Arsenal interested in Sterling, ‘closing in’ on Gabriel Jesus 

Arsenal are interested in signing Manchester City striker Raheem Sterling if he becomes available this summer.

Sterling is entering the final year of his current deal and has named Arsenal the England international according to The Telegraph.

With manager Mikel Arteta linked with a new deal, Arsenal are preparing for a busy summer as they look to sign Yuri Tillmans and Gabriel Jesus.

Arteta is looking for firepower to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, whose contract has expired.

The 27-year-old is on the cusp of entering his final year under contract at the federation with Arsenal ready to pounce.

Arsenal are also close to signing Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus, The Sun reports.

The 25-year-old Brazilian has 141 goals in 234 games for City, but could be allowed to leave the FA to avoid losing on a free transfer with his contract expiring in 2023.

His match is also likely to become limited as City prepare to complete the signing of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

Haaland is understood to have already passed the medical, with an announcement regarding the transfer expected this week.
