Arsenal could sign Euro 2020 star following Ian Wright’s comments

Arsenal has been linked with a move for Raheem Sterling (Sports Illustrated) and they could sign the Englishman if he listens to the advice of Arsenal legend, Ian Wright.

Sterling was one of England’s key players at Euro 2020, but the Englishman has returned to become just a bit-part player at Manchester City.

He had lost his place in their starting XI before Euro 2020 and had been hoping that he would get it back after a fine performance to help England reach the final of the competition.

Wright has been surprised that Pep Guardiola has snubbed the attacker for first-team action so far and claims that he has to make a decision.

He admits Sterling would still go to the next World Cup if he still doesn’t see much action at City, but adds that at some point the attacker will have to go where he would play often.

Wright said as quoted by The Daily Mail: ‘You’re looking at a player who is easily one of our most potent players who isn’t playing at his club, at some stage he’s going to have to sort it out. We know that Gareth will pick him and come the World Cup as long as he’s fit he’ll be going.

‘But from a personal view whatever is going on with him and the manager, I think it was after a game against Man United then it was Southampton he went and had a word with him but since then he’s been out of it.

‘At some stage something has to happen where he plays more regularly.’

This has now opened the door for Arsenal to land the former Liverpool man.

If Sterling ever wants out, Mikel Arteta would move to be reunited with him after they worked together at City when Arteta was the assistant manager of the Premier League champions.

  1. certainly not beyond the realm of possibility, but I still worry about the cost variables involved in such an undertaking, especially considering that it would likely require some considerable “convincing” on our part, unless we were actually playing some meaningful minutes in Europe next season…not sure if this would be a wise investment without a tactical rethink that included a formational change and the arrival of a proven creative midfielder

  2. If Arsenal climb up the ladder and are top 6 or near top 4 somewhere in December, Sterling could join us in January.
