Philippe Coutinho cut to 6-4 to join Barcelona
Philippe Coutinho has been cut into 6-4 (from 3-1) by leading bookmaker Coral to join Barcelona this morning following a flurry of bets for the Brazilian to make the move to the Catalan club, while he is now out to 1-2 (from 1-5) to remain at Anfield.
Arsenal are 2-1 (from 5-2) to secure the services of Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar before the window shuts next week, while defending champions Chelsea are also prominent in the betting at 2-1 to capture Riyad Mahrez from Leicester.
“The money has returned again for Coutinho joining Barcelona which may suggest a fourth bid could be imminent from the Catalan club for the Brazilian,” said Coral’s John Hill.
“We’ve seen interesting money for Arsenal moving for Thomas Lemar before the window shuts, while the odds suggest Riyad Mahrez could still make a move to Chelsea as the Blues are the prominent in the betting to sign the Algerian,” added Hill.
