The nation’s bookies now appear convinced that Chelsea wide man Adama Traore will definitely NOT be joining West Ham this summer.
Reports had suggested the player – who spent last season on loan at Middlesbrough – was bound for the London Stadium but Skybet have offered un-backable odds that he will instead be on his way to France and quote him at 1/10 him joining Lyon.
For the uninitiated that means you have to put a £10 on to win £1 such is the firm’s certainty on his destination. The Irons are now given a 10/1 quote to get the player with Dortmund at 12/1.
Meanwhile the same bookie is offering 5/2 against Aaron Cresswell becoming a Liverpool player next season with the ‘rider’ that the price does not include returning on a loan following a permanent deal elsewhere.
Jack Wilshere gets a 2/1 quote against joining the Hammers and Chris Smalling is priced at 11/4 to join us despite the club telling ClaretandHugh it has no money for defenders.
