Josh King next club odds: West Ham into 3/1 favourites to complete Bournemouth deal, Everton & Burnley in the mix

SEVERAL Premier League clubs have been tipped to sign Bournemouth forward Josh King.

But it's high-flying West Ham who lead the betting market with less than two weeks until the transfer window closes on February 2.


Bookmakers Betfair have installed the London club as 3/1 favourites to secure King's signature.

David Moyes is eager to bolster his attacking options with Youssef En-Nesyri, Boulaye Dia and Gaetan Laborde all on his radar.

He said: "Do I want a top striker? I certainly do, I really do, to help us.

"I think we are in a difficult period. January often hasn’t been that good a month. It was good for us last year, so trying to get the right player is not an easy thing."

The Scotsman has vowed NOT to pay over the odds for a new addition and King, who has entered the final six months of his contract, could be the perfect solution.

Everton are second in the betting at 4/1.

Cenk Tosun and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are Carlo Ancelotti's only striking options with Moise Kean and Ellis Simms both away on loan.

However, interest from the Toffees is though to have cooled in recent days with talks for Bayern Munich's Joshua Zirkzee underway.

There's also been reports that Everton have point-blank refused to meet King's £120,000-a-week wage demands.

Goal-shy Burnley, who have scored a league-low nine goals this season, are 11/2 to secure King's services.

Aston Villa are further back at 9/1 with Brighton offered at 12/1 with Betfair.

Outsiders of the bunch are Manchester United and Arsenal, who are 16/1 and 25/1 respectively.

Promotion hopefuls Bournemouth are supposedly prepared to green-light a deal for the Norwegian forward.

King's contract is set to expire in June 2021, so the Cherries could accept a significantly lower fee to avoid losing him for free next summer.
