Mikel Arteta gives the green light to the signing of Premier League star

Mikel Arteta has given Arsenal the green light to sign Raheem Sterling as he looks set to leave Manchester City.

The England attacker and Euro 2020 star has been in fine form in recent weeks, which could make City want to keep him.

However, Todofichajes reports the attacker and the club have agreed to go their separate ways.

The report claims Sterling wants to return to London and has chosen to make the move to the Emirates.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We need attacking reinforcements, and they hardly come better than Sterling.

His form at Euro 2020 proved he is one of the finest attackers in the game, and he would make an impact at the Emirates.

With Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah leaving, Sterling is one of the finest players we can get.

However, he has other suitors and our final position on the league table this season might determine if he joins us or not.

A front three of Sterling-Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka would be devastating to our opponents.

Saka and Auba are already doing a good job at the club, and the arrival of the Englishman will only make us a much better side.

    Dream come true if we get him tbh. Will but us right back in the mix where we should be imho. Sterling is one ofnthe best wingers in the world. I think maybe even the 2nd or 3rd best in the prem.

    Big statement and huge name. English everything

    Sterling on the left,
    Saka on the right,
    Martinelli in the middle,
    Smithrowe Pulling the strings,
    Backed up Thomas & Co.

    Get Saliba back, Swap Mari for Gabigol & let Eddie, Laca, Elneny join Pablo out the door with Bellerin, Matteo & Lucas sales.

    Sterling is a top quality player. i would really want us to sign him in January. He is the player we need. we need more goals from our attacking players.

    Sterling would be a fantastic signing. His pace, dribbling and precision gives defenders torrid times. He can also play as false 9 so there is lot of flexibility. One of the finest attackers in the PL, Arsenal must go in for him and I feel that if he comes in January, it would be better for our cause of top 4 finish.

    Sterling is a big game player, and he would have done something in the Liverpool game. He will come at a certain fee, but trust me this lad is no Mesut or Laca or Mustafi. He will elevate us and being an national team player, it would do a lot of good for us and the player. Arsenal needs to have the core of its players in the national team and this will make us dominate the league. My dream is getting closer to reality with Ramsdale, White,ESR, Saka and if Mikel could snap Rice & Sterling, Wow! There is only one Mikel!

    I think it’s safe to say we should remove Auba from this sentence…otherwise the only thing that’s devastating is the amount of running the other 9 outfield players will be doing.

    When I think of Sterling I think of diving and missing goals for fun!

    I believe arsenal will only get sterling as a result of arteta’s influence especially when players like Locatelli (and now Vlahovic), two unknowns by Sterling’s standards weren’t or aren’t picking our calls. Even with arteta’s influence, it’s very much unlikely that we get him. In fact, I’ll say 1% chance. I predict he’ll replace Mbappe at PSG. Don’t get your hopes up. This deal ain’t happening

    The big question here is ,Why would Sterling who has refused to consider joining Arsenal in the past , wants to join now , when he is playing with the defending champions, who are second in the league, just one point behind leaders Chelsea. A player who is adamant, that he should start, despite his form or fitness spells trouble. Beware. Besides, Arsenal cannot afford to pay that much for him plus a salary of over 300,000 pounds weekly. Arsenal needs to make smart investments and must be lured into buying young players who will be fully committed to the club for several years and not guys, who, want to just satisfy their ego. Arsenal should definitely consider Christopher Nkunku instead, who is younger, cheaper with much lower wages .And,as of current form Nkunku is much better.

    Well it ain’t impossible, we could have Sterling, if we don’t get him, an injury free Martinelli can be one the next Sterling , all I want to see added to the team is stamina, speed and skills, been watching Ascensio play and the boy’s good, watched Vlahovic play, he’s strong but would need fast players by he’s side, I would prefer Zapata or Calvert Lewis.
