Arsenal will make a second attempt to sign Raheem Sterling from Manchester City in the January transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that Arsene Wenger remains keen on trying to lure the 22-year-old to The Emirates as the Frenchman looks to bolster his attacking options.

Arsenal were heavily linked with a move to sign Sterling during the final few days of the summer transfer window, as he was touted as potential makeweight in the proposed deal for Manchester City to sign Alexis Sanchez.

However, it seems that Wenger has not given up hope of signing the former Liverpool star if the latest reports are to be believed.

Arsenal are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks as the January transfer window draws ever nearer.

Sterling was on the winning side when Manchester City beat Arsenal 3-1 in their most recent Premier League game before the international break, to leave the Gunners 12 points behind Pep Guardiola’s men in the race for the Premier League title.

Arsenal finished fifth in the Premier League last season but won the FA Cup for the third time in four years.
