Assessing the odds – This summer’s top transfer targets

As transfer season gets into full-swing, we decided to take a look at some of the biggest transfer rumours around, and look at the best betting options for each one.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

It’s no secret that Dortmund struggle to keep hold of their star players, regardless of how many titles they win.

Top strikers are hard to come by, as Euro 2016 has taught us, and Aubameyang has emerged as one of the most sought after strikers in Europe, thanks to his excellent season for BVB.

The Premier League is considered his most likely destination, with Manchester City (2/1), Arsenal (14/1) and Manchester United (18/1) leading the chase at the bookies.

 

With City already boasting Agüero and Bony, they look strong up front.

However, Guardiola’s arrival may mean a change up front, especially considering Agüero’s injury record and mercurial form.

Arsenal have signalled their interest in a new striker, following an unsuccessful pursuit of Jamie Vardy, but are still heavily linked to a move for Karim Benzema.

United’s signing of Zlatan, and Mourinho’s statements on using Rooney up front, suggests the Gabon forward isn’t high on their list.

Hal Robson-Kanu

The free agent has gained quite the reputation this summer, thanks to a string of impressive performances in Euro 2016.

 

The bookies have started rolling out odds on his next club, and Leicester at 6/1 are predicted to lead the charge for his signature.

The Foxes are shrewd operators, and picking up the Wales star is not out of the realm of possibility. Plus, they won’t have to win the lottery or break any transfer records to claim his signature.

Swansea are also 6/1 odds to capture Robson-Kanu, but the lure of Champions League football at the King Power make Leicester seem like a more likely destination.

Hector Bellerin

Arguably the best full-back in the Premier League, the Spaniard is reported to be high on Barcelona’s shopping list.

 

Since the departure of Dani Alves, Barça are left with former winger Alexi Vidal, utility man Sergi Roberto, Douglas and Martin Montoya, none of which are up to the standard that the Catalan club demand.

Odds of Bellerin making the switch to the Camp Nou are currently around 10/3, while the changes of him remaining in London are 1/5.

While he may he pledged his future to the Gunners, the lure of the Spanish giants may be too much.
