Report: Star to tell Liverpool he wants to leave, club make their stance clear

Raheem Sterling wants to leave Liverpool in the summer transfer window, according to BBC Sport, with Manchester City and Arsenal interested.

Raheem Sterling will tell Liverpool that he will not sign a new contract, according to BBC Sport.

It has been reported that the England international will hold a meeting with Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers and chief executive Ian Ayre on Friday.

According to the report, the winger will tell the duo that he wants to leave the Reds in the summer transfer window.

Sterling’s current contract with the Merseyside outfit runs out in June 2017, and it seems that the winger does not see his long-term future at Anfield.

BBC Sport claims that Manchester City and Arsenal are interested in signing the 20-year-old.

It will come as a big blow for Liverpool if Sterling leaves in the summer. The youngster is one of the best players in the current squad and has been superb over the past two seasons or so.

In 35 Premier League appearances this campaign, Sterling has scored seven goals and created 75 chances, while having a pass accuracy of 81% and a shot accuracy of 53%.

Sky Sports claims that despite Sterling’s wish to leave, Liverpool are not interested in selling him in the summer transfer window.
