Why Tottenham could best Arsenal in race for Raheem Sterling

Reports emerging this week suggest that Tottenham have joined north London rivals Arsenal in the race of Manchester City and England standout, Raheem Sterling.

Arsenal are in need of some fresh legs up front this summer with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang having already left the club in January and Alexandre Lacazette expected to leave for free next month.

And earlier this week it was claimed that Arsenal were ready to explore a deal to sign Raheem Sterling from City this summer:

However, Tottenham are also said to be interested in the winger and, somewhat bizarrely, it is suggested that Spurs actually have the advantage over their city rivals.

This comes with Sterling wanting to play under Antonio Conte, with Tottenham also giving him guarantees about style and position:

On paper, though, guarantees over style and positioning favouring Tottenham seem odd.

This comes with Sterling a natural left-winger and the Lilywhites already having Heung-min Son for that spot.

And, on style specifically, it is fairly obvious that Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are much closer stylistically to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City than Tottenham are under Conte.
