As the English Premier League season winds down this weekend, sportsbooks are placing odds on where players will go if their teams are relegated. For 17th place Everton, relegation would almost certainly mean a goodbye to Jordan Pickford, the number one goalkeeper in the nation.
On leading crypto sportsbook Cloudbet, Pickford is 1.45 to still be at Everton next season, but if things go badly for the Toffees, Tottenham Hotspur are next in line to land him, at 10.0. Experts say that after Hugo Lloris’ late season injury, Spurs have both the motivation and the money to poach Pickford.
And it’s not just Pickford who may be up for grabs. With Leicester flirting with relegation, star midfielder James Maddison could also be on the move.
Oddsmakers at Cloudbet say Newcastle United are favourites to land the set piece specialist, at 3.25, with Arsenal still in the hunt at 4.5. Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Maddison for monthsl, but their disarray means they’re now more of a longshot for him at 11.0. Odds on him still being at Leicester City next season according to Cloudbet? 40.0.
