Liverpool lead the Premier League race to snap up Yaya
With Pep Guardiola’s arrival at Man City expected to signal the end of Yaya Toure’s career at the Etihad this summer, a host of clubs are racing to grab his signature and Liverpool is the most likely destination should the Ivorian remain in the Premier League.
Should the midfield star choose to remain on English shores however, then a short hop along the M62 to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool leads the way at 5/1.
Former Man City boss Stuart Pearce has called on Arsenal to snap Toure up, but the bookies make such a move as likely as Manchester United signing the free-kick ace at 20/1.
A Ladbrokes spokesman said: “Pep’s arrival all but spells out the end for Yaya Toure at Man City, and if he sticks around in the Premier League, it’s Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp who are leading the chase.”
There’s still plenty for Yaya to deal with this season though, as City chase a Premier League and Champions League trophy to go with their League Cup title.
