Cape Town - British bookmakers Sky Bet have run their numbers and produced the odds for the top possible English Premiership signings.

Did you cash in on Angel Di Maria signing for Manchester United?

Or perhaps you knew Luis Suarez was going to Barcelona and placed a wager on the deal?

Sky Bet, presumably using the knowledge of their colleagues across the way at Sky Sports, have priced up the odds of some serious English Premiership transfers with less than a week to go before the window slams shut.

Here is a selection of the odds for what could be major transfers in the English Premiership:

Arturo Vidal (Juventus): The Chilean is 1/10 to join Manchester United.

Petr Cech (Chelsea): The goalkeepers is now priced at 5/2 to leave Chelsea for PSG

Edinson Cavani (PSG): Cavani is Just 1/1 to join the Gunners, while Cavani is 4/1 to join Chelsea.

Mats Hummels (Dortmund): Barcelona are favourites to sign the defender with 1/1 odds while Manchester United are second in line at 6/4.

Danny Welbeck (Man Utd): Everton (1/1) lead Spurs (5/1) to sign the United forward. Lukas Podolski (Arsenal): Juventus and Wolfsburg are neck and neck, according to the bookies, to sign the German forward with odds of 1/1.

Paul Pogba (Juventus): Despite signing a new deal at Juventus, Chelsea are 6/4 favourites to sign the French star.

Loic Remy (QPR): Arsenal (5/4) lead Newcastle (6/4) to sign the QPR striker.

Marcos Reus (Dortmund): Liverpool are the leading English side in the running for Reus (7/2) but Atletico Madrid lead the race with odds as low as 4/7.

James Milner (Manchester City): The side with the best chance of signing the English midfielder? Liverpool with odds of 10/11.
