Liverpool are interested in bringing Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling back to Anfield, according to Bild’s Christian Falk, as cited by Anfield Edition’s Twitter account.

Between 2012-15, the Englishman scored 23 goals and registered 25 assists in 129 appearances for the Reds. Come the summer of 2015, Sterling made it clear that he wanted to depart Anfield.

Liverpool ended up selling the forward to the Citizens for a transfer fee of €63.70 million back in July 2015.

Despite that being the case, the Reds could reportedly look to re-sign Sterling at some stage.

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

Sterling has developed into a serious player. The Englishman has found the back of the net 115 times and registered 89 assists in 304 appearances for Manchester City.

Therefore, we would certainly entertain the idea of the club re-signing him.

The forward would add depth and quality to Liverpool’s squad. Sterling’s career isn’t coming to an end anytime soon.

The 26-year-old is reportedly open to leaving Manchester City due to a lack of playing time in the early parts of the 2021-22 campaign.

However, Sterling will cost Liverpool a bit of money. The winger’s contract does not expire until the summer of 2023.

Transfermarkt value Sterling at €90 million. But, he would be worth the hefty transfer fee for the aforementioned reasons.
