Arsenal ‘lead race for Man City star Raheem Sterling’

Arsenal are pushing hard to sign Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling.

The Sun says Arsenal are leading the race to sign Sterling in a deal that could see Harry Kane’s move to Manchester City scuppered.

The England winger, 26, has slipped down the pecking order under Pep Guardiola thanks to the emergence of superstar in the making Phil Foden.

Londoner Sterling nearly signed for the Gunners in the summer of 2010 while on the books of QPR’s youth team.

He could now finally move to the Emirates, with Mikel Arteta keen on him.

Arsenal would be more willing to splash out on Sterling’s wages, already paying Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang well over £300,000 per week, while previously paying Mesut Ozil £350,000 weekly.
