Transfer Window Set To Spark Betting Bonanza

Tevez, Borini, Barton, Adebayor & Forest Latest

After a slow transfer window so far, the summer has really warmed up with a number of huge transfer stories hitting the headlines. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic seemingly on his way to PSG, William Hill make AC Milan 5/6 to be the club with which Carlos Tevez is plying his trade at the end of the transfer window although current club, Manchester City, are the same price.

“Tevez performed a spectacular u-turn towards the end of last season by saying that he was at Manchester City for the long haul but with AC Milan seemingly willing to mould the team around him, the lure of Italy may be too strong,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Liverpool have reportedly had a transfer offer for Fabio Borini accepted by Roma and William Hill make the Italian striker 10/3 second favourite to be Liverpool’s leading scorer next season behind 6/4 Luis Suarez. He is also 6/4 to score more than 10 goals next season.

QPR’s Joey Barton may face the ignominy of dropping down a division with Blackburn apparently keen on taking the midfielder on loan. William Hill make Rovers Even money to be Barton’s next club, with ambitious Nottingham Forest 7/4 second favourites.

“Barton is ruled out of the first 12 games of the season, which will take him up to November, which would then allow a Championship side to swoop for him outside of the transfer window,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Emmanuel Adebayor looks set to sign for Spurs and William Hill are offering 2/1 that he scores two or more goals against Arsenal.

Glenn Hoddle is the 4/6 favourite to be named as the next permanent Nottingham Forest job, with Roy Keane (backed in from 8/1 to 2/1) as the second favourite. Mick McCarthy has also been well backed at 9/4 while Thursday’s odds on favourite, Darren Ferguson, is out to 9/2.
