Arsenal battling Tottenham for Premier League winner

Arsenal is battling Tottenham for Raheem Sterling as Manchester City prepares to offload some of their stars.

City has just ended another campaign by winning the Premier League and the Carabao Cup, but they lost the Champions League final to Chelsea.

The Citizens are expected to overhaul their playing staff this summer and it means some star-studded names will leave the Etihad.

With that in mind, Todofichajes says Sterling is no longer untouchable at the home of the English champions.

The report says he could leave and has interest from Arsenal and the aforementioned rival.

The Gunners have some advantage considering that Mikel Arteta worked with him before at City.

The attacker might also get the chance to become the main star at Arsenal.

However, the report says City might force him to move to Tottenham instead as a part of their move for Harry Kane.

The England captain has emerged as a top transfer target for the champions and they know Daniel Levy will charge them a lot of money.

They may add a player as a sweetener and Sterling is one of those that Spurs could accept.

The attacker earns a huge wage at City and it remains unclear if Arsenal could match his current salary.

    Look Arsenal can pay big salaries, we just simply offset them by reducing the squad. The problem we have is we don’t like paying the upfront fees. When our club puts in a bid the whole package is factored in and no resale value is expected. That is how Kroenke runs his businesses. His model is acquire companies and clubs based upon their value as an asset, in terms of land value. He invested around £1bn in Arsenal and despite, little success, poor dealings in the transfer market, incredible losses, a pandemic and rising debt, the value of the club has doubled and he is in a position to turn down offers.

    Even if Sterling is surplus to requirements at City, I cannot see why he’d drop down to the level of Spurs and Arsenal?

    From our own perspective, another winger isn’t even a priority.

    I really hope we don’t go back in for Ben White I read he’s 5’11 imo that’s too small for a CB unless it’s cannavaro I want all my CBs over 6ft.. I really don’t understand what Arteta and Edu are trying to do.

      hes ball playing centre back who possesses great passing ability and ball control.
      and we dont have that kind cb right now.
      holding, gabriel, mari are physically dominant defender.
      hes also can play as dm, mybe arteta will put him as dm along side partey

      1. Kev82 says:

        If Arteta is after a DM I’d rather he go out and sign a natural DM rather than a very expensive Versatile player. We have plenty of CBs if he actually gives Saliba a chance

          👍 Kev82, you have nailed it, but common sense is not that common.

    MA proving to be a cheque book manager morecand more….can this guy even coach?

  5. ozziegunner says:

    Someone should wake us up when Arsenal is connected to a player they really need to strengthen, not augment what they have.

  6. Abul says:

    My heart bleeds on the thought of what Arteta did to Saliba. I am in great pains trying to come to terms with the way Arteta handled and continues to treat the Young man.

    His sins are simply that he choose the right club at the wrong time.
