'They'd have him': Liverpool tipped as destination for 'outstanding' £49m Arsenal target

TalkSport pundit, Trevor Sinclair, has suggested that Liverpool would love to have Raheem Sterling back at the club this summer, amid speculation he could leave Manchester City.

Sterling is said to be one of a number of City players who could potentially depart this summer. Arsenal have been heavily-linked with a move for the England man, with Mikel Arteta a big fan of the speedy forward. However, as of yet, there has been no movement and Sterling is currently away with England anyway, meaning any imminent deal is unlikely.

Of course, Sterling left Liverpool a few seasons ago to join City and it wasn’t a decision that went down too well amongst the Anfield faithful. But regardless of that, TalkSport’s Sinclair has suggested that Sterling would be welcomed back to Liverpool right now.

“I think they’d have him. Especially with what’s going on. Nunez is going there. You look at the situation with Salah, no contract agreement in place. I think Liverpool fans would have him back because of what he’s won and the way he’s conducted himself,” Sinclair said this morning.

“Obviously not the greatest way to leave the club, so whether Raheem would go back there, he might be a little bit scarred.”

Sterling has been a huge part of Pep Guardiola’s success at City. The England man has made over 300 appearances for the Citizens, scoring 131 goals.

TBR’s View: No Chance Raheem Sterling Goes Back To Liverpool

Sinclair makes a valid point given Sterling’s ability, but surely there is no way the City man goes back to a club that’s now his biggest rival.

Further, Liverpool have probably moved on from Sterling and Klopp is unlikely to look to the past to fill a key position.

So while Liverpool fans might see Sterling as a good player who improves the XI, there is surely little chance of a deal being done here.
