Arsenal ‘have the advantage’ in bid to wrap up deal for Premier League star

Sky Sports pundit Michael Bridge have hinted that Arsenal have an advantage in their quest to sign Raheem Sterling

Regarded as one of the finest attackers in world football, Sterling has established himself under the guidance of Pep Guardiola over the past few seasons, and has become areal source of goals for City.

However, this season he has struggled to score the goals that he has become accustomed to at City, and has even found himself on the bench more often than he would have liked, which did not shock many of us in the media.

That has led to some stunning reports in the media that Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is ready to raid his former club and try to bring Sterling to the Emirates, although they would have to beat off the likes of Barcelona to even have a chance of getting a deal done.

The attacker had a good relationship with Mikel Arteta when the latter was a coach at City and Bridge believes this could also make a move to London appealing to the England International.

Bridge told GiveMeSport: “He’s a boy from Brent, so he’s from around north London.

“I think that’s where he likes to be, so Arsenal and Spurs would probably be in for him.

“But does he see that as an option or does he want to have a go abroad?”


If Arsenal could get Sterling he would be great. But the man would cost well over £60 million and would demand a wage of over £250,000-a-week, so can we really see the Gunners pay that amount of money?

However, he is a big time player that has won multiple trophies and scored many goals, he is a superstar in the Premier League and a player that all the top clubs would want

So event though he is not loved by all, the Gunners fans would love to see a signing like him arrive
