Arsenal target shining at the Euros open to changing clubs

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to sign Raheem Sterling with a new report claiming that the English attacker is open to leaving Manchester City this summer.

Sterling has been one of England’s heroes at the current Euro 2020 summer competition.

The attacker is a certain starter under Gareth Southgate, but Pep Guardiola did not consider him that way at Manchester City last season.

He faced competition from Phil Foden and that reduced his playing time for the Premier League champions.

He has now been linked with a move away from the club with Arsenal interested in bringing him back to London.

They wanted him when he was a youngster on the books of QPR and lost out to Liverpool.

Mikel Arteta also worked with him at Manchester City and the current Arsenal boss would love to be reunited with him at the Emirates.

The Athletic says the attacker is open to a new challenge and because he has just two years left on his current deal, City might listen to offers for his signature as well.

He would cost Arsenal a lot of money, but The Sun says they are prepared to pay him high wages to join them.

    I hate to do our club down but why on earth would an established player like Sterling come to us right now? I understand the connection between him, Arteta and ManC but he doesn’t need to join a club that is in a rebuilding phase especially when his stock is so high as a result of the Euros. He is hardly looking for his big, final pay day yet. Of course, he could give us a try in 3 years 😊

    Forget it with the high wages. We sell players and cancel contracts (Sokratis, Mustafi, possibly Kola now) to save wage bill, then turn around and pay Willian ridiculous wages?

    Bring in Sterling on high wages too?

    No thanks. I’d rather give Martinelli his chances than bench him further behind a new Sterling and a poor form Willian.

    Especially with only domestic games it does not make sense.

    White + Sterling = entire transfer kitty probably, or vast majority at least reaching over £100 million.

      But this is Sterling we are talking about. There is no player at Arsenal better than him right now and 50-70M would be a steal. I say we get Sterling and sell Pepe. And about Martinelli, what are the chances he will be as good if not better than Sterling?

      Anyway it just pissed me off that we are just going after 2nd rate players (Lokonga – an anderlecht reserve) when we have 250M warchest… As of now, chances are we will lose White, Locatelli and other targets to some other clubs willing to pay more for them..

    i think we do not need the likes of sterling,the olympic diver. rumour has it that , as we speak ,he is preparing to head to the olympics with team GB. but no thanks for me, he is a cheat, even apart from last nights dive !.apart from all that, would he not be taking a giant step backwards in coming to our club as it stands. this guy is in the prime of hid footballing life. so, this will never even happen.
