Arsenal are reportedly still keen to sign Manchester City striker Raheem Sterling when the transfer window reopens.

Arsenal are reportedly planning to make a fresh move to sign Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling when the transfer window reopens.

The 22-year-old was pursued by the Gunners in the final throes of the summer window as a makeweight in a deal that would have seen contract rebel Alexis Sanchez move in the opposite direction.

City boss Pep Guardiola has admitted that he vetoed the deal, saying there was "zero chance" of him swapping a player with "a lot of room to improve".

According to the Mail On Sunday, Arsene Wenger's side are undeterred despite Guardiola's stance on the former Liverpool striker and have been given encouragement by the player himself, who is allegedly "open to a return to London and the chance to play more regularly at Arsenal".

Sterling still has three years remaining on his existing deal and is said to earn around £180,000 a week at the Etihad.
