Explain please? Does that mean likely or not likely?

In actual reality, it means very little. It's a very shallow, changeable market. Also, as someone who used to work for a bookies, betting on future transfers is generally a mug's game and a license to print money for the bookie.

Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

I imagine there's a few who get carried away with who theor club could sign and convince themselves that he's coming, even if there's only the smallest amount of circumstantial evidence.

We all certainly do that on here!

Not for professional gamblers. For them, it's a good living.

And when even a solitary person does that the odds change to reflect that.

Odds show what people are betting on, not what the bookies personally think will happen. (Except when something first comes to market, then it's what the bookies think)

If I were running a betting shop, I'd look at both, otherwise it'd be too easy to swing the odds towards an unlikely outcome with a flurry of small bets, then in the last minute put a massive one on the likelier one.

This is what's so awful about those twitter accounts with a few thousand followers who pretend to be ITK.

Lets hope so, as I cant really see us getting anyone much better than him this window with his attributes.

This.

Really can't see anyone who suits what Koeman wants more than this guy, almost always bags 15-20 a season too.

He'd be back in London getting treatment on a groin injury if any move was on the cards.

BBC Sport putting 2 + 2 together and coming up with 5

Everton’s hopes of signing Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud have been boosted by Borussia Dortmund’s claim that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will not be sold this summer, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The report adds that Giroud had hoped to replace Aubameyang at Dortmund after being pushed down the Arsenal pecking order by Alexandre Lacazette. But Dortmund’s declaration that Aubameyang, who was on the list of strikers Chelsea are considering to replace Diego Costa, will not be sold casts doubt over the prospect of the German club making a bid for Giroud.

Arsenal will demand around £20 million for Giroud and Everton believe they are second on the list of the Frenchman’s preferred destinations.
