Man City 11/4 to bring in Boubakary Soumare

City also odds-on to sign Jonny Evans

Manchester City could be closing in on a move for Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare this month, according to the latest Coral odds.

Soumare has caught the eye in a struggling Lille side this term. He’s now 11/4 to join the Premier League leaders before the transfer window closes.

“Our odds suggest that a move is likely and whilst negotiations may drag on there’s a big chance that Manchester City will be able to complete the move this window,” said Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead.

City are also huge favourites to sign West Bromwich Albion’s Jonny Evans. The centre-back has been linked with Arsenal but City are 1/4 to seal his signature.

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred and Barcelona’s Samuel Umtiti are less likely arrivals at 7/2 and 8/1 respectively.

“The Evans deal has been on the table for a while now and it’s been odds on in our betting for over a week. It could prove to be a matter of when, not if,” added Aitkenhead.
