Arsenal remain interested in signing Raheem Sterling despite City’s reluctance to sell.

The Gunners were reportedly interested in signing Sterling last summer but City rejected the proposal.

With Sanchez looking increasingly unlikely to sign a new contract at Arsenal, Wenger has begun searching for replacements and Sterling features highly on the boss’ wish list.

Guardiola has been adamant that the in-form England international will not be allowed to leave the Etihad in the January transfer window but the BBC via Sports Mole say Wenger hasn’t given up hope of signing Sterling.

The report says a switch between both clubs could be on the cards, with  Arsenal set to step up Sterling’s pursuit after being impressed with his performance this season.

However, they say we may find it difficult to convince Guardiola to let the former Liverpool man leave.

Sterling is highly rated amongst those at the corridors of the Etihad and not just Guardiola but everyone at City would want to keep him.

Wenger recently criticized Sterling after Arsenal’s loss to Man City last month for a perceived dive but apparently that hasn’t affected his interest in anyway.
