There’s a wild rumour every summer about a big name player moving to Liverpool and it seems the hot topic on Merseyside this year is that Arsenal striker Thierry Henry could be on his way to Anfield.
Henry has made it public recently that he is unhappy at Arsenal and their constant underachievement of recent seasons. The French striker has also revealed in the past that if he were to play for any other Premiership club besides Arsenal, it would be Liverpool. However he also reassured Arsenal fans that this would never happen.
Murmurings on Merseyside over the rumours, which have been circulating for several weeks now, suggest Henry could be set for an extraordinary one year loan deal at Anfield, whilst Reds striker Djibril Cisse is being rumoured to be heading in the direction of the Emirates Stadium. Maybe someone should be reminded that April Fool’s Day was a couple of months ago?
Today William Hill added fuel to fire when they cut the odds of Henry moving to Liverpool this summer from 10/1 to just 3/1 amid a lot of bets being placed on the transfer over the last two days.
Spokesman Graham Sharpe revealed, “After taking increasingly more calls and bets – mainly from the Liverpool area – we have shortened the odds significantly just in case there is something to the story, which has yet to emerge into the public domain.”
Our betting tip of the day – don’t bet on it!
