Henry Confirms Arsenal’s Interest in Liverpool Star!

As talk of a potential Arsenal move for the Liverpool youngster Raheem Sterling continues to do the rounds in the media, the Gunners’ legendary striker Thierry Henry has confirmed that his former side are indeed in for the player and has claimed that he would love to see him at the Emirates, despite admitting that the talented winger may have been badly advised by his agent.

As quoted by Sky Sports, Henry said: “I think we all know that he’s been receiving some bad advice. You can’t go out there and talk about your contract in the press. You have to respect your fans, respect the club that you play for. If you want to leave Liverpool or not, when you make the decision about leaving or staying, then do it. Don’t discuss yourself in the paper.

“He’s a great product for Liverpool and he’s going to be a great product for England. I would be more than happy to see him play for Arsenal but he’s still a Liverpool player. We all know he’s a Londoner, and we know Arsène [Wenger] is interested in him.”

After Arsene Wenger refused to rule out a move for the Englishman in his press conference, I’m sure this statement from Henry will effectively confirm Arsenal’s interest in signing him, as Titi is certain to have inside sources at his former club. When you look at the situation, Sterling’s potential move to Arsenal looks like the ideal scenario for both club and player.

Firstly, the 20-year-old wants to take his career to the next level, he wants to play Champions League football and Arsenal can certainly offer him that. Second, Sterling is from London and as Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher pointed out earlier, he is looking for a move back to his home city. In addition, Arsenal are no closer to tying down Theo Walcott to a new contract and Raheem Sterling may well be lined up as a like-for-like replacement, or, even better, as competition!

While there are many who claim that Sterling still needs to reach his full potential and urging the youngster to stay at Liverpool in order to do so, I would like to point out that there is perhaps no better manager in world football than Arsene Wenger who can help him fulfil that potential, like he’s done with so many promising youngsters in the past. Here’s hoping that Raheem Sterling can be the next such youngster.

    I didnt see this much hype when we had to sell Cesc, Nasri or RvP. All those pundits said they had rights to leave, and when it happens to Liverpool suddenly Sterling doesnt have right, guy can do what ever he likes, and if he wants to live in London, come to Arsenal, if this guy continues his progression, he will be the best player in EPL in seasons to come, I remember Hazard, when he was in Lille, he was nowhere Sterling quality, lets sign him and have 2 very good prospects for domination in Ox and Sterling.

      I’d rather spend that kind of money on a striker.
      In: Cech, Stones, Gustavo, Lacazette

      Cech
      Debuchy – Gabriel – Koscielny – Monreal
      Gustavo – Cazorla
      Walcott – Ozil – Alexis
      Giroud

      Ospina
      Bellerin – Chambers – Stones – Gibbs
      Coquelin – Ramsey
      Chamberlain – Wilshere – Welbeck
      Lacazette

      Yes please.

        I dont know why you guys think that we dont have money? “that kind of money” what do you think how much would cost Lacazzete? In today market you have to pay 40 m for players like Dybala, imagine how much you would have to pay for top top class!!!

      Noooooo. Plz not another overrated English kid. And a spoit brat on top of it. He’s made no progress in the last 2 years, but he feels he’s the next Ronaldo. Hez going nowhere because he does not have that extra work ethic and passion to realy excel. Plus look at the loyalty the guy has. A big IF he becomes a top player at arsenal. Hez just gonna jump ship to Madrid or Barca. So please don’t waste money and a spot in our tight midfield for him.

    Would be a great buy, but other positions are more important first!

    Also even if we are going to sell walcott (which i hope not as i think he is great), why dont we use him more! Walcott makes us a much better team when playing on the right. we can’t keep playing CM’s on the wing! it slows us down so much and also make us have no width.

      Is Walcott really that good at 90k/week ? Really ? Please take the time to watch 3 matches on Antoine Griezman of Atletico Madrid and compare
      And no I started watching him when he and Vela were mesmerising La Liga before he transferred to Atletico.

    Henry is right.You don’t talk about contract or personal issues to press.Liverpool cancelled a meeting today with sterling due to his agent’s comments.Will Wenger go for him? Fingers Crossed.He is not a necessity.I would rather have a top class striker to add competition to giroud.

    He’s welcome at Arsenal for the right price. Won’t really upgrade our squad for next season, but has great potential and Arsenal’s a great place to continue his development. The fact that’s he English can also add to our homegrown numbers. But as I said, only get him for the right price. We should not compromise more important world class signings to improve our squad for Sterling

    How likely is it that we will sign Vidal from Juventus this summer????

