Arsenal chases prestigious talent, but is he worth it?
Raheem Sterling is a target for Arsenal according to the Sun. And the London club could be making a shock move in the January transfer window for the highly-rated young man, in which they use contract rebel Theo Walcott as part of the deal due to the stalling of his negotiations.
Arsenal are ready to offer Liverpool Theo Walcott plus £8million for superkid Raheem Sterling
The shock swap deal follows months of negotiations between Arsenal and the 23-year-old England winger
Arsenal have been unwilling to meet Walcott’s wage demands — believed to be £90,000 a week.
They have so far come up around £10,000 a week short, while Walcott also wants to know whether Wenger plans to play him as a central striker. (The Sun)
Many Gunners fans will be sick to the stomach at the prospect of one of their best stars leaving the club and being replaced by a 17-year-old who has burst onto the scene. Sterling is going to be great but he isn’t worth Walcott and the money.
