Chelsea are one of a number of teams interested in Raheem Sterling but will not meet Liverpool's valuation of Sterling, which stands at £50m.
Sterling is a very sought after player at the moment so we won't be surprised if someone pays £50m for him, and it will be interesting to see if Chelsea budge on their self-imposed limit. Sterling is a great player and is only 20 years of age, so a £50m valuation is not out of the question considering he is only bound to improve from here on out. He has the potential to be one of the top 5 or 10 players in the league within the next few years and any team that gets him will be making a move in the right direction. Jun 24 - 10:06 AM

Raheem Sterling should be aware that The Etihad hasn’t been the happiest of hunting grounds for Englishmen in recent years…

On the face of it, Raheem Sterling ticks all the boxes for Man City this summer. He is young, English, has proved himself in the BPL and wants to play in the Champions League. But then so did Jack Rodwell, Scott Sinclair and Richard Wright. Sterling will be the first Englishman since the three mentioned to pass through the revolving door at City back in the summer of 2012. Rodwell arrived from Everton for £12 million, played seven times and joined Sunderland last summer. Sinclair cost £4 million less but managed five matches less before being shipped out to Aston Villa in January. Goalkeeper Wright joined on a free transfer after brief spells at Sheffield United, Ipswich (his third) and Preston. He is yet to make an appearance, but has been retained for another year as back up to Joe Hart and Willy Caballero. Raheem will hope he is not sat next to him all season.

Liverpool have told Man City to double their £25 million bid for unsettled winger Raheem Sterling

Liverpool’s valuation of Raheem Sterling has dropped from ‘not available at any price’ a month ago, to £60 million last week and now down to £50 million. With the final figure likely to settle at somewhere between that and the £25 million currently on the table from City. Liverpool would resist any deal with bitter rivals Man United and Arsenal already have a surplus of lightweight attacking midfielders, so Chelsea are the only real competition City face for Sterling’s signature (in the PL, at least). Plus, Joe Hart is currently the only Englishman in the first-team squad and has been quoted as saying that UEFA’s home-grown rules means bringing in English players is ‘top of the list’ at City, following the departure of Milner and Lampard.

A £25 million bid for Raheem Sterling is ‘imminent’ as Man City re-stock their home-grown quota.

Raheem Sterling and Man City look an increasingly good fit, as the PL runners-up have already lost ‘home grown’ Frank Lampard, James Milner and ‘club-grown’ Derek Boyata this summer. This means their Champions League squad could be down to just 20, after last year’s financial fair play punishment cut their numbers to just 21. City welcome back Marcos Lopes, Jason Denayer and Karim Rekik after loan spells and rising academy stars like Pozo could be added to the mix, but we can expect to see the City cheque book come out – with Sterling the outstanding home-grown option. England manager Roy Hodgson said Sterling required ‘thicker skin’ after he was roundly booed in the Republic of Ireland friendly. But a City move would be more palatable for Liverpool fans than to neighbors United, which has also been mooted.

ESPNFC.com is reporting that they have sources that have indicated that Liverpool would be willing to swap Raheem Sterling for Theo Walcott and Kieran Gibbs.

The swap is an interesting one for both sides. Liverpool, potentially smarting from losing one top level player for cash last summer and not doing exceptionally well spending that cash, might be interested in a deal that yields them a potential 15 goal, 10 assist man (Walcott's 2012-13 stats in 24 PL starts) along with an upgrade at left back. Arsenal would have to find a replacement at reserve left back but would presumably jump at the chance to bring in a younger, and in some eyes more talented version of Walcott. It is a rare transfer window rumor that actually makes some level of sense for both sides even if swap deals almost never actually come to pass.

Raheem Sterling is thought to be wanting away from Anfield this summer as headlines in the UK press are saying that he has already put in a request.

According to Sterling's agent, "The story has been blown out of proportion", but let it be known that the his client and Liverpool will be meeting to discuss the matter later in the week. The young star has two years remaining on his current contract but apparently rejected an extension that came with a £100,000-a-week paycheck earlier in the season. Rumors have already associated him with Manchester City, Arsenal and Bayern Munich. Sterling is still very young and has carved out a role for himself with the legendary club. A move could very well backfire for him.

Liverpool climb to within four points of Manchester City for the final Champions League spot with a 2-0 win over Newcastle United.

Liverpool's domination of Newcastle continued this evening though for a while the Magpies game them a fight. The stage was set early though as Raheem Sterling scored in the 9th minute. Jordan Henderson sent a long pass to the speedster who had space on the left. Defenders closed down quickly but he sliced his way between them and lifted a shot into the far corner. He and Phillipe Coutinho were causing the Magpies problems for a stretch but eventually Newcastle showed some threat, especially toward the end of the half but couldn't finish. Sterling missed a chance to go up 2-0 in the 50th minute but a goal from Joe Allen and a sending off of Moussa Sissoko quickly put the Reds into a comfortable position. They have a blank in the PL for Week 33 but have a nice set of games lined up for the run in.

