England boys backed for summer moves with eye on Russia 2018


Seven England players are 3/1 or shorter for summer moves to improve their chances of making Gareth Southgate’s 2018 World Cup squad.

It’s odds-on that Arsenal lose Kieran Gibbs (1/2), Jack Wilshere (4/6) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (5/6).

Meanwhile Theo Walcott is just 6/4 for a transfer, with West Ham United reportedly interested in the winger.

Arsenal aren’t alone in facing an English exodus however.

Manchester United could be about to allow both Chris Smalling (2/1) and Phil Jones (2/1) to seek pastures new in an attempt to make England’s 23-man squad next year in Russia.

And Daniel Sturridge is 3/1 to leave Liverpool this summer.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Plenty of huge names have an equally huge decision to make over the next few weeks, and these odds suggest we could see a whole host of tactical transfers from fringe players.”
