Market reopened with Premier League and Championship clubs vying for Leonardo Ulloa

Wed, 23 August 2017, 10:05

Leicester City’s Premier League winning striker Leonardo Ulloa is facing a few uncertain days, with the transfer window soon closing, the Argentine striker is out of favour under Craig Shakespeare and a move is strongly linked in the coming days. What Are The Odds looks at the possibilities thanks to the odds from Sky Bet bookmaker.

Brighton & Hove Albion are the favourites at the current time with pretty short odds of 2/1 (3.00) and the 31-year old striker wouldn’t needless to say add goalscoring experience to the Seagulls front-line, that has yet to register a first league goal so far in the early knockings of the season. With 18 career goals in the Premier League in 82 appearances (mainly as a substitute) and a likely budget price-tag it could be on that wins approval from Seagulls fans if it gets across the line.

Another club on the look out for an experienced striker is Leeds United and they have money to burn after the £15m sale of Chris Wood to Burnley. Sky Bet back the Yorkshire club with odds of 4/1 (5.00), but whether or not Ulloa fancies a move down to the Championship is another matter. However, it’s easy to see why Leeds might be interested, with the striker netting an impressive 23 times in 50 Championship appearances, and with the club starting well this season, Ulloa would be a very useful addition to help the Elland Road club finally mark a long-awaited Premier League return.

If there’s a Championship club with the appeal of a Premier League club then you’d arguably have to say Aston Villa are right up there so it wouldn’t be so much of a shock to see the club backed at 9/1 (10.0) make a surge in the market.

Swansea City have expressed an interest in the past, but that was many months ago and it would appear that they are only in the market reckoning due to that prior link for Ulloa. However, you can still claim generous odds of 12/1 (13.0) on Paul Clements side pushing forward for a late move, should they not capture their more publicised targets e.g. Wilfried Bony etc.

West Bromwich Albion are also priced at 12/1 (13.0), while Championship side Sunderland are much further back at 16/1 (17.0).
