Arsenal odds-on favourites to sign Morgan Schneiderlin

Arsenal are odds-on favourites to sign midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin in the transfer window, with Tottenham Hotspur just behind in the betting market.

SkyBet make the Gunners 10/11 to bring the French international to North London this summer, but it's Spurs who are their nearest rivals to do the same thing at a price of 6/5.

Long shots

Manchester United are much further back at 16/1 to land the 24-year-old, with AS Monaco, Napoli and PSG the other teams with a price available - all 33/1.

It's no surprise to see Arsenal at the front of the market, after speculation on Friday night claimed Arsene Wenger had begun preliminary negotiations over the player's signature.

However, the Gunners are yet to reach agreement with Southampton over the fee, with Ronaldo Koeman wanting €22.5million to let the player depart for the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal signings

Wenger has already made some big signings this summer, with Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy joining the Arsenal first team squad. Bacary Sagna left on a free.

The signing of Schneiderlin would add depth to the Gunners' midfield, and he's proved himself in the Premier League - unlike other targets, such as Sami Khedira.

Spurs interest

The interest of Tottenham Hotspur should also come as no surprise, given Mauricio Pochettino's position as manager.

Spurs' new head coach used to be the Saints manager, and worked with Schneiderlin last season as the pair flourished on the south coast.

With Sandro being linked with an exit, the Frenchman would be an ideal replacement at Tottenham Hotspur, and it remains to be seen if they can move ahead of their rivals and bring the player to White Hart Lane.
