Arsenal are considering signing Raheem Sterling in the summer, as the Spanish manager eyes top-notch options to strengthen his squad’s attacking unit. The Man City attacker will enter the final year of his contract at the club, which may prompt a sale in the close campaign.
England international has cut a somewhat frustrating figure at Man City this campaign, with many factors affecting his future. Firstly, there is his precarious deal situation, with Sterling ready to enter the last year of his contract.
Secondly, Pep Guardiola’s reluctance to start him in major matches, such as the UCL semi-final at Real Madrid has left him frustrated. Moreover, Raheem is reportedly not convinced with Man City’s offer for an extension, which has prompted reports to suggest he might be open to leaving on a free transfer in 2023.
Man City may not want to see a footballer entering his prime leave on a Bosman move, and hence, they could entertain offers in the close campaign. The Gunners are reportedly keen to secure the services of the 27-year-old winger, as the Spanish manager eyes a top-notch forward to strengthen his attacking options.
Arsenal are already the favourites to land the English forward’s Man City teammate Gabriel Jesus and may add the attacker to the mix. Man City may look to solve things with the Englishman but could put him up for sale if push came to shove as they do not want to lose him on a free transfer.
