This Monday, The Athletic media announced that Erling Haland Y Manchester City they reached an agreement from next season. In that sense, the arrival of the Norwegian scorer will cause the departure of key men from the current squad led by Pep Guardiola. Thus, those indicated are Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesús.
On the case of the English soccer player, the portal The Telegraph indicated that Arsenal can be a great beneficiary of Haaland’s arrival at Etihad. To be more precise, the team led by Mikel Arteta is close to returning to the Champions League and needs to strengthen its lead, as the current ‘nine’ (Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah) expire in June.
Thus, the British newspaper explained that Arsenal are keen to explore a deal to sign Raheem Sterling from Manchester City this summer.. The striker for the ‘Three Lions’ team has lost prominence in recent weeks and with the Qatar 2022 World Cup just around the corner, he needs minutes to arrive in good shape.
Likewise, the player and the DT of the ‘Gunners’ have a good relationship because they already coincided in the past. As you remember, Arteta was Guardiola’s technical assistant for years in the sky blue team. What’s more, the cited source mentioned that Raheem and Mikel spent a lot of time together working at City’s facilities.
“He worked closely with Sterling during his three years at the Etihad as a member of Pep Guardiola’s squad”The Telegraph noted. For this reason, the ‘Cañoneros’ strategist has serious plans to convert one of the leaders of the ‘Three Lions’ “at the center of the ‘Gunners’ attack”.
The former Liverpool has a signed contract until mid-2023, but a few weeks ago it was reported that he put the renewal talks on hold. So, with Haaland’s arrival imminent, he can ponder a reunion with Arteta at Arsenal, a club that wants to secure a spot in the Champions League.
Gabriel Jesus, the other option
Before Sterling’s name was related to Arsenal, the English media assured that the Brazilian was part of the plans of the Londoners. At the moment, it is known that there were conversations between Edu Gaspar, sports director of the ‘Cañoneros’, with the representatives of the South American.
So, it is not ruled out that Gabriel Jesus will anchor in the Emirates in the next course. In this way, the team from the capital would add two ‘heavy’ men on offense to be protagonists in the next Premier League and, if it materializes, in the ‘Orejona’ contest.
