Raheem Sterling back on Arsenal radar 0

Posted on September 21, 2017 by Milos Markovic

Arsene Wenger remains the keen admirer of Raheem Sterling’s qualities and is reportedly thinking about going back for the Manchester City winger in January.

The Citizens are likely to use Wenger’s interest in the 22-year-old English international to leverage a deal for Alexis Sanchez as potential swap deal is already being mooted by the Mirror.

The Chilean star is unlikely to extend his deal with the north London club and although Wenger would rather not see him leave for Premier League rivals he will make sure to appease Arsenal fans with a respectable replacement.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are still keen to sign Manchester City and England forward Raheem Sterling, after missing out on his signature before the summer transfer window closed. With Alexis Sanchez a target for Manchester City on deadline day, the Gunners wanted Sterling at the Emirates as a makeweight. However, City manager Pep Guardiola refused the deal and may try to sign Alexis again in January. But Arsenal might approach Sterling again too.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he’s unsure if he will make another approach for Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez when the January transfer window opens in the new year, reports talkSPORT.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen in the wintertime or next season. He’s an Arsenal player. Of course we were interested in him (but) at the end Arsenal decided not to sell him. So, all the best for Alexis. I know him from Barcelona. And that’s all. Sometimes the deals work, sometimes not,” he said.

Arsenal suffer defeat at Manchester City 1

Arsenal suffered a 2-1 defeat at Manchester City on Sunday afternoon, despite taking an early lead through Theo Walcott. The defeat means that the Gunners have now suffered back-to-back defeats in the top-flight.

Arsenal took the lead with the first shot on goal on five minutes. A good team move lead to Alexis Sanchez putting Theo Walcott through on goal and the winger slotted coolly low past Claudio Bravo in the City goal.

The home side had a golden opportunity to equalise on seven minutes. Kevin De Bruyne put a pinpoint cross into Raheem Sterling at the far post, only for the winger to head agonisingly wide of goal from close-range.

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is currently featuring for England’s Euro 2016 qualifier against San Marino, a game the Three Lions are odds of 1/100 to win.

The youngster has lots of potential, but his development at the Emirates Stadium has been curtailed by injuries. He is a promising player for both club and country. England boss Roy Hodgson is obviously keen to see what the former-Southampton star can do.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was favoured over Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling for the game, as Hodgson looks at his wide options with Euro 2016 qualification set to be confirmed with a win in San Marino.

Arsenal once again linked with Marco Reus 0

Posted on July 25, 2015 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal are set to rival Liverpool for the signing of Dortmund’s highly-rated attacking midfielder Marco Reus.

The Gunners have previously been linked with a move for Reus. In fact he seems to be linked with Arsenal every transfer window. He is no doubt a talented player, but his last few seasons have been interrupted by injuries and last season ankle trouble restricted his appearances.

The 26-year-old made 20 Bundesliga appearances for the German giants, scoring seven goals and producing five assists as Jurgen Klopp’s side struggled for the majority of the campaign. It was not his best campaign of his career, but he is still regarded as one of the best players in the German top-flight.

Arsenal Football Club manager Arsene Wenger has spoken at length about a number of important topics as he held his first press conference upon arriving in Singapore.

The Gunners will take part in the Barclays Asia Trophy together with Everton, Stoke City and Singapore Select XI, and the manager is happy to be returning to one of world’s leading commercial hubs.

“I’m happy to be in Singapore. I have been here before, I know it’s a very good place, a very safe place and usually things are well organised. So we can hope to have a good combination of competition and preparation in our training sessions, as well as good conditions in our hotel, which is important.”

Manchester City linked with move for Wilshere 0

Posted on June 18, 2015 by David Nugent

The Daily Mirror are once again linking Manchester City with a big money move for Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere this summer.

The Citizens seem to have made Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling their priority signing this summer after they had a second bid of around £40million for the England international rejected on Wednesday night.


However, if City cannot secure the signing of Sterling they may turn their attention to the Arsenal midfielder and launch an initial £30million bid. Wilshere is obviously a completely different sort of player to Sterling, but fits in with City’s priorities this summer, as he is relatively young and English.

Should Arsenal bid for Raheem Sterling? 2

Liverpool have rejected an offer for Raheem Sterling from Manchester City. The Citizens offered the Reds a deal worth an initial £25million for the youngster and also add-ons of around £5million. Reports this morning from various sources suggest that the Merseysider’s are looking for £50million for the England star.


Arsenal are one of the clubs mooted as a possible destination for Sterling this summer and the Gunners are currently joint-third favourites to sign the forward at odds of 6/1.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is believed to be a big admirer of the youngster, who is regarded as a future world-class star.

Do Arsenal really need Raheem Sterling given their vast options in attack? 1

Posted on May 19, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger refused to deny interest in Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling in a recent press conference, which could well see a bid lodged this summer from the London side.

Sterling, an England international, recently admitted a desire to leave the Merseysiders at the end of the season, citing ambitions of winning trophies. He won’t be signing a new deal with the Reds this summer, which has set a host of clubs on red alert. Manchester City are the frontrunners for his signature, but Arsenal are the surprise addition to the interested suitors.
