Rising Jamaican-born England star Raheem Sterling could be heading to Arsenal in a deal which would see Theo Walcott sign for Liverpool.
Walcott’s current deal expires at the end of the season and manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly prepared to cash in on the winger after seeing talks over a new contract hit the skids.
The Arsenal boss is a huge admirer of Sterling and, is reportedly prepared to offload Walcott plus £8 million pounds in his bid to sign the Sterling in January.
Earlier this month, Sterling added to the uncertainty over his Liverpool future by withdrawing a tweet that was meant to reassure Liverpool supporters.
The 17 year old who became England’s third youngest international in 100 years after making his debut against Sweden last week, sent out mixed messages on twitter by claiming he was going to sign a new deal on his 18th birthday next month – then removing the message.
It followed claims that his advisers were asking Liverpool for £50,000 pounds a week.
Walcott meanwhile is believed to be holding out for £90,000 pounds but the Arsenal hierarchy are unprepared to meet his demands.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers however expects sterling to commit his long-term future to the Anfield Club.
Sterling who has 18 months left to run on his current contract has so far made 11 Premier League starts and has a goal and four assists.
