Arsenal 3/1 to sign AC Milan’s Carlos Bacca in January
Arsene Wenger could be about to bolster his striker force next month by signing AC Milan’s Carlos Bacca.
The latest odds say Bacca is 3/1 to join the Gunners in January, with Wenger seeing a number of his strikers suffer injuries this season.
Both Olivier Giroud and Lucas Perez have faced periods on the sidelines, while Danny Welbeck has yet to feature this season.
Arsenal aren’t the only ones set to do some mid-season deals, with Everton 5/2 to sign Napoli’s Manolo Gabbiadini next month.
The move, while bringing a timely boost for the Toffees, has been tipped by some to be a precursor to a Romelu Lukaku departure next summer.
Across Merseyside, Daniel Sturridge could be about to end his stay in the north-west, with 5/1 saying the striker swaps Liverpool for West Ham in January.
And Joe Hart could be on his way to a Premier League return, although it might have to wait.
Stoke and Southampton look set to go head-to-head in the race for Schalke striker Eric Choupo-Moting, with the Potters slight favourites at 5/1.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “January is fast approaching, and Premier League teams up and down the table are seeking additional firepower upfront.”
After a thumping 5-1 win over West Ham lifted them into second in the table, Arsenal turn their attentions to European matters this week.
Wenger leads his side to Switzerland on Tuesday to face Basel, and the bookies make it 5/4 that the Gunners continue their recent run with another victory.
