Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling has reportedly welcomed interest from Chelsea and would be happy to join the Blue as per the Daily Mail. The 20-year-old midfielder recently rejected a 100,000k per week and has said he wants more.
Liverpool and Raheem Sterling are currently deadlocked in a bitter contract negotiation, and Sterling has not hidden the fact that he is willing to push for a move away from the Merseyside club. Sterling, 20, is said to be holding out for a move back to London.
After a disappointing season, Liverpool are not willing to sell one of their top assets to rival. However, reports suggest that the club would let Raheem Sterling leave for a fee upwards of $100 million. Sterling is said to be a target of a number of top English and European clubs and recently Chelsea
Is a potential move to Chelsea a good one?
His future at Liverpool is surely over after a series of comments from Sterling and his agent that have seen the players relationship with the club breakdown beyond repair. I am of the fairly unpopular opinion that signing Sterling would be a good move for the Stamford Bridge team.
No doubt his talent is raw and needs to be developed carefully, but Sterling has world class potential and he is homegrown. He would add to our squad. Sterling’s mediocre season has seen many fans forget about his impressive 2013-14 campaign where he excelled as a teenager. At 19 he was a central figure in a team that nearly won the Premier League.
Despite all of this, I wouldn’t pay anywhere near the reported £60million asking price for him. You can get a lot more for your money. However I think we need to be ruthless in the market this summer, let’s go out and get our main transfer targets.
