Renato Sanches odds intriguing following Premier League bow
FootyOn look at Renato Sanches odds in the Premier League Young Player of the Year betting after this prodigious Portuguese talent makes his Swansea City debut.
Renato Sanches is a 33/1 first-show with BetVictor in their 2017/18 Premier League Young Player of the Year betting following his bow in Swansea’s 1-0 home defeat to Newcastle United.
Swans head coach Paul Clement pulled off a major coup when landing the 20-year-old on loan from former club Bayern Munich.
Before succeeding Bob Bradley in the Liberty Stadium dugout, Clement was assistant to Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti and used those connections to great effect in luring Sanches to South Wales.
Although he struggled to make an impact in Munich after helping Portugal to win Euro 2016 last summer, Sanches has been widely tipped for Premier League stardom this term.
Swansea make smart signing
While early season relegation rivals West Ham United missed out on compatriot William Carvalho and Leicester City cannot register deadline day capture Adrien Silva until January because of paperwork problems, Swansea did smart late transfer window business.
Besides loaning in Sanches, Clement completed the re-signing of Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Bony – a prolific goalscorer during his first Swans spell.
Sanches was one of three Euro 2016 winners to join a British club this summer, with veteran defender Bruno Alves’ transfer to Glasgow Rangers also happening alongside Adrien Silva.
Clement started with Sanches on the right-hand side of a midfield diamond against Newcastle, but then deployed him further forward which afforded greater freedom to take opposition players on.
It looks as though it will take a little time for him to reprise the familiar box-to-box role in which Sanches flourished at the Euros where he was named Young Player of the Tournament, however, after he gave away possession 14 times in the first 28 minutes of his Premier League career.
Premier League Young Player of the Year betting competitive
In a market headed by Tottenham star Dele Alli (7/2 with Paddy Power) and talents from the Manchester clubs, those 33/1 Renato Sanches odds look overpriced based on what he’s already achieved.
Three market principals in the 2017/18 Premier League Young Player of the Year betting turn out for Manchester City.
Gabriel Jesus (16/5) has made a real impact at the Etihad Stadium since joining up with Pep Guardiola’s squad in January, netting 10 goals in 15 games across all competitions.
Leroy Sane (10/1) and Raheem Sterling (18/1) are also part of Man City’s attacking ensemble, while ball-playing defender John Stones is the same price as Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford (best-price 20/1 with BetVictor).
Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford (5/1) completes the main Premier League Young Player of the Year betting contenders, ahead of Old Trafford teammates Anthony Martial and Eric Bailly (both 25/1).
