If Arsenal fans thought the idea of Alexis Sanchez signing for Chelsea was bad enough to take, they might want to stop reading now.
That’s because we now have a new second-favourite in the market to sign the Chilean… Tottenham Hotspur.
Yep, you read that right.
Sanchez has reportedly stated he’s keen on staying in London, leaving Gooners wondering whether that means he’ll extend his contract at the Emirates or move to Premier League leaders Chelsea. It seemed as though everyone had forgotten about another club in the capital currently on the up.
The Blues are still leading the race to sign the 28-year-old at 2/1. But recent comments from the former Barcelona man have meant our traders have had to slash odds on a move to White Hart Lane from 10/1 to just 3/1.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Sanchez wants a capital city club with a winning mentality and now that Spurs are back in the title race, the odds of a sensational switch across the North London divide are shortening by the minute. Should Spurs make up further ground on Chelsea while Arsenal flounder outside of the top four, they could soon become favourites for the Chilean’s signature.”
