Odds slashed on Arsenal snapping up Man City’s goalscoring great
He may be one of Manchester City’s most beloved players of all time, but Sergio Aguero could soon find his name sung by the fans of a current Premier League rival – Arsenal.
The 28-year-old was benched for the Citizens’ recent clashes with Barcelona and Manchester United, and with Arsene Wenger reportedly ready to swoop for the Argentine, his odds of a move to the Emirates have been knocked down from 16/1 to 6/1.
With Olivier Giroud now six games without a goal for the Gunners, and Lucas Perez yet to shine, Wenger could well be willing to dish out the big bucks to secure the services of a player who has netted an astonishing 107 goals in 157 Premier League games.
However, the Gunners could face competition for his signature from fellow London big boys Chelsea (10/1) and Tottenham (16/1), while Liverpool are also priced at 16s.
Real Madrid lead the betting overall at 7/2, but they could be pushed into second spot by Arsene Wenger and co. before long.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “Arsenal are gunning for the Argentine ace, and the bookies reckon Aguero could leave City fans seeing red by heading to a Premier League rival.”
For now, the Gunners’ current strike force need to prove their worth to Wenger at Sunderland on Saturday.
It’s 2/5 for an Arsenal win at the Stadium of Light, while 11/10 says Giroud ends his wait for a goal.
