Daily Transfer Odds Round-up

Here is our daily round-up of the latest transfer rumours and some of the biggest events making the headlines which might be of interest to punters.

Miralem Pjanic

Chelsea are the favourites to sign Pjanic following a cryptic tweet from the Italian club's former CEO.

The playmaker was not expected to leave the Serie A champions this summer but a tweet from Luciano Moggi, featuring the hashtags #Pjanic and #Chelsea, has fuelled speculation that the 28-year-old Bosnian is on his way to Stamford Bridge if Chelsea appoint Maurizio Sarri as head coach.

Chelsea have been cut to 2/1 to sign Pjanic and lead the way ahead of Barcelona (11/2), Manchester United (7/1), Liverpool (8/1) and Arsenal (12/1).

Ruben Loftus-Cheek

The midfielder's determination to play regular first-team football next season could see him leave Chelsea.

The 22-year-old England international has made only a handful of Premier League starts for Chelsea since making his debut in 2014 and spent last season on loan at Crystal Palace.

While at Selhurst Park, Loftus-Cheek started 21 of his 24 top-flight appearances - before injury took its toll - and earned his first England call-up in November before being named in the World Cup squad.

Loftus-Cheek said: "That's the key for me next season regarding where I end up: I want to play.

"I want to play as much as I can. And even this past season I didn't play as much as I would have liked, because of the injuries and stuff, so I still feel I need a proper season of playing, wherever it is.

"I do understand Chelsea are a big club and there is always pressure on managers to win games and trophies. So I understand they might not be willing to take a chance on someone at a bigger club."

Loftus-Cheek is 4/1 to return to Palace and the same odds for a move to Liverpool, with Everton (6/1), Arsenal (13/2) and Tottenham (10/1) other possible destinations.

Luka Modric

Tottenham have been linked with a sensational swoop to bring their former midfielder back to north London.

Modric has just won the Champions League for a third time with Real Madrid and is now on World Cup duty with Croatia.

Reports in Spain suggest Tottenham are keen to bring the midfielder back to the Premier League, where he was such a success in his first spell with Spurs.

A new challenge could appeal to 32-year-old Modric and Real Madrid could be persuaded to sell, with rumours they have lined up Thiago Alcantara as a replacement.

The odds on Tottenham signing Modric have been cut to 4/1 while the player can also be backed to join Chelsea (10/1), Barcelona (12/1), Juventus (16/1) or Dinamo Zagreb (25/1).

Ante Rebic

Modric's international team-mate Rebic is also featuring in transfer speculation regarding a move to England.

The Eintracht Frankfurt striker has impressed in the Bundesliga and is believed to have attracted interest from several Premier League clubs, with Rebic using the World Cup to showcase his talents.

Tottenham are expected to strengthen their attacking options this summer and are the favourites to sign Rebic at 7/2.

Liverpool are 6/1 to beat their top-flight rivals while David Wagner's Huddersfield are 15/2 to return to the German transfer market to bring in a star striker.
