Argentine star Nicolas Gaitan has reportedly turned down the chance to join bottom of the table Swansea City in this transfer window, that is despite his club Atletico Madrid agreeing to the deal. Now with his future up in the air before tomorrow’s deadline What Are The Odds looks at the Nicolas Gaitan next club odds market to see who could make a late swoop.
Despite the 29-year old attacking midfielder turning down the Swans initial offer he’s still 4/1 (5.00) with BetVictor to make the move to the Liberty Stadium before tomorrow’s deadline. With formalities between clubs agreed it would seemingly only take a change of mind or contract offer to get the deal over the line, but the Swans are apparently facing strong rival competition for his signature.
Southampton are among the other co-favourites to sign Gaitan, along with West Ham and Everton - all with odds of 4/1 (5.00).
Southampton have cash to burn after the sale of Virgil van Dijk and have already brought in striker Guido Carrillo from Monaco for £19m. The Saints are showing real intent on improving their dismal league form by buying quality - Gaitan would seemingly be interested in joining the recruitment drive, with reports that Quincy Promes is also a target before the window closes.
West Ham are also desperate for experience and quality having been riddled with injury and a move to London could be an appealing one for the Argentine who has only featured six times in La Liga this season, but boats an impressive CV including three Portuguese league championship winner medals.
Sam Allardyce has already signed quality this January with Cenk Tosun and Theo Walcott the big name arrivals at Goodison Park. Nicolas Gaitan would undoubtedly be a welcome addition to the Toffees faithful - but there hasn’t been a lot of noise in the transfer gossip reports about such a move to Merseyside.
If no move to the Premier League materialises it could be a case of a return to South America with either Mexican side Monterrey or Argentine giants Boca Juniors, both backed with odds of 12/1 (13.0).
