Harvey Barnes Next Club Odds: Newcastle Lead The Chase For The Leicester Winger
Harvey Barnes is all but certain to leave Leicester this summer after the Foxes were relegated from the Premier League.
The best betting sites are offering odds on his next destination, and Newcastle lead several Premier League rivals in the race for his signature.
Barnes is one of the few Leicester players to emerge with his reputation largely intact following a dismal season for the Midlands club.
The English winger, who was capped for the Three Lions back in 2020, fired in 13 goals and provided three assists for the Foxes over the course of the campaign.
He was Leicester’s top scorer, despite operating as a winger, and he also impressed with his pace, dynamism and quality in possession.
Teammate James Maddison has already sealed a move to Spurs, and Barnes is now poised to follow in his footsteps by joining a high-profile Premier League club,
We have provided updated odds below and discussed the leading contenders to sign Barnes in the summer transfer window.
Betting on Harvey Barnes' Future: Newcastle Tops the Charts
In the Newcastle transfer odds, The Magpies are now priced at just 1/20 to sign Barnes from Leicester before the transfer window closes.
You could have grabbed 5/1 last month on him moving to St. James’ Park, but the odds have been progressively shortening over the past couple of weeks.
Newcastle are not short on attacking talent, with Anthony Gordon, Miguel Almiron, Allan Saint-Maximin, Jacob Murphy and Ryan Fraser all vying for starting berths.
Manager Eddie Howe has also deployed Alexander Isak as a winger, with Callum Wilson down the middle, so he has plenty of options at his disposal.
However, the Magpies are looking forward to a Champions League campaign, and they are keen to improve their attacking options.
Recent reports suggest that they are planning to sell Saint-Maximin to fund a bid for Barnes, and they are the clear frontrunners to capture his signature.
However, it is not a done deal yet, and you can find a great deal of value on rival Premier League clubs if you expect one of them to gazump Newcastle.
Next Club Speculations: West Ham's Odds To Sign Harvey Barnes
West Ham manager David Moyes recently revealed that he will target homegrown players this summer.
The Hammers are on the brink of selling captain Declan Rice to Arsenal for a nine-figure sum, so he will have a large transfer budget.
Shoring up the midfield will be West Ham’s main priority, with the likes of James Ward-Prowse and Denis Zakaria targeted.
However, they could also do with more pace and dynamism down the left flank, and Barnes could provide useful competition for Said Benrahma.
The Hammers are 12/1 second favourites to sign him, which may be an interesting alternative if Newcastle’s long-touted bid does not materialise.
The Race For Harvey Barnes: Aston Villa's Odds As His Next Club
Aston Villa emerged as the 7/4 favourites to sign Barnes earlier this summer, but they have now drifted out to 14/1 with football betting sites.
However, they signed Youri Tielemans on a free transfer from Leicester last month, and they could go back to the well for Barnes.
The team’s upturn in form after Unai Emery replaced Steven Gerrard as manager in October was nothing short of remarkable.
Yet their chief strength lies in central midfield and up front, with the likes of Ollie Watkins, John McGinn and Douglas Luiz forming a strong spine.
They do not have many high-quality wingers within their ranks, so Barnes could be an attractive target, and odds of 14/1 may appeal to some punters.
Football Transfer Buzz: Harvey Barnes Next Club Odds Uncovered
Spurs are next in at 20/1 with betting apps as they seek to rebuild their squad following a very disappointing campaign.
Maddison’s arrival should improve the creative department, but they still need reinforcements in wide areas.
Tottenham splashed out on Richarlison last summer, but he proved to be one of the biggest flops of the season, scoring just once in 27 league games.
Son Heung-Min’s form also dipped, while Lucas Moura has left the club, so signing new wingers will be a priority, and Barnes could appeal.
Long-shots include Arsenal (33/1), Brighton (33/1) and Crystal Palace at 33/1, but West Ham and Aston Villa remain the leading candidates to usurp Newcastle in this bidding process.
