Odds slashed: Arsenal move from 10/1 to 4/7 to sign PL ace after Sky report huge development
Arsenal are now the massive favourites to complete a January move for West Brom defender Jonny Evans.
Just a week ago, Premier league rivals Manchester City were 1/5 and Arsenal were 10/1 as it looked like the enforcer would be heading to the league leaders.
However, in a dramatic development, Sky Sports reported on Thursday that Aymeric Laporte was close to joining Manchester City from Athletic Bilbao.
It was claimed that Manchester City were happy to pay the £57m release clause and break their transfer record to bring the centre-back to the Etihad.
That saw a dramatic reversal of the odds, with SkyBet now putting Arsenal as the massive runaway favourites to sign Evans at 4/7.
Man City are now the closest rivals to Arsenal in the market, but way back at 16/1.
The move looks even more certain after West Brom reportedly agreed a deal for Evan’s replacement on Thursday.
The Birmingham Mail claimed that the west midlands side had reached agreement over the transfer of defender Ali Gabr from Egyptian club Zamalek.
