Arsenal backed to beat Liverpool to huge signing

Thomas Lemar backed to join Arsenal

Punters think the Gunners will move again for the Monaco winger if they sell their wantaway star player to Man City.

Despite Arsene Wenger admitting just days ago a deal for Thomas Lemar was dead, 61% of bets in the last 2 hours have been on the Frenchman moving to the Emirates. After being linked heavily with Liverpool and Barcelona the last few days, Lemar is now as short as 9/4 (best price 12/1) to make the move to the Emirates, after being available at 33/1 just last night.

This big move in the market is linked to Arsenal’s possible sale of Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean is now an odds-on shot to join up with old manager Pep Guardiola at best odds of 1/2, and punters clearly believe that if the Gunners do receive a big enough bid from City – and accept – they will reinvest the money immediately on long-term target Lemar. The in-demand Monaco winger has been as short as 1/5 to make the move already this summer.

Another player that has long been linked with Arsenal and could be lined up as a replacement for Sanchez is Julian Draxler. The young German will now find his game time limited after the signings of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe have added to a forward line that already included the likes of Edinson Cavani, Angel Di Maria and Lucas Moura. Draxler is 2/1 to sign for the Gunners before the deadline.

Oddchecker spokesman, George Elek: “Is this good news or bad news for Arsenal? It’s hard to say as the arrival of Lemar would surely see Alexis Sanchez move to Manchester City. Having been strongly linked to both Liverpool and Barcelona in recent days, the Gunners are the ones being punted today to land the man that they have been chasing all summer.”

    Bookies have a vested interest in creating excitement on deadline day. I wouldn’t trust them. They deal in profits based on fantasy.

    bbc.con is reporting
    Madrid want to exchange
    Varane for Mertesacker
    Bale for Wilshere
    Ronaldo for Wellbeck.

    Lemar might not live up to our expectation in the premier league. Arsenal need proven players like Hazard etc to improve the side. He could be a waste of money as he need time to develop in the league.

    There is no point in Arsenal buying anyone whilst Wenger remains.His tactics,team selections and motivational skills are completely “shot”.Lemar would just represent yet another young player with bags of potential that had been left unfulfilled under Wenger’s lackadaisical coaching methods.
    That said,as last Sunday proved,in spades,there is no point in keeping players who don’t want to put any effort in for the team.This being the case Alexis has to be sold and Ozil should not be selected.Unfortunately there is no-one out there who wants to pay a fee for the enigma that is Mezut Ozil….given his horrendous salary and desire for this to increase!
    This mess is akin to the worst days of Terry Neil managing a team which could only motivate itself to make an effort in the cup competitions.Arsene Wenger is gripping on to control by his finger tips.The International Break has given him time to re-group but by the time Arsenal have played Bournemouth and Chelsea I believe that the insipid Board and absentee Owner will be forced to act….A “Legacy” crumbling around his ears when the correct decision would have been to walk away with his head held high following the FA Cup win against Chelsea.Instead he chose to sign on for two more years by going straight to Kronke (circumnavigating the Board) and promising to do what he has long since been unable to do…Change his outlook and challenge for the League….What a f*****g mess!!

    Forget it. All will come clear by 12 midnight.
    Expect Wenger’s stubborn reacting at press briefing. To him no player to buy. I wonder whether we have different market from others.
    Athletico Madrid under ban are more active than Arsenal.
