There’s plenty of transfer talk now that the European Championship has finished and with the start of the football season getting ever closer, we’ll take a look at the reported transfer rumours.
Christian Benteke (Liverpool)
After a hugely disappointing debut season at Anfield and falling behind Sturridge and Origi, Crystal Palace have been heavily linked with the striker and they already had a £25 million bid rejected. West Ham are another club to show interest but have yet to make a bid. Liverpool are believed to be keen to recruit as much as possible from the £32.5 million they paid for him in 2015.
Oddschecker verdict:Sign for Crystal Palace – 1/3
Hal Robson-Kanu (Free Agent)
Robson-Kanu was one of the many stars from the Wales team at Euro 2016. He's let his contract run down at Reading as he’s keen for a move to the premier League. Hull have shown interest in the striker and you can currently get odds at 10/11 that he will make a move to the KC stadium. If you called the move same time last week, you could have got odds of 12/1.
Oddschecker verdict:Sign for Hull – 10/11
Daley Blind (Manchester United)
The Dutchman is rumoured to be surplus requirements with Mourinho making him available for transfer. Blind was one of United’s most consistent performers last season but Mourinho doesn’t believe that he possesses the physical stature to be first choice in his defence. Everton are believed to be interested in the Dutchman with their manager Ronald Koeman keen to link up with his fellow countryman. Sky Bet have odds at 2/1 that he will make the move to Goodison Park but if you move quickly you can get 4/1 at Bet Victor.
Oddschecker verdict:Sign for Everton– 4/1
Romelu Lukaku (Everton)
The Belgium striker has never been quiet on his intentions of fulfilling his potential and playing in the Champions League. A return to his previous club Chelsea had look likely with Sky Bet having odds at 11/4 at the beginning of the month but he’s now drifted out to 10/1 to make the return to Stamford Bridge. Arsenal are believed to be leading the race for Lukaku signature and you can currently get odds at 2/1 that he will make a move to the Emirates. If not the Premier League, there’s plenty of interest around Europe with a move to PSG at 14/1 or a move to AC Millan currently at 10/1.
Oddschecker verdict:Sign for Chelsea– 10/1
Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon)
West Ham have already had a club record £32 million bid rejected for the Frenchman with Lyon believing to be wanting closer to £40 million. After scoring 21 goals in Ligue 1 last season there is a queue of clubs that would love his signature. Lyon secured Champions League football next season so it might be a big ask for the Hammers to prize him away, you can get odds at 5/1 that he will make the move to West Ham. Recently Arsenal have also been linked with Lacazette, they will be able to offer him Champions League football and Wenger will have the money available if he wishes to sanction the move.
Oddschecker verdict:Sign for Arsenal– 2/1
