Arsenal fans react when Romano claims Sterling, Arteta ‘convinced’

Author: | Posted in Sports No comments

Fabrizio Romano claims that Mikel Arteta has identified Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling as perfect for Arsenal – and Gunners fans have responded.

Sterling, 26, is in and out of the Manchester City team at the moment. The 72-time English national team player has only started eight out of 17 matches during this period.

In fact, Sterling was even an unused substitute in the 2-0 win over Manchester United earlier this month. He has talked about wanting to go.

The ex-Liverpool man is keen to move abroad – but there are plenty of opportunities for the Englishman to stay in the Premier League.

In a speech to the Arsenal Lounge, Romano says Arteta is “in love” with Sterling and is “convinced” he would be ideal for the Gunners.

“For Sterling, it’s about the contract. Man City have been clear with him – extend the contract, otherwise we will try to sell you in January or next summer.

“It’s true Arsenal would love to have him. Mikel Arteta is in love, he is convinced he would be perfect. Man City want more than £ 50m.”

What do Arsenal fans say about Sterling, amid Romano claims?

Arsenal are starting to form an identity under Arteta. At their best, just like the victory over Tottenham – Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey sat deep.

Martin Odegaard in the 10-role, and Emile Smith-Rowe and Bukayo Saka on the flanks – behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

But Odegaard has been a bit inconsistent lately, with Alexandre Lacazette starting in front of him. Ideally, Arsenal need a right wing.

That would allow Smith-Rowe to play as 10s and Saka to get over to the left where he is best. Sterling would take care of that.

But also, Sterling can play from the left and as a 10 – even up. That agility remains with Sterling and Arsenal fans want him signed.
