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 in the January transfer window

Here is a selection of the odds for what could be the biggest January 2015 transfers in the English Premiership:

Edinson Cavani (PSG): Cavani is tipped as at 12/5 to join the Gunners, while Cavani is 10/1 to join Manchester City.

Mario Balotelli (Liverpool): Could Mario be going back to Italy? Inter Milan are best priced at 8/1 to sign him while Fiorentina are tipped at 14/1.

Mats Hummels (Dortmund): Manchester United are favourites to sign the Germand defender with 3/1 odds while Arsenal are some way off at 12/1.

Marcos Reus (Dortmund): Manchester United are the leading English side in the running for Reus (20/1) but are some way off Real Madrid who are listed as favourites at 9/4.

Xherdan Shaqiri (Bayern Munich): Liverpool are second favourites to sign the Swiss star at 6/4 with Inter Milan "leading" the race at 5/4.

Wilfried Bony (Swansea City): Bony is linked with a 5/4 move to City while Liverpool are second in line at 7/1. Interestingly, Real Madrid are fourth-best priced to sign Bony at 12/1.

Lucas (Liverpool): Is the Brazilian finally set for an Anfield exit? Strong odds of 6/4 suggest Inter Milan are keen to sign the midfielder.

James McCarthy (Everton): The bookies suggest a three-horse race for the Evertonian. Spurs, Manchester United and Arsenal are all tipped at 6/1 to sign the midfielder.

Morgan Schneiderlin (Southampton): The Saints general is linked with Arsenal at 3/1, Spurs at 8/1 and Manchester United at 16/1.

Jermain Defoe (FC Toronto): Harry Redknapp does not lead the race according to the bookies as QPR are second in line at 7/2 with Leicester City in front of the Defoe queue at a staggering 4/9.
