At this time of the year Arsenal fans are inundated with various (and sprurious) transfer rumours regarding just about every available (or even unavailable!) player on the planet, but I am a firm believer of checking out the bookies prices to give us an indication of whether we really have any chance of signing certain players.
Yes it is really just an indication of who people are betting on to arrive, but the fact is that there are always certain people who get a bit of “inside information” and have a little tickle on getting it right and making a few bob. And here’s a little tip, if you fancy betting on any of these then you should check out the best betting sites so you can get some free money to to invest rather than use your own hard-earned cash!
Anyway, so who is being tipped by the bookies to move to Arsenal? First of all I was very surprised to even see us linked to Jamie Vardy at all, but Betvictor have us down as 3/1 favourites, with Liverpool and Man City next in the betting at 6/1. In the “next club” betting (excluding Leicester) the Gunners are as low as 4/7 on, which means someone has been putting a LOT of money on this. It may seem a bit farfetched, but I remember a certain Man United manager in the last year of his contract signing a 29 year old striker, and he ended up retiring with League winners medal. Ring any bells?
We have been linked with another Leicester player, Riyad Mahrez, and Skybet have the betting (club after transfer window) as: Stay at Leicester 1/2 – Move to Arsenal 11/4… The next in the betting is PSG at 17/1 so it looks like a two-horse race to me.
A lot of fans are hoping that Arsenal sign Lukaku, and we have been heavily linked, but surprisingly the betting has us at 18/1 (6th favourites) with Chelsea odds on at 8/13…
As for John Stones, we can forget the Everton man as we are 25/1 shots to nab him…
Other than that, the only other possibility in the betting is Mauro Icardi. We are 6/1 favourites, but that only means he is expected to stay where he is for the moment.
I can’t find any prices for Alvaro Morata, surprisingly, so maybe we are all barking up the wrong tree on that one.
Would Arsenal fans be happy if we nded up with Jamie Vardy? I would!
Unibet have just issued prices for Vincent Janssen. Arsenal are 5/2 favourites to sign him, with Man United at 5/1 and Liverpool at 8/1….
