Dean Smith revealed yesterday, following Brentford's pre-season friendly draw with Southampton, that there had been "no offers" for Jota . The Spanish ace has been the subject of much speculation this summer, with a number of Premier League clubs interested in signing him. Newcastle United, Burnley, Everton and Derby County have all been linked with an £8 million move for the 25-year-old, but the Bees have yet to receive a formal offer. Another club have also been credited with an interest - West Ham - and it is the London Stadium where the bookmakers believe Jota will be plying his trade next season. The Hammers are now odds-on favourites to sign the Spaniard, with the odds on him joining Slaven Bilic's men tumbling in the last 24 hours.

Ironically Wilshere played his highest number of games for three seasons for Arsenal last term, making 38 appearances, scoring two goals – proving his long-term fitness just as his contract is due to expire at the end of this month. Both parties have reached a … [Read more...] about Jack Wilshere – bookies slash price for Arsenal midfielder to join West Ham as Crystal Palace monitor situation