Raheem Sterling expects to be available for Liverpool's important match against Arsenal this weekend despite an early exit from the Three Lions for a toe injection.

The injection is supposed to heal damaged tissue in the area around the speedster's toe. Unless there is an unexpected setback between now and Saturday, one would imagine that based on the crucial nature of the upcoming match, Brendan Rodgers will name Sterling to his XI. With Daniel Sturridge already sidelined, the odds of Mario Balotelli getting a start are increasing by the day.

Raheem Sterling has returned to training for Liverpool as the Reds prepare to face off against Besiktas on Thursday.

Things are looking good for the Reds attack as Sterling will be looking to join Daniel Sturridge to start in the same game for the first time since Week 3. The club is still assessing the fitness of Steven Gerrard though, so they may not be at complete full strength when they take on Southampton Sunday. Still, with the play of Phillipe Coutinho, the Reds have plenty of threat to their game right now. A trip to St. Mary's will be a test for them though, so investment is risky this week for Sterling and company.

Liverpool have been dealt a huge blow ahead of Tuesdays’ crucial clash against Tottenham with the news that Raheem Sterling has failed to recover from the foot injury he picked up during last weekends’ Merseyside bore-draw.

Brendan Rodgers had been confident that Sterling along with Philippe Coutinho [knee] and Adam Lallana [groin] would be passed fit for the clash at Anfield today but news broke around lunchtime [GMT] that the Liverpool forward had failed a late test. The absence of Sterling may be enough to convince Rodgers that Daniel Sturridge will get his first start since last August having recently recovered from calf and thigh problems. Liverpool cannot afford any slip-ups if they do hope to break into the top 4 this season as defeat could leave them up to 8 points off a Champions League qualifying spot.

Raheem Sterling is back from his break and ready to trouble Aston Villa this weekend.

Brendan Rodgers will be delighted that Liverpool were able to win both their matches while Sterling took a nice winter holiday in the Caribbean, and the striker is back in training and should take back the striker spot from Fabio Borini for the trip to Aston Villa. As always, Sterling’s pace, direct running and trickery will present the opposition’s defenders a host of problems and we expect a big week from the young man.

Raheem Sterling is enjoying an extended break in Jamaica and will not play against Sunderland this weekend.

The England starlet has been in the West Indies recharging his batteries after Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers gave him a midwinter holiday. Sterling was born in Kingston on the Caribbean island and lived there until moving to England at the age of four. He has already missed Monday’s 2-1 FA Cup victory over AFC Wimbledon and he will not play against Sunderland this weekend. The 20-year-old forward is due back at Liverpool’s Melwood training ground next week, with Rodgers hoping he will be re-energized after a gruelling season for club and country. Sterling’s absence means there have been no further talks on his new contract offer from Liverpool. Rodgers is desperate to persuade him to stay and fend off strong interest from Real Madrid.

Raheem Sterling led the line for Liverpool and helped the Reds to three much-needed points with the only goal of the match as they earned a 0-1 road win against Burnley.

It was one moment of magic from the Reds today but they will happily take the points even though their attack still has much to improve upon. Burnley were the better side in the first half and were at least equal to Liverpool over 90 minutes, but the one moment bit them. Phillipe Coutinho collected a loose ball as Pool pushed toward the Claret goal, and he flicked a smart pass to Sterling who used his pace to knife through the defense and dance around the keeper to finish smartly with his sixth league goal this season. Call it a coincidence, but the Reds first win since Week 14 against Leicester. Pool need to do better than to only collect wins against promoted sides and will face a tougher test against Swansea on Sunday.

Raheem Sterling can help Liverpool get back to winning ways as the Reds head to Burnley's Turf Moor on Boxing Day.

Brendan Rodgers has changed Liverpool’s system in recent matches and this switch has Sterling playing as the main striker, which is always a huge bonus when a player is listed as a midfielder in a fantasy game. Sterling had been going through a difficult spell over the past month or so but this new position has the England man looking a genuine goal threat again and he’s an extremely tempting option for Week Eighteen as the Reds travel to Burnley.

Liverpool suffered perhaps their most frustrating result of the season, losing 3-0 at Old Trafford to Manchester United as the season for the two sides continues to head in opposite directions.

"Frustrating" is a common description for a result that goes bad in the Premier League, but there really is no better word for what the Reds endured today. They came out on the front foot, and Raheem Sterling used his pace to sneak himself into high percentage scoring positions but he was denied by David De Gea early and often and though Pool had the game on paper, United were in control 2-0 at the half. The missed opportunities for Raheem Sterling shifted to Mario Balotelli, who came on as a substitute in the second half and proceeded to, well, be Mario Balotelli -- show massive flair, come up empty and pick up a silly yellow card in the process. Today's result was a reflection of the two biggest names in the league last year no longer around - Luis Suarez, which has turned Pool from title contenders into mid-table mediocrity and David Moyes, who's epic fail of a season at Old Trafford can be forgotten about as van Gaal rights the ship.
