Arsenal are reportedly planning an approach to sign Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling this summer.

The Gunners were heavily linked with the England international last year, but nothing materialised beyond the speculation.

It is now reported that the club are back in the hunt for the Liverpool graduate, who has a year left on his Cityzens contract.

According to Calciomercato, manager Mikel Arteta is already making efforts to sign the 27-year-old, who could cost £50m.

Champions League football should provide an edge in the pursuit, but the Gunners could face stiff competition for him.

AC Milan are also weighing up a summer move and it could be aided by a big-money takeover ahead of the transfer window.

Sterling has been in-and-out of the starting line-up for City this term, but has still impressed with 16 goals and seven assists.

He was keen on joining Barcelona at one point of time, but the club are no longer in the running to secure his services.
