Ian Wright: These three Arsenal players would have to improve if Raheem Sterling signs


Arsenal legend Ian Wright says Raheem Sterling would add a dose of healthy competition in the Arsenal team if he joins from Liverpool.

The 20-year-old is a market transfer target for the Gunners according to reports and the 51-year-old believes he would be a very good signing for boss Arsene Wenger.

"I think he'd give Santi Cazorla a run for his money," Wright is quoted as saying by HITC Sport.

"I think he'd give [Aaron] Ramsey a run and I think he'd give Theo Walcott a run.

"You want that calibre of player in your team so they would then have to raise their standard of play as well."

Last month, Wright wrote that the winger's decision to leave Anfield is the correct one.

"The only thing people can point their finger at is that Raheem has maybe not done as well for Liverpool this year as they would have liked him to," Wright wrote in The Sun.

"But I can still totally see where he is coming from in wanting to leave.

"It's his prerogative. If in your mind you feel like it won't happen for you at a club then it's best to move on.

"What has he honestly done wrong apart from saying he does not want to sign a contract?"
