Chelsea head Michail Antonio next club tips
FootyOn give Michail Antonio next club tips, despite the West Ham United right-sided player being under contract for another five years.
Although he misses the rest of this season with a hamstring problem, tabloid gossip columns continue to link Hammers top scorer Antonio with a summer move away.
One club, in particular, have been consistently mentioned in such reports.
Despite a disappointing second campaign under Slaven Bilic and first at the Olympic Stadium, West Ham sources insist their player is going nowhere.
Speculation is persistent, however, so that suggest there is something in it.
We assess BetVictor’s market and give Michail Antonio next club tips…
Is Antonio Conte after Michail Antonio?
Chelsea head the betting on the 27-year-old’s future, and his versatility would be an asset at Stamford Bridge.
Antonio, who has played all down the right-hand side for the Hammers, looks tailor-made for Blues boss Antonio Conte’s favoured 3-4-3 setup.
Victor Moses has made the right wing back position his own at Chelsea this season, but that hasn’t stopped the speculation about Antonio.
As 3/1 favourites to sign him before the transfer window closes and because of the strong speculation, the Blues look a sound investment.
Are there alternatives?
The betting doesn’t make Chelsea the strongest favourites, though.
Manchester United are Antonio’s second-most likely destination, according to it at 4/1.
Wide options Ashley Young, Antonio Valencia and Juan Mata are all entering the final year of their Old Trafford contracts.
Valencia is a player like Antonio who has been deployed at full back as well as on the flank.
Tottenham are 5/1 chances to snap Antonio up, as the gossip columns frequently mention their wing backs leaving White Hart Lane.
Right-sided pair Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier are linked with Manchester City and Everton respectively.
