David Raya Next Club Odds: Spurs And Man Utd In Fight To Sign Brentford Keeper
© PA

Brentford goalkeeper David Raya is attracting interest from some of Europe’s top clubs after producing a string of impressive performances for the Bees.

UK betting sites have installed Tottenham as the favourites to sign the Spain international if he ends up leaving the club this summer.

However, Spurs could face competition from Man Utd and Chelsea, who recently offloaded Eduoard Mendy to the Saudi Pro League.

Raya is just 27 years of age, and he is approaching the peak of his powers after a four-year stint with Brentford, so he could prove to be a compelling replacement for Lloris.

He made several smart saves during Brentford’s 3-1 victory over Tottenham in May, and that performance may have left an impression on the Spurs hierarchy.

Tottenham are now the 2/1 favourites with UK bookmakers to sign him this summer, but Brentford will fight to hold onto their star stopper.

Will David Raya Make A Move To Tottenham? Next Club Odds Analysis 

Spurs have been heavily linked with signing Raya as a long-term replacement for 36-year-old captain Hugo Lloris.

France’s most capped player retired from international duty in January, a fortnight after his team lost to Argentina on penalties in the World Cup final in December.

He may hang up his gloves for good soon, but he has been tipped to enjoy one last adventure before he heads off into the sunset.

A move to PSG has been mooted, while some news outlets have suggested that Inter Milan will try to bring him to Italy this summer.

The Magpies have already splashed out on a midfielder this summer, bringing in Italian maestro Sandro Tonali from AC Milan.

However, football betting sites suggest they wish to bolster that area of the pitch as they prepare for their first Champions League campaign since the 2002/03 season.

They are the 2/1 favourites to sign McTominay if he ends up leaving Man Utd before the transfer window slams shut.

Is David Raya Bound For Man Utd? A Closer Look At The Next Club Odds 

The Red Devils are the 5/2 second favourites to sign Raya after David De Gea left the club earlier this month.

The Spanish stopper had been United’s No. 1 for 12 years and he made 545 appearances, but he began to look a little shaky in recent months.

Raya has already replaced De Gea in the Spain squad, and he could take his compatriot’s jersey at Man Utd too.

However, it is worth noting that Man Utd are reportedly close to signing Andre Onana from Inter Milan and that may make a move for Raya unlikely.

David Raya's Transfer Saga: Chelsea's Position Revealed 

Chelsea are also on the hunt for a new goalkeeper after Mendy joined Al-Ahli for a reported fee of £16m.

Kepa Arizabalaga displaced Mendy as the Blue’s first-choice keeper under Graham Potter last term, but he has never looked particularly convincing in a Chelsea shirt.

New boss Mauricio Pochettino will be keen to bring in a new goalie to provide competition for Kepa, and Raya could fit the bill.

Mauricio Pochettino

They are both members of the same Spain squad, and they are of a similar age, but Raya looked more composed than his international teammate last season.

The Blues have eased their Financial Fair Play concerns by selling Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Kalidou Koulibaly and Ruben Loftus-Cheek this summer.

That should give Pochettino room to manoeuvre in the transfer market, and the former Spurs boss could scupper their plans to sign Raya.

Chelsea are the 4/1 third favourites with Parimatch to snap him up, and the prospect of remaining in West London may appeal to the Brentford star.

Exploring The Odds: David Raya's Next Club And Aston Villa's Role 

Emiliano Martinez has been linked with a move away from Villa Park this summer after helping Argentina win the World Cup in December.

If he ends up moving, Unai Emery will need to bring in a high-quality replacement in order to maintain the team’s upward curve.

There is a growing Spanish contingent at Aston Villa, who have signed Pau Torres and Alex Moreno since Emery took the reins, and Raya may like to join the party.

They are 25/1 to sign him with BetVictor, but any move would be dependent on Martinez leaving.

David Raya's Future: Assessing The Next Club Odds And Potential Moves 

La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona are both 50/1 long shots with betting apps, which may appeal to some punters.

Thibaut Courtois is 31 years old and he appears to have the No. 1 position at Real Madrid nailed-down, but Raya could keep him on his toes.

Barcelona counterpart Marc-Andre ter Stegen is the same age, and the Blaugrana do not appear to be on the hunt for a replacement, but anything can happen in the summer transfer market.
