The Sun this morning linked Theo and a part exchange for Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling. The article states that Wenger will offer £8m + Theo for rising star Sterling. The fact that the story says “Exclusive” at the top of the article and even says that this is potentially a “shock swap deal” should spell it out for you. There is nothing in this story whatsoever – bar the media simply speculating where Theo could end up.
Whilst I am under no illusion that Arsenal were interested in Sterling before his move to Liverpool and whilst I’m convinced that every club (including us) with some pocket money would be interested if he became available – the article itself states that Liverpool don’t want to lose him. And with no quotes (about the player) or any form of evidence to back up this story – I have to think that it is rubbish. And just before you get excited about the quote shown – I’ll direct you to this article…..
It wouldn’t surprise me at all to see Walcott end up at Liverpool – but Sterling joining us is another matter entirely.
