The BBC revealed that the 20-year-old is going to tell manager Brendan Rodgers that he wants to leave Anfield in the summer. This will have alerted clubs across the continent to the availability of the youngster, who won the European Golden Boy award for the best player Under 21 in Europe.

These stats make it seem like Rodgers should cash in while there is such interest in the forward. Without the England international they have an amazing 100% win record, compared to 40.4% with him. They also score two goals a game when Sterling out of the side, and 1.2 when he plays.

What’s more, on a personal level the winger has seemingly regressed since last season. Last time out he scored nine goals from 33 shots while so far this campaign the youngster has seven from 62, and he has only been successful with 44.2% of his dribbles this season compared to 59% before.

With Manchester City and Arsenal both interested in Sterling the Reds could well get a good price for their player this summer. So should they get the money and run?
