According to current reports, Sterling does not want to extend his current contract, which expires in 2023, due to his limited playing opportunities and is instead considering a loan move away from Manchester City.
According to these reports, he prefers to stay in the Premier League, which is why many believe Arteta has the best chance of acquiring him. According to the Manchester Evening News, which cited The Transfer Window Podcast, Ian McGray revealed this as Sterling's situation.
"It’s the case that his representatives have met with Man City and are saying their player does not wish to continue or indeed explore an extension to his contract.
Instead, they would prefer to explore the option of a loan deal, which they would like to begin in the January window. Whether or not that’s possible remains to be seen, but there are several interested parties, including Arsenal. "
As seen during the Euros, Sterling, even at 26, still has what it takes to wreak havoc on opposing defenses. As a result, Sterling's move to Arsenal will be a major coup for the Gunners, as he is the type of winger Arteta is looking for for his less dominant wings. But do you think the Arteta-Sterling reunion will happen this January?
