Silly Season: 2018 Summer Transfer News, Odds and Tips

The 2018 summer transfer window is still open and there’s lots of confirmed moves, lots of rumoured moves and lots of fake news. For many football fans, this time is almost as exciting as the actual start of the season. This is where your more adventurous football betting strategies begin… football betting markets aren’t just about putting money on match results, but even wagering on who you think is going where – and even for how much. This is also perfect if you want to make an early bet on who will win the season… simply based on the new and improved team sheets.

We’re going to look at each club: who’s coming and who’d going. We’ll check out all the spending and look to see how that will affect the team for this coming season. There’s still plenty of time yet though… so literally anything could happen.

Arsenal

Along with a new manager comes a renewed lease of life. This season will be very interesting for the Gunners and its fans as there will be numerous changes both back and front of house. Some may see this as being long overdue.

With the arrival of Unai Emery, he has brought in five players already, and has vowed to solidify his defence. His main focus has been in the goal, defence and defensive midfield. He has stated that he believes his 2018/2019 squad to be complete and that there will probably be no further changes as it stands. However, should a big player and a big opportunity present itself, there is still room to manoeuvre.

Bournemouth

Bournemouth seem to be taking their time when it comes to transfers and definitely aren’t keeping up with other Premier League teams in terms of spending. However, they may just be biding their time for now. It seems highly likely that their one current signing will be joined by others. In particular, the team seems to be scoping out new left backers, with possibilities being: Diego Rico from Leganes; Kieran Tiernay from Celtic and Diego Laxalt from Genoa. These are just rumours and possibilities at the moment – so watch this space for more updates.

Brighton

Brighton definitely looks like it’s been busy when it comes to summer transfers. The club has done some great business already and the doors are still wide open. The managers and board are clearly looking to add strength and experience to the team with the addition of Nigeria’s Leon Balogun. They are also adding youth and promise with Brazilian Bernardo. There’s also high hopes for Malian Yves Bissouma and if they manage to get Isaac Hayden from Newcastle, that would be a great coup.

Burnley

So far it’s been a very quiet transfer window for Burnley, with Sean Dyche having signed absolutely nobody yet. However, he’s made no secret of the fact that he is interested in Sam Clucas, from Swansea. He has previously attempted to buy this player before he went to Swansea, so let’s see how it goes this time! They may not have got anyone in yet, but they have released a few players, so will probably want to make a purchase or two before close of play on August 9.

Cardiff City

Cardiff has made a few pretty decent signings so far and have been raiding four Championships rivals to strengthen their side in the Premier League. They’ve managed to plunder Bobby Reid, a striker from Bristol City – a great little signing. It also looks as though they might be after Liverpool’s midfielder, Marko Krujic, who was on loan last season, but is sought after for a more permanent placement. It also looks as though they might be looking to sign up West Brom’s Nick Ames, which could be an interesting addition.

Chelsea

Here’s one of the top teams… but it looks as though they haven’t done much so far in terms of transfers. They had strengthened their midfield with a little quality from Brazilian Jorginho, although to get the midfield Sarri wants, it may take a bit more than that… so expect to see a couple of very busy weeks before the window closes.

It looks as though the side are also targeting the CSKA Moscow midfielder, Aleksandr Golovin, as well as Daniele Rugani, the Juventus defender. With the threat of Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois leaving, they definitely need to get something going.

Crystal Palace

Roy Hodgson has declared that he doesn’t want to spend too much this transfer window. However, it is clear that there needs to be some spending to improve on the team they already have – particularly centre-forward. It appears that the club are keen to keep hold of Ruben Loftus-Cheek from Chelsea this season… but that every much depends on the plans of Maurizio Sarri.  It looks like they may be set to lose a few players as well – with interest shown in Wilfried Zaha, and Bakary Sako rejecting a new contract.

Hodgson might want to be frugal, but he needs to loosen the purse strings a little if he wants to do anything this season.

Everton

A very quiet transfer window so far for Everton. In fact, Marco Silva still hasn’t made a signing as Everton Manager. He desperately needs to improve this squad, so he needs to get moving and make something happen. He has registered interest in a few left back players, such as Kieran Tierney and Lucas Digne. Lucas Digne’s Barcelona teammate, Yerry Mina is one of their defense targets. They are also seeking out an attacking midfielder. This s a team that wants to streamline its team, but ensure quality as well.

Fulham

Fulham definitely showed they are playing serious this season with their £30 million double whammy from Nice. However, if they are serious about competing, then this needs to be just the beginning. More than anything, it is clear that Fulham is in dire need of a decent striker, now that their on-loan striker, Alexsander Mitrovic has returned to Newcastle. He played a big role in the club’s promotion, so this is a gap that needs filling. There is hope that the player will return, but that has yet to be decided or confirmed.

Huddersfield Town

Huddersfield really struggled to score last season and it’s for this very reason that David Wagner has signed Monaco’s Adama Diakhaby for a sum of around £8 million. This wasn’t the obvious goal scoring choice as this player scored only three goals in thirty appearances last season. However, it is clear that Wagner sees something in him that maybe we are missing.

