Liverpool are favourites to sign one of the world's top forward, according to Ladbrokes.

The bookmaker has cut the odds on the 25-year-old moving to Anfield, with Chelsea and Manchester United among the other clubs in the running.

Rumours are rife in Spain that James Rodriguez will leave Real Madrid in the summer.

Odds of the Colombian heading to Anfield have dropped from 6/1 to 5/2, making the Reds clear favourites to be his next club.

Chelsea are second in the betting at 9/2, with a move to Manchester United priced up at 5/1.

Elsewhere, it’s 6/1 that Rodriguez is tempted away by the cash of the Chinese Super League, while there’s 10s on offer for him to join Pep Guardiola’s ranks at Manchester City.

Ladbrokes News’ Dave Burin said: “Don’t be surprised to see Rodriguez swap La Liga for Liverpool this summer, with Klopp keen to boost his ranks and the Colombian out-of-favour at the Bernabeu.”

James Rodriguez – Next Club betting

  • Liverpool - 5/2
  • Chelsea - 9/2
