Spurs backed to land duo
Tottenham have been heavily backed in Sky Bet’s Transfer Specials to sign both Willian and Erik Lamela with Gareth Bale now 1/7 to leave the club.
Betting has been suspended on Willian's next club after money continued to come at odds as short as 1/10 for Spurs to see off competition from Liverpool for the Anzhi forward’s services.
The north London outfit have also been cut to 1/3 to sign Argentinian winger Lamela from Roma, with both players thought to command fees around £30m.
The developments come amid Bale's odds on leaving Spurs being cut further, with the Welshman now 4/1 not to move before the close of the transfer window.
Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "Having seen Spurs and Liverpool see-saw between favourites on Monday, the money has all been for the Brazilian to head to north London, with punters still backing the move to happen at odds as short as 1/10
"Lamela has also been well backed to join, with both deals seemingly dependent on Bale leaving, which is looking more likely by the day."
