We are reportedly competing with Chelsea for the signatures of Liverpool duo Raheem Sterling and Jordan Ibe, with the pacy pair linked with a move away from Anfield this summer, as reported by the Daily Star.
The two English youngsters have already been offered new deals, but the Daily Star claim that as of yet, neither have accepted.
Sterling has allegedly turned down a £100,000 per week deal, with the report revealing that the talented star has been heavily linked with a move to either us, Chelsea, or Manchester City.
They go on to say that Ibe has been offered a meagre-by-comparison £25,000 per week, but that his representatives are demanding at least double that.
This has lead to speculation that the promising young players could leave the club this summer, with Arsene Wenger interested in signing both.

Sterling has been linked with us in the past, and there was allegedly a swap deal in place that would have seen Theo Walcott head in the other direction (via the Daily Star).
Both players would be excellent additions, although the transfer fees involved could potentially be huge. There are arguably other areas of the squad that we should be prioritising, but if they were to become available this summer then it could prove too good of an opportunity to pass up.
