Photos: Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling following Manchester City medical

The England international is said to have completed a medical at the Etihad Stadium today, as a move away from Anfield nears.

Raheem Sterling looks to be one step closer to a move away from Liverpool, with the above photo emerging of the England international after undertaking a medical at Manchester City.

Respected BBC Sport journalist David Ornstein published the photos on his Twitter account, with it seemingly just a matter of time before the talented youngster leaves Anfield and links up with Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

Sterling has made his desire to leave the Merseyside club clear for some time now, with the England international admitting earlier in the year that he had spurned the offer of a new deal with Brendan Rodgers’ men.

City are in the market for homegrown players and have clearly identified Sterling as a player to bolster their attacking ranks, with mere formalities seemingly the only thing left before he becomes a member of the Etihad Stadium playing squad.

An attacking trident of Sterling, David Silva and Sergio Aguero promises to be a frightening proposition for opposition defences next term, as City fight to win back the Premier League title.

Liverpool have signed Roberto Firmino as a potential replacement for the wantaway star, but face the prospect of losing their best player for the second consecutive summer.
