Struggling Arsenal target yet to get new deal

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to sign Raheem Sterling from Manchester City.

Sports Illustrated had confirmed earlier in the summer that the Gunners and other top European clubs were interested in a move for him.

He had lost his place in the City team towards the end of last season.

Sterling was in stunning form for England at Euro 2020 and that may have bought him some time.

However, the attacker has remained just a squad member at City and has failed to deliver the fine form he did for England at club level.

The Telegraph is now reporting that he hasn’t been given a new City deal yet.

His current contract with the Premier League champions expires in 2023 and they should ideally be keen to get him on a new one now.

However, that hasn’t happened with the attacker seemingly playing for his future at the Etihad.

If his poor club form continues, City will have even more reasons not to give him a new deal.

That could be good news for Arsenal who might get to sign him cheaply.

Mikel Arteta worked with him well when he was the assistant manager of City and the Spaniard could bring out the best in him yet again.

    Stirling is struggling on 300k quid a week.
    He can’t pay the leccie and goes to the food bank to make ends meet in his 2 up 2 down.
    Arsenal just paid Willian 15 million quid to leave.
    Let us sign a Willian replacement.
    Never mind these young players.
    Give Stirling a 5 year contract at 300k p/w.
    Thats only 75mill quid.
    Get it done 🙂

      Agree. Money is obscene in football but money doesn’t just change wanting to actually play football (and he has very real concerns over his England place without playing time, a team that could well win a WC/EC in his time) not to mention money doesn’t change ordinary every day relationships such as your relationship with the manager no longer trusting you.

      As to fairfan: If were lucky enough to get Sterling it would be a revelation especially off that weaker for us left side. He’s 26 not in his 30s and has a great relationship with Arteta.

      Once again making unfounded cIaims I see, I’m still waiting for you to post the link which proves that Wilian received a 15M pay off.