      Why would he join Arsenal? What’s the motivation for him to join Arsenal?Is it first team spot? He already have that at Juventus.He is a regular starter.Is it CL football? Juventus alway qualifies for CL, with out struggling.Is it trophies? Juventus has been winning trophy every year since he joined, this season they have already won two trophies and they are going for the treble.

      So why would he change all that to play for Arsenal?

      Anyways he said this yesterday, you can find it on goal.com

      “Turin feels like home,” Vidal told
      24 Horas. “The people are very
      warm and passionate, very Latin,
      similar to in Chile. They say hello
      when I walk down the street.
      “I could stay in Turin for my
      whole life, for my family and for
      the people who love me. Of
      course, Juve are also one of the
      best teams in the world. It’s really
      difficult to change club when you’rethis happy.
      “This squad is spectacular and
      after the Scudetto we want to win
      the Champions League.”

        If the club sell him and there is another club willing to pay for him, why not? That’s how mostly transfer works. Maybe Juve need to balance their financial after paying a load of money for Dybala and another transfer targets this summer, who knows?

    Don’t want Sterling. I’m not worried about us getting him though. No matter how much Arsene wants him, Man City will outbid us. They’re desperate for English players with Lampard and Milner leaving, they’ll pay top dollar. And make no mistake that’s good for us. Not only will we avoid wasting money on Sterling, but Man City will have to spend a large portion of their transfer budget to get him, so they’ll be less able to outbid us on other top targets.

      I do hope FFP isn’t watered down. It’s good that the likes of Man City and Chelski can’t cherry pick the best players any more without having to make sacrifices. Yes, Manure is in the driving seat at the moment, but every club has the opportunity to try and increase it’s income, but not every club will appeal to a sugar daddy, and all the inherent problems that brings.

      A sugar daddy ensures that the amount of clubs competing for a top place will always be narrower. FFP ensures clubs have to try and develop younger players and competitive business plans, and it provides employment, education and growth, rather than a sugar daddy throwing obscene amounts of money at the best players in the world, where the money goes into diamond earrings and hair transplants rather than developing players and facilities .

    Sterling will be a fantastic addition to our growing collection of wingers. We can afford to play with 5 wingers unlike many clubs.

    Sanchez Gnabry OX Walcott Welbeck Sterling
    __Monreal Koscielny Mertesacker Bellerin
    _____________Ospina

    No team can handle the sheer explosiveness in this team 😉

    See this is an ongoing problem at Arsenal, constantly purchasing good players that don’t upgrade the team, then when it doesn’t work out we say, “oh but look Wegner has made a signal of intent, if we make the right signings next summer we’ll definitely challenge”

    Look for as good as Sterling is or has the potential to be, buying him would be a terrible purchase, not because he can’t develop into a world class player but because there are far more pressing issues. Are we really going to spend 30 – 40 million on a winger when we already have 2 wingers that can’t get game time because they start behind the CMs who already play out of position? No, that makes no sense.

    Priorities, Striker and a defensive mid. After you get those 2 or are certain they are coming you can then tackle whether you think we need a GK, a CB and another winger. But the fact of the matter is we have to many players on the RW and they aren’t stupid. If we get Sterling you really think Ox, Walcott, Welbeck, will be happy, even though Welbeck isn’t even a winger?

    There’s also an ongoing holier than thou attitude that since we’ve paid off the stadium debt we’re above doing transactions with other rivals yet we’re asking Chelsea to do the same thing. If you’re inthe camp that we need a GK then letting Walcott go in exchange for Cech (if we plan to get Sterling) would be a sensible idea.

    Focus on Arsenal first because if you think Chelsea are thinking of Cech when they ask for Walcott they aren’t

      Aye, let’s assume we would sign Sterling. He signs a regular 4-5 year contract, probably worth more than 100k a week.

      Option 1: he becomes injury prone like players often do, kind of like OX has been. Nothing spectacular, good squad player. Good squad player for £20-30 million (being optimistic) plus the wages. Goes in the racket with Andy Carroll and Steward Downing purchases.

      Option 2: he becomes a star! A Hazard-like with insane dribbling skills. Then what? He’s off to Barca or Real or worse Chelsea, as soon as he hits his best season. Why would he do this? He just did it with Liverpool, even though HE HASN’T EVEN BEEN THAT GOOD. He’s holding a big club in ransom, at 20-years old wíth 11 goals to his name in +50 apps.

      How on Earth could we benefit from Sterling transfer?

    henry wants to not say to much about arsenals transfer ideas/plans.
    because he is going to give the game away and being arsenal youth coach employee he will have some access to what the transfer plans are roughly, but he should not try and abuse his inside the club position in the club, to get some cheap acclaim for reporting this “magic news” on his time in the sky studio to make himself look better.
    or wenger had better get him out of the club for now until he learns that we keep our transfers a secret for a reason.
