Transfer balls: Sterling to Arsenal, Walcott to Liverpool, Reus to everywhere

Transfer balls looks at the Daily Mirror’ s lead story: Raheem Sterling could be leaving Liverpool for life at Arsenal. Recalling how well things went when Arsenal last tried to buy a Liverpool player a failed bid of £40m plus £1 for Luis Suarez  – investigating the veracity of this story seems worthwhile.

John Cross reminds readers that former QPR starlet Sterling has yet to sign a new deal at Liverpool. He says a raft of big clubs are after the player, mentioning Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Manchester City. Cross then states that “City will make a big bid” for the England player.

That’s pretty much the entire back-page news story. It continues two pages inside, with Cross saying that “Arsenal are serious contenders” and have made “discreet enquiries about Sterling’s availability”.  Given that the Gunners’ apparent discretions are back-page news, you wonder what form the club’s enquiries took: a word in the ear of the  Mirror’s Arsenal reporter, perhaps?
