Chelsea & Arsenal ready to battle if Man City offload £49m star – Reports & Arsenal ready to battle if Man City offload £49m star – Reports

Arsenal and Chelsea are reportedly keeping a close eye on Raheem Sterling’s situation as they believe the winger could be offloaded by Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola is still working on reshaping the City squad and has been doing so ever since taking over from Manuel Pellegrini last summer.

According to Telegraph, “a number of the top Premier League clubs and managers are under the impression” that Manchester City will make Raheem Sterling available for transfer within the next 12 months, which likely means next summer. City are widely expected to move for Alexis either in January or at the end of the season, and with Sterling already lined up as collateral damage this summer, he’s expected to become just that next summer as well.

Sterling has racked up 97 appearances, scoring 23 goals, since arriving at the Etihad from Liverpool in a deal worth £49m two years ago.

And he had been tipped to play a starring role under Pep Guardiola after experiencing an upturn in form after the Spaniard took charge of City last summer.

Doubt was cast over Sterling’s future in the latter stages of the recent transfer window when rumours of him going to Arsenal in part-exchange for Alexis Sanchez were aired.

City denied the England international was available though and Txiki Begiristain apparently reinforced the message that he’s a key part of their plans to him personally.

However, The Telegraph have revealed a number of top flight teams and managers think Sterling is likely to be sold when Guardiola finishes shaping his squad.

The newspaper reckon Chelsea and Arsenal are the only sides the 22-year-old could join if he was to be made available by City in the next 12 months.

The Gunners were linked with a possible move for the 22-year-old late this summer, with a potential cash-plus-player deal for Alexis Sanchez rumoured by some.

A deal never materialised to take the Chilean international to Manchester this transfer window – but it is expected that Man City will try again to sign the Arsenal star either in January or next summer.

And that Telegraph suggest that, if Pep Guardiola’s side do show an interest in Sanchez again in January, the Gunners may well enquire about Raheem Sterling.
