6/5 Arsenal; 8/1 Liverpool
Dybala In, Lukaku out?
If Manchester United manage to get Romelu Lukaku out of the door, it is possible that Paulo Dybala could be a target. We saw his odds come in on a move to Spurs on Friday and now, the punters have been backing United. The Old Trafford side are 3/1 from 5/1 to sign him which has taken them ahead of PSG in the betting and just behind Spurs who are 2/1. Much will be dependent on whether United can get rid of Romelu Lukaku who has been as short as 1/7 to join Inter this summer. Those odds are now 1/3 with Juventus coming into contention at 11/4 from 5/1.
Transfer Expert Punter Backs Moise Kean To Everton
A transfer expert based in Liverpool has just backed Moise Kean to Everton to the tune of £250 and as a result, the odds of the Juventus winger joining the Goodison club have plummeted. The punter who has already predicted Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid at 10/1 earlier this summer has gone big on Kean to Everton and as a result, the odds have tumbled from 6/4 to 4/7. “Usually a £250 bet would not be big enough to move the market so much however, the person who placed it seems to have bit of knowledge and so we are keeping this particular bettor on side,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
Neymar Cut To Join Juventus
Neymar\'s odds of joining Juventus have tumbled dramatically. All the chat during this transfer window has surrounded the Brazilian rejoining Barcelona, however, Juventus have come into contention. The odds have been cut from 5/1 to 15/8 in the last 24 hours, suggesting that Turin is a viable option. Barca are 4/6.
United and Spurs in two horse race for Dybala
It looks like a two horse race for Paulo Dybala\'s signature if he leaves Juventus this summer, with Manchester United slight favourites to sign him at 7/4. Tottenham are 2/1, with PSG some way back at 5/1.
Andy Carroll\'s odds of returning home have tumbled
Andy Carroll\'s odds of returning to Newcastle have tumbled in the last 24 hours. The former Newcastle target man has come in from Even money to 1/6 overnight and it looks highly likely a return to his boyhood club is on the cards.
Punters Pile On Butland For Villa Despite Heaton Arrival
Despite the signing of Tom Heaton, Aston Villa are the main candidates to sign Stoke City keeper, Jack Butland.
Wednesday saw a number of punters place bets on the Potters\' stopper joining Villa and his price collapsed from 10/11 to 1/5.
Bournemouth\'s Harry Wilson War With Villa And Newcastle
After his fantastic pre-season strike earlier this week, William Hill have seen the odds of Harry Wilson joining Bournemouth tumble.
Villa and Newcastle are 2/1 to sign Harry Wilson although Bournemouth\'s odds have tumbled from 6/1 to 7/2. I appears the competition to sign him is really hotting up.
Bruno Fernandes odds of joining Spurs slashed
Bruno Fernandes\' odds of signing for Tottenham this summer transfer window have been slashed this afternoon.
Spurs move into pole position to sign Fernandes as United slip
Bruno Fernandes is now odds on to join Tottenham this summer. After a gamble on Thursday, Spurs\' odds of signing Fernandes tumbled from 25/1 to 7/4 and now, he is 5/6 to join the club.
Manchester United, who have been as short as 1/6 this summer, are now 6/4 to sign Bruno Fernandes.
Inter aren\'t out of Lukaku race just yet
Inter Milan have been cut to sign Romelu Lukaku once again. They are 11/8 from 15/8 suggesting that the mooted swap deal with Juventus for Dybala may not be as clear cut as many think.
Sane on his way to Bayern - It\'s On!
Despite Pep Guardiola asserting that Leroy Sane is not for sale this summer, the money continues to come for the German winger to join the Bundesliga champions.
After the departure of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery, Bayern need some width and it seems like Sane is the man they want. Sane is 2/7 (from 4/7) to sign for Bayern.
Cherry Wilson? Dortmund Enter Frame For Harry
Bournemouth are the 6/4 favourites to sign Harry Wilson from Liverpool, although Borussia Dortmund are now the 7/4 second favourites.
Villa and Newcastle, who were the 2/1 favourites on Wednesday are 7/1 and 8/1 respectively.
Transfer latest: Coutinho, Lukaku, Zaha
Arsenal are the 6/4 favourites to sign Philippe Countinho but seemingly face competition from Liverpool and PSG. The Brazilian is 7/2 to rejoin his former side on Merseyside and 4/1 to join the French champions. Romelu Lukaku is odds on to move to Inter once again with his odds having been backed in from 11/8 to 1/2. He was 4/11 to join Juventus, however those odds have now drifted to 6/4. Another name who will surely be mentioned this week is that of Wilfried Zaha. The Palace winger is 1/2 to join Everton before the transfer window closes.
Tight race for Terriers role
Mark Hudson is the 6/4 favourite to take over as manager of Huddersfield with Chris Hughton 2/1 and Nigel Adkins 4/1. \"No real favourite has emerged for the job yet and there are a couple of names at the head of the betting,\" said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
