The summer transfer season is fast drawing to an end but there are many deals to be finalised before the 31st August deadline. Premier League teams have already surpassed £600 million spent in the 2016/2017 summer transfer season and more cash is to be splashed before the end of the transfer season. The best UK football betting sites are geared up for the events to transpire and make available a wide range of betting options for the transfer window period.
Arsenal has for a long-time, been linked with a move for Monaco’s Thomas Lemar. With most bookies reducing their odds and others even scrapping off the potential transfer, it seems highly likely that this deal may come through before the end of the summer transfer window.
Another club responsible for much of the transfer season is Manchester United. Man United’s flirtations with Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic started over a year ago, but a deal is still to be made. However, recent reports states that Manchester United may well be within reach of their target and has 5/4 odds according to William Hill of signing the Croatian international during this transfer season.
Chelsea made frantic efforts to add a new defensive linkman to their squad after their loss in the Community Shield against Arsenal. Antonio Conte mentioned that the club has to look for Matic’s replacement in haste as their premier league defence depends on it. Chelsea has been quick in searching for their man and are in advanced stages to bring Joao Cancelo to Stamford Bridge.
Manchester City strengthened their squad early in the season, but require more reinforcements to be title contenders according to manager, Pep Guardiola. As a result, Man City earmarked Arsenals’ Chile forward as a suitable choice to bolster their striking options. Though the player may well be interested in a move to the Etihad in search of Champions League football, Arsenal is adamant that they’re not going to sell one of their most prized assets to a direct rival.
One club which has truly exercised its financial muscle during this summer transfer window is Everton. Everton brought in 9 players covering all areas within the goalkeeping, defence, midfield and attack bases. However, the club is still on a hunt for more talent, especially forward options. Everton looks to add at least one among Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck. With the money from Lukaku’s sale, Everton still has the financial muscle to pull off another big transfer.
Tottenham’s core English talent of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Danny Rose and Eric Dier remains intact, but the club lacks depth. To this date, they haven’t acquired many players to beef up the squad and it is expected that they are to do so before the transfer season ends. Fulham’s Ryan Sessognon is a target as a back up to both wing backs, Kieran Trippier on the right and Danny Rose on the left. Celtic’s young forward is also being touted as a potential partner upfront to Harry Kane or as the chief backup. With a limited number of forward options, Tottenham may be persuaded to break the bank in order to add more depth to their squad.
Newly promoted Newcastle, is gearing up for life in the premier league and has its sights on experienced players to help them survive the first season in the league. Newcastle is linked with moves for Arsenal full backs Carl Jenkinson and Kieran Gibbs. However, any potential deal for Newcastle will have to be done after the club releases one or some of their players as the registered premier league squad is full up.
