Odds update: Bookies cut Arsenal into 6/1 to sign Lucas Moura

Paris Saint-Germain's Lucas Moura celebrates scoring their second goal

The PSG star could be heading to Arsenal, according to the bookies.

Popular bookmakers BETVICTOR have installed the Gunners as second favourites behind Manchester United in the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura this summer.

The 24-year-old Brazilian is one of the most highly sought-after talents on the continent, and his direct playing style would add an entirely different facet to Arsenal's play, should they manage to bring him to the Emirates.

Arsene Wenger is preparing for life without Alexis Sanchez, who has been linked with a big-money move to Manchester City and Bayern Munich.

The north London outfit are expected to fetch in excess of £50 million for the Chilean, should he eventually leave the club, which would mean they will be heavily flush with cash.

And BETVICTOR believe that they are in with a shout of signing the PSG star.

They make the Gunners 6/1 second favourites, joint with Chelsea, to win the race for the former Sao Paulo man, who scored 19 goals in 53 outings for the French giants last term.

The Red Devils remain favourites to sign Moura, however, and are listed at 4/1.

French media outlet Le Parisien claim that PSG are willing to sell the 24-year-old for just £26 million, which would represent an absolute steal for whichever club eventually wins the race to sign him.
