Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling has been linked with an exit from Anfield since rejecting a new contract at the club this season, and latest reports suggest that the England international could, incredibly, see his contract out to force through a free transfer to Arsenal.
His contract is set to expire at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.
The Gunners have been heavily linked with Sterling since the 20-year-old admitted his flattery, in an interview with BBC Sport, over rumours suggesting Arsene Wenger was interested in his signature.
Liverpool value the youngster at a whopping £50m, and according to reports, Wenger would be happy to meet this valuation for the talented forward.
However, it seems the Frenchman could be in for some dream news, as the Metro claim that Sterling could frustrate the Reds by seeing out the two seasons left on his current deal, and leave for nothing – to a club of his choosing.
The Metro make the point that if the winger chooses to wait until his contract expires, Arsenal, with no hefty transfer fee to contend with, would be able to meet his likely huge wage demands.
