Report: Arsenal target Sterling to decide on his future after England game
Arsenal target Raheem Sterling will decide on his immediate future after England have played their final Nations League game of the current international break, according to a report from ESPN.
Sterling’s future with Manchester City looks to be a little uncertain. His contract at the Etihad Stadium expires at the end of next season.
Reports have claimed that both Arsenal and Tottenham want Sterling. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid also want the 27-year-old, according to ESPN.
ESPN also suggests that Arsenal want the forward. And they may not need to wait too long to find out whether they will sign the former Liverpool man in this window.
According to ESPN, Sterling is open to moving abroad. But he plans to make a decision on his immediate future after England have contested their game of the current break. Gareth Southgate’s men face Italy at Molineux this month.
Sterling will decide on his future after England game
Arsenal will benefit from Sterling making a decision as soon as possible. Obviously, the Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for Gabriel Jesus in this window.
They absolutely have to buy a marquee forward this summer. But interestingly, previous reports suggested that Sterling was the player Mikel Arteta wanted to make the focal point of the attack at the Emirates.
So perhaps Arsenal will be weighing up making a big play for the £49 million star should he decide that he is ready to leave in the coming days.
He is an ‘outstanding‘ player who has the potential to continue playing at the highest level for several years.
It will not be easy for Arsenal with no Champions League football ahead next season. But it would be a huge statement.
