Bookies.com previews a number of high-profile transfers that could happen on summer deadline day
With the summer deadline day approaching, Bookies.com looks at all the potential signings that could go through in the Premier League, as clubs around the country attempt to thrash out last-minute deals.
A number of high-profile players could still yet make a move and as a result, we go through all of the likeliest deals that could happen, with the latest odds available.
Arsenal are one team who haven’t been as active in previous windows, with Petr Cech their only high-profile signing so far. With many of the opinion that the Gunners need a top class striker, Uruguayan forward Edinson Cavani has been linked in recent days. Ladbrokes are offering odds of 7/2 that he will have signed for the north London club by the time the transfer window closes.
While Manchester United are expected to be active on the final day, one player who could be leaving is Mexican striker Javier Hernandez. Having reportedly been told by manager Louis van Gaal that he is surplus to requirements, there are indications that he is nearing closer to a move to German outfit Bayer Leverkusen.
With this looking increasingly likely, you can get an odds-on 1/10 price with BetVictor that this will be his next permanent club by the time the transfer window closes.
One story which has dragged on for a number of weeks concerns Everton centre back John Stones. Chelsea have had a number of offers in excess of £30m rejected, though the Toffees have stood firm on their stance. It could mean that a blockbuster bid is made at the very last minute, with the Blues still holding out hope that they can snare him.
To be a Chelsea player by the end of the transfer window, he is 11/2 with SkyBet and you just never know with Jose Mourinho. Another player who is thought to be on Chelsea’s radar is Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba. A blockbuster bid is said to be being put together, though the Frenchman is 8/1 with SkyBet to be a Blues player by the time the transfer window slams shut.
