Three Premier League clubs are reportedly in the mix to sign <strong>Raheem Sterling </strong>if he decides to leave Manchester City. The 26-year-old England international has said he is “open” to leaving the Etihad after only starting two Premier League games this season. The Express says the forward could end up at Arsenal, Newcastle or back at Liverpool, with Real Madrid also said to be interested.

What the papers say

The Mirror reports Jesse Lingard is ready to leave Old Trafford to improve his chances of being selected for England ahead of next year’s World Cup. AC Milan and Barcelona are understood to be monitoring the midfielder, 28, who wants more game time than Manchester United are offering.

The opportunity to be a club’s main man might be enough to tempt Timo Werner away from Chelsea, according to the Mail. The paper cites German outlet Bild as saying Newcastle have contacted the Germany striker’s agent about a possible transfer in January.

Another potential move at the start of 2022 involves England Under-21s player Ryan Sessegnon. The Sun reports Fenerbahce are considering signing Tottenham’s 21-year-old midfielder.
