Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are stunned by the figures flying round the Tavern after the London Evening Standard revealed that Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling could cost up to £75m.
The England international has come under heavy scrutiny since the end of the season as he has been labeled greedy after failing to agree a deal with the Reds.
Manchester City have supposedly made the first move for the youngster with a bid in the region of £30m.
But this has been submitted to test the waters of the officials at Anfield and it seems inevitable that the price will rise, after all he is currently valued at £50m by the Reds.
This money is beyond the amount Arsene Wenger is willing to spend and the punters predict that this will open the door for the likes of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich who are expected to spend big this summer.
