Arsenal in pole position to sign Man City winger

The Gunners are reportedly interested in signing Raheem Sterling as the North London club look to increase their attacking options following a disappointing season in the Premier League.

According to the Sun, it is understood that the 26-year old winger has fallen down the pecking order under Pep Guardiola due to the emergence of Phil Foden who has been impressive since his debut. Despite scoring 15 goals in all competitions this campaign, it is expected that Sterling is likely to depart the Etihad for first-team football.

After making a name for himself in Liverpool under Brendan Rodgers, Man City signed Sterling for £44m and went on to win accolades for the Citizens. He was also a part of the squad that won the domestic treble under Pep Guardiola.

The 26 year old winger nearly signed for the Gunners in 2010, instead he opted to sign for the Reds in a £600,000 deal. It is also been reported that Mikel Arteta is keen on bringing Sterling to the Emirates and is willing to splash the cash on his weekly wages.

Apart from Sterling, the Gunners are keen on signing Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid on a permanent basis following his impressive spell in England.

Reports emerged that Spurs had been linked to Sterling, but opted out as his wages were proving costly for Daniel Levy. With Spurs out of the race, the Gunners look to be in the driving seat to sign the Three Lions winger.
