Odds on two top striker targets joining West Ham

IheanachoBookmaker Sky Bet is making West Ham the red hot odds on favourite to sign Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho but Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi is a less fancied move by the Bookies making the Hammers only the fourth favourites to make the move to East London behind Monaco, Everton and Newcastle.

Sky Bet make West Ham the 1/4 odds on favourite with Hoffenheim and Everton joint second favourites at 8/1 West Brom at 12/1 Dortmund at 14/1 Spurs and Arsenal at 16/1 while Southampton is 20/1

Chelsea-striker-Michy-Batshuayi-614216Perhaps more telling is Sky are giving odds of 10/1 for Iheanacho to stay at Manchester City.

Monaco are the 7/2 favourites to sign Batshuayi from Chelsea with Newcastle a surprising 9/2 second favourite. Everton are rated 6/1 while West Ham are considered more outsiders being offered at a price of 11/1 for them to land the Chelsea striker.

Despite the betting markets excitement, we understand there has been little movement on either striker signing on the dotted line this week.

  1. We are also being linked with Max Kruse at £10.4m who is at Werder Bremen, remember seeing him play for Germany looked pretty decent, had a look on youtube where they all look like world beaters, he is no exception although they did say he had a ligament injury last season and is 29 but still scored 15 and had 7 assists so who knows.

  2. I hope Slaven is being consulted this time. In January we signed Snodgrass for £10m and nearly wasted £13m on Hogan. Last summer Sullivan lumbered us with Zaza, Tore, Calleri, Fegoulli, Nordveit, Masuaku, Arbeloa and Fernandes. Only one was worth it. Thankfully some were only loan deals.

    • at least 3 of those were slaven’s picks. amazes me what stories people settle on to satisfy a false narrative.

  3. I just read an article (so it must be true…) that ESPN have said that Iheanacho will sign for us but there is a hold up due to a legal dispute with one of his former agents, Sean are you aware of any of this ?