As well as this he has signed the Egyptian winner Ramadan Sobhi, from Stoke in his collection of six new signings – worth, in all, around £30 million. Amongst these there is Terence Kongolo, whose £17.5 million move from the Monaco squad makes him Huddersfield’s biggest signing to date.

Leicester City

Leicester City lost a touch of creativity when Riyad Mahrez departed. However, they seem to have counter acted this partly by bringing in James Maddison. They also look to be strengthening the defence with the additions of Ricardo Pereira and Jonny Evans. Furthermore, it‘s been confirmed that Liverpool’s goalkeeper, Danny Ward, has also joined the club. Furthermore, Lazio’s left back, Jordan Lukaku also looks as though he might too join the club. On top of this, Leicester will need to be looking for someone to play wide and fill the gap that was left by Mahrez. There are a few players who have been linked to a move, such as Rachid Ghezzal from Monaco as well as a renewed interest in Jack Grealish.

Liverpool

No one can deny that Liverpool had a great season last season. The top three strikers, Salah, Mane and Firminho worked incredibly. However, there seemed to be one or two issues in the midfield and at the back that needed tightening up. Klopp managed to get through to the Champions League final last season, and he’s going to try to get that one step further this time.

On the whole, it was defensive errors that led to the defeat, so tightening up here and in the midfield is a necessity. He’s looking to solve this by bringing in Naby Keita, Shaqiri and the Brazilian Goalie Alisson.

Manchester City

Another of the big players and big spenders is looking to improve the team for next season. Despite having a phenomenal season, and winning the league by a country mile, the performance in the Champions League proved there were still improvements necessary. Pep Guardiola did try for Jorginho, but missed out to Chelsea. However, he did manage to land Mahrez from Leicester.

Whether Pep will try to get someone else instead of Jorginho is debatable. He already has Ilkay Gundogen and Fernandinho fighting for a spot, but it’s not out of the realms of possibility. This will be an interesting one.

Manchester United

So, with Mourinho looking to improve Man U’s showing from last season, we can expect some decent movements here. He firstly looks ready to improve and upgrade his full backs. This is where Diogo Dalot comes in. Although he’s not really been put to the test, Mourinho seems to be satisfied. Dalot is apparently set to be the understudy of Valencia on the right. This then frees up Luke Shaw to challenge Ashley Young on the left.

Also, he may choose to get stronger strikers, as his from can be a little temperamental – although Lukaku did have a good World Cup. We could therefore see some signings up front. He never made a move for Mahrez, which was slightly puzzling – but he may have other plans we’re not yet aware of.

Newcastle United

Well, Rafa came in insisting on spending money to improve his team – he wanted to lay out around £45 million for improvements, but has now been told that if he wants to buy, then he’s got to sell. As goal scoring is his priority he’s first and foremost looking for a striker. However, if he wants to get his hands on Salomon Rondon, then he’ll need to sell Aleksandr Mitrovic to get the funds. Rafa has so far managed to invest £4.5 million in goalkeeper Martin Dubravka. He’s also secured Chelsea’s Kenedy on loan as well as Ki Sung-yeung free from Swansea. It looks like it’s all about maneuvering for Benitez… he needs to sell in order to buy – this could be interesting.

Southampton

This has been a very busy time for Southampton as they narrowly escaped relegation. The team is determined not to face that again so is making some big additions to its team. They’ve nabbed Angus Gunn from Man City, who they expect to take top spot from Alex McCarthy. They are tightening up the defence with the addition of Jannik Vestergaard; they are also trying to bring some well-needed creativity with the addition of Mohamed Elyounoussi.

With lots of additions and very few leaving, Southampton is trying to move up. It will be very exciting to see if they have anything else in store – and how this affects the squad this season.

Tottenham

It was tense times at Tottenham when Real Madrid was after Pochettino. However, he ignored the huge Spanish side and set his sights firmly on the future of the London club. Tottenham had a great season last year and so far it seems to want to stick with what it knows, as there have been no secured transfers in yet.

However, it looks like changes will be set in motion soon when the club says goodbye to Toby Alderweireld. Mousa Dembele and Danny Rose. To strengthen its position, the club seems to want to target Wilmar Barrios, Jack Grealish, Antony Martial and Wilfried Zaha. Action might be slow now, but watch this space…

We will see the arrival of Adam Masina who looks set to be the first choice left back and this could be very important to the plans of the clubs.

West Ham

West Ham had a very disappointing season previously and will very much be looking to improve on that this year. The team have brought in Pellegrini and he now has to try and restructure and recreate the squad. It looks like he’s going to do that. They have already broken their transfer record when they signed up Felipe Anderson and have taken a chance on Jack Wilshere.

With seven additions to the club this season and four departures, it’ll be interesting to see what the new manager, new structure and new team can do.

Wolves

Wolves look to be setting the transfer market alight with the number of signings they have. They have managed to land top Portuguese goalkeeper Patricio for free as well as Mexican star player Raul Jiminez on loan from Benfica.

On top of the numerous signings made, the team has also been linked with Man City’s Oleksandr Zinchenko, although it is possible this will be sidelined as they make a move for Inter Milan’s Joao Mario.
