Arsenal & Man City: Bookies cut odds on Riyad Mahrez & Sokratis Papastathopoulos moves

Riyad Mahrez & Sokratis Papastathopoulos on the move

Two players who could be set to switch clubs this season are Riyad Mahrez and Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

Mahrez has long been tipped to leave Leicester City. Indeed, it’s been impressive that the Foxes have been able to hold onto Mahrez for this long following their shock Premier League title three years ago.

Back in January Manchester City tried and failed to sign Mahrez from the King Power Stadium.

Switching focus to Germany, another player poised to move clubs this summer is Greek defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

Sokratis has been rumoured to be looking for a way out of Borussia Dortmund. He’s been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent times.

Arsenal and Man City could be about to make their first moves of the summer transfer window, according to Ladbrokes.

The bookies rate Riyad Mahrez and Sokratis Papastathopoulos’ chances of moving to Manchester and North London at 1/6 respectively, while a whole host of blockbuster moves have also been priced up this morning.

Jack Grealish is now just 5/2 for a shock summer move to Man United, while 4/1 says Andre Silva swaps AC Milan for Wolves.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Liverpool have got the ball rolling with a shock move for Fabinho and the odds suggest that’ll be the first of a whole host of huge summer transfers.”
