Never mind Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United, the most sensational transfer of the summer could see Sergio Aguero swapping life at Manchester City for a place with champions Chelsea.
The Blues had been 10/1 shots to snap up the Argentine, but those odds have been cut into just 2/1 today. With Diego Costa is on the cusp of departing Stamford Bridge, the 29-year-old is believed to be top of Antonio Conte’s transfer wish list..
Aguero netted 33 times in 45 games last term, including a goal against Chelsea at the Bridge – taking his career tally against the West London outfit to 10.
Like Costa, the Buenos Aires’ native has his disciplinary issues – missing seven games through suspension. But that’s believed to be an issue Conte is willing to overlook.
And the odds suggest he’s not the only one, with Arsene Wenger reportedly keen to beat their capital rivals to the punch.
Arsenal are 10/1 dark horses to sign the former Independiente man, as they look to revitalise their strike-force having already signed Alexandre Lacazette this summer.
However, our traders have essentially ruled out any chance of Aguero returning to Atletico Madrid with, you guessed it…Costa heading to the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano. It’s funny how these things go!
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “City fans could be biting their fingernails at the latest news, with odds of Aguero exiting for West London slashed from 10/1 to just 2s.”
