Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling is unlikely to consider securing a transfer to Tottenham or Arsenal, according to the Telegraph. 

Sterling, 26, could be heading towards the exit door at the Etihad Stadium this summer as he enters the final year of his City contract (Transfermarkt). 

The England international has seen his game time plummet under Pep Guardiola which has led him to consider his future at the end of the Three Lions’ Nations League stint this summer (ESPN). 

The Telegraph claims Chelsea are displaying the biggest interest out of the English sides, while Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also in the picture. 

It is added that a move back to his birthplace of London could entice Sterling, who was offered in a part-exchange deal to Tottenham to sign Harry Kane last year (Mirror), although the report states a move to North London is not under consideration. 

Spurs allegedly have Sterling on a shortlist of transfer targets this summer with head coach Antonio Conte thought to be a fan of the former Liverpool winger, but questions remain whether the club can afford the financials behind a potential deal (Telegraph). 

Sterling joined City in a £49 million move in 2015 and has scored 131 goals in 339 appearances for the club (Transfermarkt). 

Spurs Web Opinion 

Sterling’s lack of regular game time has really seen people forget how much of a good asset he can be for any club in Europe. 

He would definitely be a fantastic option for Tottenham to bring in, but the costs of completing a deal are just going to be too much and unrealistic for the club.
