Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger refused to completely rule out a move for Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling after the Gunners glided to a 4-1 victory over their rivals, according to Rob Harris from the Associated Press.
Wenger asked if he even needs Sterling: “We have been linked by media. At the moment we are not in a transfer period at all”

After being linked with the Gunners over the past few weeks (via Evening Standard), Sterling fuelled rumours further by admitting that those links were flattering in his much publicised interview with the BBC.
Following the game, the Arsenal boss didn’t necessarily put the reports to bed, instead pointing out that the transfer window isn’t currently open and refused to discuss the story further.

Sterling was lively at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday and did well to win the penalty for Liverpool’s only goal, fronting up full-back Hector Bellerin before committing the Spaniard.
As Theo Walcott’s contract continues to run down, a swap-deal between the two has been suggested (via Daily Mail) and it maybe an interesting summer of negotiations between Liverpool and Arsenal once again.
