Some Manchester City fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to speculation that Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal want to sign Raheem Sterling.
What’s the story?
The Daily Star have reported that Arsenal are closely monitoring the situation of Sterling at Premier League champions City.
Talks between City and Sterling over a new contract are going slowly.
The former Liverpool star has lost his place in manager Pep Guardiola’s starting lineup.
Arsenal manager Arteta worked with the 26-year-old attacking midfielder when he was a coach at City.
What are Manchester City fans saying?
As you can see from the tweets below, City fans are open to the prospect of selling Sterling.
Well, some of them anyway.
Some City fans want Emile Smith Rowe or Bukayo Saka in exchange for Sterling, who can also operate as a winger.
Now, that is not going to happen.
Arsenal are simply not going to sell Smith Rowe or Saka.
Would Sterling be a good signing for Arsenal?
Yes, of course.
The England international is one of the best players in the world and has improved a lot since he left Liverpool for City, especially in his finishing.
The City no. 7 scored 18 goals in the league for City in 2017-18, 17 in 2018-19, 20 in 2019-20 and 10 in 2020-21.
