Arsenal are a punter’s worst enemy.
World-beaters on their day, but the Gunners are equally capable of a coupon-destroying defeat to West Brom.
Considering Arsene Wenger’s reputation for underwhelming in the transfer market, we would not advise that you bet on Arsenal making any HUGE summer signings.
However, just for interest, let’s look at some Arsenal transfer bets.
Below is a list of three players Arsenal are favourites to sign.
Daniel Sturridge – 6/1 to sign for Arsenal before September 3 (skyBET)
Sturridge is expected to stay at Liverpool, but the Emirates Stadium is his most likely destination should he leave, suggest skyBET, who make Paris Saint-Germain (10-1), Manchester City (12-1) Chelsea (16-1) and Tottenham Hotspur (16-1) the other main candidates.
Riyad Mahrez – 11/4 to sign for Arsenal before September 3 (skyBET)
This one seems more realistic. Leicester City have a fight on their hands to keep their playmaker, with skyBET only offering 1/2 on him staying this summer. Arsenal are the team with the best chance of prizing him away, while Barcelona (7-1), PSG (10-1), Chelsea (20-1), Man City 22-1 and Real Madrid (28-1) are all considered outsiders.
Jamie Vardy – 4/7 for Arsenal to be his next club (Paddy Power)
He’s not quite as refined as Olivier Giroud, but so what!? Vardy equals goals, which is exactly what Arsenal need. Paddy Power suggest Vardy may well join the Gunners, offering 4/7 on them being the next stop in his remarkable career. Liverpool (4-1), Man United (5-1), Spurs (10-1) and Chelsea (12-1) are also in the frame.
