Sterling tipped for Arsenal transfer
Raheem Sterling should leave Manchester City this summer and move to Arsenal.
That is the view of Trevor Sinclair who has delivered his verdict on the winger who according to the Daily Mail, is a target for the Gunners in the upcoming window after struggling to hold down a place in Pep Guardiola’s team recently.
“I might be wrong, but reading between the lines and the media that’s being released, I think they’d be prepared to let him go,” Sinclair told talkSPORT. “I think there’s a potential move for Raheem [Sterling] this summer.
“You look at the individual; there are a few little rumours coming out that Man City are prepared to listen to offers.
“You look at the way he’s played during his time at Man City and he has been superb.
“I think they’ll be a queue of clubs wanting to sign him.
“Not on the last three or four months of form but on his previous nine years of performances.
What Arsenal must do to keep Stan and Josh Kroenke’s promise
Arsenal won’t be in European competition next season.
But the American businessmen have repeatedly stated the intention to have the Gunners challenging for the Premier League and Champions League in the coming seasons.
“We remain 100 per cent committed to Arsenal and are not selling any stake in the club. We have not received any offer and we will not entertain any offer,” the pair said in a statement in April.
“Our ambition for Arsenal remains to compete to win the biggest trophies in the game and our focus remains on improving our competitiveness on the pitch to achieve this.”
That is a big promise and herefootball.london takes a look at some of the ways they could stick to it.

£60m Aarons and Buendia double deal
Arsenal technical director Edu is expected to be busy in the summer window as he aims to bolster Arteta’s first-team squad following a disappointing season.
Among the host of players being linked with a move to the Emirates is Norwich City pair Max Aarons and Emiliano Buendia.
Right-back and attacking midfield are certainly two areas of priority for the Gunners this summer and the aforementioned pair would be shrewd signings.
With that said, Edu has been told by Canaries sporting director Stuart Webber that will cost at least £30m to sign one – which means the Brazilian could be looking at a £60m double deal.
“If we do sell one, it’s going to be a club record deal,” Webber said.
“It’s probably going to start with a number three in front of it and that will give us great opportunities to maybe make the whole better as well. We’re really relaxed on that front.”
