Odds slashed on Luiz making shock move from Chelsea to Arsenal
David Luiz is his shortest odds yet to join Arsenal before the transfer window ends.
Our traders have cut odds of the Brazilian leaving Chelsea for the Gunners from 16/1 to 9/2.
And with the Blues now just 2/7 to sign Olivier Giroud, that deal could be the trigger for Luiz to make the opposite journey across London.
With over 120 Premier League appearances under his belt, as well as Champions League-winning experience, he’d be an impressive addition to Arsenal’s ranks.
However, Arsene Wenger’s reported interest in the 29-year-old means that the North London outfit could mean the club have gone cold on West Bromwich Albion defender Jonny Evans.
The Emirates outfit had been 1/10 to sign the Northern Irishman last week, but those odds have drifted out to 11/8.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “All eyes will be on Aubameyang’s possible Arsenal move, but the latest odds suggest another blockbuster name could be arriving at the Emirates in the next two days.”
Arsenal visit Swansea at the Liberty Stadium tonight, with 1/2 for the visitors to take maximum points.
