Bookies Verdict: 25 Goal Striker More Likely To Join Chelsea Than Arsenal

After a failed attempt to sign Jamie Vardy, Arsenal has turned their attention to other strikers who may be available. Several names have come up and one of the top names in the list of many and the Arsenal scouts is of Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgian forward scored 25 goals for Everton last season and the Arsenal has joined the chase for the player. However having previous ties with Chelsea the Blues are clear favorite to sign the striker, as per the bookies. Betstars has declared odds of Lukaku joining Chelsea and Arsenal at 12/5 and 11/4 respectively.

Arsenal will be able to offer Lukaku something that Chelsea will not. Champions League football next season. The Blues will not be participating in any European competition next season and while that is considered a hindrance the people seem to think that Chelsea has more probability to sign him than Arsenal. Maybe the factor is the willingness to meet Everton’s asking price.
