Bookmaker odds dictating Spurs’ summer transfer targets
With Mauricio Pochettino’s fate sealed in a fresh new contract, Tottenham Hotspur’s next aim has become to bring in some new faces to White Hart Lane. A handful of names have already been mentioned, leading bookmakers to offer odds on their chances of completing deals for every player in contention.
Some websites are keeping tabs on each transfer rumour circulating across the internet and there’s some truly exciting footballers being linked to Spurs. Betting on these potential transfers can be massively entertaining. That’s the reason why sites like tips from Footy Accumulators cover all of the speculation, along with thoughts on each player’s chances, their own football tips, and all of the strongest bookmaker odds.
Players linked to Spurs include:
Anthony Martial at 3/1:–
Several months back, reports in France claimed that Anthony Martial wanted to leave Manchester United after being under-used by Jose Mourinho. Almost 25% of those betting on his next move have put money behind the winger moving to Tottenham. They’ve been spoilt for choice too, as most bookmakers providing odds for the Frenchman have named more than twenty possible destinations including all of Europe’s top sides.
Any fan of Italian football will be well aware of Sassuolo winger Domenico Berardi, who’s been highly rated for several years. It’s likely that a lot of punters would be backing the Italian’s next move, but no bookie currently offers odds for him, which makes his situation even harder to predict. Spurs are said to be interested in him if his price tag in lowered, but Roma is another likely destination, as former Sassuolo boss Eusebio Di Francesco took charge at the Stadio Olimpico last summer.
Ryan Sessegnon at 5/1:–
The rampant performances from Ryan Sessegnon were enough to be awarded with several accolades and a play-off final win for Fulham, so it’s no shock to see him linked elsewhere. His situation changed somewhat with Fulham being promoted, as any attempt to stay will still see him in England’s top tier, but he’d be a perfect player for Spurs and would thread seamlessly into Poch’s homegrown side. Of all players in this list, Sessegnon is being backed the most to make a move, with Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Liverpool and both ‘To Stay at Fulham’ and ‘To Leave Fulham’ options being backed by punters in their football tips.
Matthjs de Ligt:–
Despite there being some unnerving rumours circulating on the topic of Toby Alderweireld’s possible switch to Manchester United, we haven’t heard much about the Belgium defender’s replacement. The only option has come in the form of eighteen-year-old Ajax centre-back Matthjs de Ligt, who bookmakers haven’t even provided a price for, which could be an indicator of it being set to happen or wide of the mark.
