will look to offer a new contract to end speculation about the winger moving to Arsenal, according to the Daily Star.

Gunners boss reportedly wants the 22 year old in exchange for Alexis Sanchez, but City boss is believed to be unwilling to let the international leave.

To reassure the player that he is still an important first team player at the Etihad stadium, the Star say that City will offer a contract extension to Sterling despite the player still having almost three years to run on his current deal.

Sterling has had an excellent start to the season in terms of goalscoring. In all competitions this campaign, the winger has five goals in seven outings, including a double in the 5-0 win over at the weekend. The arrival of Sanchez at City would no doubt reduce his game time though, and it seems Wenger believes that Guardiola could re-consider his decision to keep Sterling.
