Tottenham Hotspur made 6/1 second favourites to sign Marco Verratti

Bookmakers Bet Victor have made Tottenham Hotspur second favourites to sign Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti in January.

Only Chelsea (2/1) are at shorter odds than Spurs, who are tied with Spanish giants Real Madrid at 6/1, having been linked to the Italian by the Daily Mail this week.

Interestingly, there has been no official mention anywhere of Tottenham’s interest in the diminutive playmaker, although the Daily Mirror reported earlier this month that PSG have taken a liking to White Hart Lane star Dele All – and a swap deal could perhaps be on the cards.

There would be little reason for Spurs to target Verratti otherwise, with Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama, Mousa Dembele, Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks and Alli all capable of playing in the 24-year-old’s position.

And having signed a new five-year deal earlier this year, it would appear that Verratti is not going anywhere in a hurry.
