Betting update: Tottenham tipped to sign Arsenal star
By Harvey Byrne
Tottenham have been installed as the second favourites to sign Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez with his future at the Gunners in doubt.
The 28-year-old will enter the final year of his contract in the summer with no signs of a new deal being offered.
However, the player reportedly wants to stay in England’s capital and Ladbrokes have installed Spurs at odds of 3/1.
The north London club are closely trailing rivals Chelsea, who hold odds of 2/1, while the pair are followed up by cash-rich French club Paris Saint-Germain at 7/2.
Sanchez has been a firm favourite with Arsenal fans following his £31.7million move from La Liga giants Barcelona in 2014.
