The latest Arsenal rumours are saying that the Gunners have rejected the first offer from Manchester City for Alexis Sanchez, and as it has been reported by the BBC I am more than willing to believe it. Wenger will be aiming to get as much as possible from the moneybags at the Etihad but I am sure a deal will definitely be struck before the window closes.
But the idea of getting in Raheem Sterling as part of the deal is exciting to me, and according to the Beeb’s report the ex-QPR youngster is keen on a return to London where he was brought up. In fact he went to school just down the road from Wembley Stadium.
This is what the BBC said: England forward Sterling, 22, has featured in all three of City’s games so far this season.
However he is not guaranteed a starting role at Etihad Stadium following the summer arrival of Bernardo Silva from Monaco.
BBC Sport understands Sterling would be interested in moving back to his home city of London should he become part of the Sanchez deal.
It is hard to believe that Sterling is just 22 considering that he has spent 5 years at Liverpool and Man City already, and has made 32 appearances for the England team. If Arsenal can persuade City to let him return to London I think he is an excellent signing and still has loads of improvement in him.
If we must sell Sanchez then we may as well get a young star in return….
