Bookies Give Arsenal An 80% Chance Of Signing Thomas Partey
Will Thomas Partey join Arsenal?
News has been breaking on social media that Arsenal will pay the release clause for Atletico Madrid's central midfielder Thomas Partey.
Bookmakers also believe that the move will happen and the tough-tackling star is 1/4 (-400) to join the Gunners. On the day that they've announced Gunnersaurus has been sacked they are now 80% likely to sign the Madrid midfielder. The odds have shortened dramatically with player priced at 4/9 (-225) to make the move just one hour ago.
If Arsenal pull off the transfer swoop then Thomas Partey will be the first Ghanian to play for Arsenal since Emmanuel Frimpong who was with the club between 2011-2014.
It seems like it's Arsenal or nothing for Partey with Chelsea the next most likely player to sign the midfielder at 25/1 (+2500) which implies a slim 3.8% chance that he moves to West London.
Will Houssem Aouar join Arsenal?
Arsenal fans have been crying out for Houseem Aouar to sign for the club since his standout performances in Lyon's exciting Champions League run.
Sadly for Arsenal fans it's looking unlikely, with the young Frenchman, yet to be capped by his native France, just 6/4 (+225) to join the Gunners. That implies a 30.8% chance that the young star gets a move to Arsenal this summer.
At a 30.8% chance of Aouar moving to Arsenal it isn't over but it's a huge slide in odds, considering the midfielder was 1/20 (-2000) to make this move last Thursday. That's taken the chances of a possible move for Houssem Aouar to Arsenal from 95% likely to just 30.8%
Will Jorginho move to Arsenal?
A prospective move for Jorginho from Chelsea to Arsenal isn't an exciting one for fans but it looks like a possibility at this stage. The Brazilian-born Italy midfielder is 13/8 (+163) to complete a transfer across London.
It's a path that is well trodden with Petr Cech, Willian and David Luiz all moving from Chelsea to Arsenal in recent years. Now there is a 38.1% chance that the former Napoli midfielder will also make that move, which seems increasingly likely if moves for Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar fail.
