The 20 year old England man’s demand to be the Anfield side’s top earner isn’t one the Merseyside outfit will entertain and as such the Premier League side will look to cash-in on the player.
The Independent confirms that both Man City and Arsenal are keen on Sterling, who turned down a treble-your-money contract worth £100k a week, and that Liverpool refuse to be held to ransom by the former QPR youth team graduate.
Brendan Rodgers has seen Sterling mature into a hugely talented prospect, successfully converting the wide-man into a central striking weapon for portions of the current campaign, but the Independent claims Liverpool feel the youngster already sees his future elsewhere.
Sterling’s current contract expires in the summer of 2016 and as such the clock is ticking in regards to his valuation, another factor that will apparently lead to Liverpool readying moves to accept big offers for the forward.
Raheem Sterling is Liverpool’s joint top scorer this season, with ten goals in all competitions, and has made a total of 120 appearances for the club.
