Raheem Sterling’s agent reveals stance on summer move away from Chelsea amid Arsenal interest

The Chelsea man has been linked with a move just months after arriving

Raheem Sterling’s agent has dismissed speculation linking Raheem Sterling with a move away from Stamford Bridge just a year after he joined as ‘false’, claiming that the England attacker is ‘committed’ to the west London side.

Sterling made the switch from Premier League champions Manchester CIty to Chelsea over the summer, but it has not worked out as initially planned.

Injury has restricted him to just 15 Premier League starts, and he has just four goals to his name as the Blues struggle to find their way out of midtable, a far cry from expectations at the beginning of the campaign.

Chelsea have since added further firepower on the left-wing, with Mykhaylo Mudryk arriving for 70m euros from Shakhtar Donetsk, which has thrown Sterling’s future in the starting XI into doubt.

And that led to reports on Monday that Arsenal were interested in landing the former Manchester City man, with Mikel Arteta having worked with the 28-year-old during their time together at the Etihad.

However, those rumours were short-lived. Discussing her client’s future, Kelly Hogarth branded one report ‘false’ before adding:

There is set to be a massive clear out at Stamford Bridge this summer, with Graham Potter having already admitted to having too many players.

The likes of Hakim Ziyech, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Kalidou Koulibaly, Edouard Mendy, Christian Pulisic and loanees Romelu Lukaku and Callum Hudson-Odoi could all be moved on, while contract uncertainty still shrouds Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante and Mason Mount.

Chelsea face Leeds United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, hoping for just their third win in all competitions since the World Cup break.
