Sheffield Wednesday’s Fernando Forestieri is consistently being linked with a big transfer move out of the club today, with the Owls seemingly desperate to keep hold of the Argentine - what could happen in the remaining hours of deadline day? What Are The Odds looks at the clubs moving in.
Fulham are the new favourites according to bookmaker Sky Bet, with massively shortened odds of 6/5 (2.20) on the 27-year old to make the switch to Craven Cottage. The Argentine has made three appearances for Wednesday so far this season but after back-to-back play-off misses for the club, so it could be that a fresh challenge with another potential promotion challenger is going to get this deal across the line. A few reports in the past days have covered the rumour including Get West London - so it's definitely 'one to watch' as today unfolds.
Premier League Brighton are also in the running apparently, but with much bigger odds of 7/1 (8.00) and Newcastle United even more unlikely at 25/1 (26.0). What seems apparent from all of this is that it’s either going to be Fulham who make a late deadline day swoop or nothing else will happen regarding the player.
After all, the reports surrounding a move by tonight aren’t all that strong so it could be that this will blow over and Fernando Forestieri will stay put at Sheffield Wednesday and look to help the club go for promotion once again - very short odds of 8/13 (1.62) suggest it's the most likely scenario of them all.
