Beleaguered Arsenal fans, having already suffered back-to-back defeats, are now preparing for an agonising Deadline Day – with various stars linked with moves away.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain should be the first to go, with a £35m switch to top four rivals Liverpool imminent.
Shkodran Mustafi has been linked with a move to Inter, rumours persist around Olivier Giroud’s future and Jack Wilshere has been encouraged to move on.
But, top of the agenda, will be star man Alexis Sanchez, who is seemingly pushing for a move to Man City – and is heavily backed at 3/10 to make it.
Optimistic Arsenal fans, and directors, are demanding City striker Sergio Aguero in exchange at odds of 5/1.
And, despite Raheem Sterling at 4/1 seeming a more realistic makeweight, we’ve paid out on all bets for Aguero to join the Gunners.
Asked about the pay-out spokesman Paddy Power said: “You’ve got to feel a bit sorry for Arsenal fans – even those Fan TV lads.
“It’s been a horrible few weeks for the Gunners, and today could be quite difficult.
“To salute the ridiculous optimism of the five fans who bet on their side to sign Aguero – one of the league’s most potent forces – we’ve paid out early on it happening. Because at least that way some Arsenal fans will have something to celebrate today.”
3/10 Alexis Sanchez to join Man City
3/1 Jack Wilshere to join Newcastle
11/2 Olivier Giroud to join Everton
6/1 Theo Walcott to join Southampton
14/1 Mesut Ozil to join Barcelona or Dortmund
10/3 Julian Draxler
7/2 Jonny Evans
4/1 Raheem Sterling
4/1 Riyad Mahrez
5/1 Sergio Aguero
11/1 Marco Reus
