Mahrez and Evans biggest weekend movers as Liverpool and Arsenal close
Riyad Mahrez and Jonny Evans look set for moves to Liverpool and Arsenal this month, according to football traders.
We can report the pair’s odds of a January transfer have been notably slashed, with Mahrez now odds-on at 2/5 to swap Leicester for Liverpool.
Evans was as big as 20/1 last week for an Arsenal move, but his odds have been slashed to just 6/4 following the Gunners’ embarrassing defeat to Nottingham Forest.
Alfie Mawson looks likely to leave Swansea City during this window and his odds of joining Watford have been substantially cut from 12/1 to just 13/8.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s been a huge weekend as far as transfer betting goes, with several players now looking more likely than ever for big money moves.”
