Manchester City midfielder James Milner has been linked with both Arsenal and Liverpool.

Manchester City midfielder James Milner prefers a move to Arsenal to joining Liverpool in the summer transfer window, according to The Sun.

It has been reported by the British tabloid that the 29-year-old England international is “keener” on joining Arsenal than Liverpool or remaining at City.

Milner’s current contract with the Manchester outfit runs out at the end of the season, and, according to The Sun, he has refused to sign a new deal.

Arsenal or Liverpool?

It will be interesting to see what decision Milner makes in the summer, if indeed both Arsenal and Liverpool come for him.

While at Arsenal, the former Leeds United and Aston Villa star is going to be part of a team who consistently play in the Champions League, at Liverpool he is going to get more chances.

The 29-year-old has struggled for regular football at City since his move from Villa, and one wonders if he will be keen on playing a bit-part role for a new cliub.

The Gunners are inundated with attacking players, and although Milner is quite versatile, he will not be guaranteed playing time.

However, leaving City for Liverpool would be a step down for Milner, especially as the Merseyside outfit are not regulars in the Champions League.
