Raheem Sterling is reportedly tempted by the prospect of a move to Arsenal amid speculation surrounding his Manchester City future.

Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling supposedly views a potential move to Arsenal as 'extremely attractive'.

The 26-year-old is out of contract with the Premier League champions in 2023 and has struggled for regular starts this season, leading to talk of a transfer elsewhere.

Barcelona are thought to be the favourites to land Sterling in the winter transfer window, but a reunion with Mikel Arteta at the Emirates Stadium has also been mooted.

Now, journalist Ian McGarry claims that a switch to Arsenal would be of interest to the attacker, telling the Transfer Window Podcast: "It's the case that his representatives have met with Manchester City and are saying to them that their player does not wish to continue or indeed explore an extension on 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.

"We know that Sterling himself turned down the opportunity to join Tottenham Hotspur on a permanent basis last summer but the idea of moving back to London, the idea of having the guarantee, almost, of a starting place in another elite Premier League club is extremely attractive to him."

Sterling has four goals and two assists to his name from 18 appearances in all competitions this term, but he has only started five games in the Premier League.
