Fulham and Arsenal fight over Sterling

Fulham are set to join Arsenal in the race to sign QPR wonderkid Raheem Sterling, according to the Mirror.

Fulham want to sign the lightning-quick striker, who turned 15 last December, on a £1.5 million deal in the summer, with a number of add-ons if the player fulfils his potential. Sterling has also interested Arsene Wenger, who has ordered academy director Liam Brady to snap up the youngster. Manchester United, Chelsea and Man City are other clubs that have registered their interest in the England U-16 international in the past.

Dubbed as the “new Theo Walcott”, Sterling is yet to make his QPR debut, but won’t beat the Football League record set by Barnsley’s Reuben Noble-Lazarus, who made his debut aged 15 years and 45 days last season.
