QPR’s Charlie Austin 5/1 to join Liverpool this month
Competition: Premier League
Market: Charlie Austin to join Liverpool
Odds: 5/1 @ 888 Sport
Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin has been in fine form in the Premier League this season, and with the winter transfer window now open, speculation has been rising about his future. A host of sides are said to be interested in his services, but face a stubborn QPR not willing to sell their most prized asset while their Premier League status hangs in the balace.
Austin, 25, has 13 goals in 20 games this season, but the Hoops are still currently in the bottom-three due to their failure to pick up a point on the road in any league game so far. Manager Harry Redknapp has stressed the important of the former Burnley man on many occasions, and owner Tony Fernandes knows survival rests a lot on Austin.
So his value will be skyrocketed this month if a club does want to make an official approach for him, and Liverpool are said to be in the driving seat. 888 Sport are giving odds of 5/1 for the 25-year-old to join Liverpool in January, as the Reds are looking for eventual replacements for Rickie Lambert & Fabio Borini, both of whom are expected to be sold in the summer.
