Giroud 2/7 to swap Arsenal for Chelsea, Batshuayi odds-on for Dortmund
Richard Marsh | 30 January 2018
Deadline day is fast approaching
Olivier Giroud is odds-on at 2/7 to depart the Emirates Stadium to sign for Chelsea as transfer deadline day looms.
Meanwhile, Michy Batshuayi is 8/13 with the firm to join Borussia Dortmund from the west London club.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s proposed move from BvB to Arsenal hinges on the Giroud and Batshuayi deals going ahead.
Coral’s John Hill said: “Olivier Giroud is long odds-on to switch London clubs to Chelsea, while Michy Batshuayi is the favourite to be Aubameyang’s replacement at Dortmund.
He added: “The betting suggests there is a strong possibility that Arsenal will tie up a deal for Jonny Evans before the January transfer window closes tomorrow where it looks like they are the only club in the hunt for the Northern Ireland international now.”
Elsewhere, Jonny Evans is 11/8 to join the Gunners, with no other side shorter than 20/1.

11/8 Arsenal, 20/1 Chelsea, Everton, Manchester City, West Ham
**Olivier Giroud’s next club
