Raheem Sterling is reportedly set to restart talks with Manchester City over a new contract.

The 26-year-old has two years left on his contract and has been linked with a move to Arsenal and Tottenham, according to the Daily Mail, who quote the Sun.

Sterling struggled to get into Pep Guardiola's starting XI on a few occasions last season, giving rise to speculation that he could be on his way out the club in the summer.

The England international handled the last round of contract talks with City himself after splitting from his agent, but was unable to reach an agreement. However, the report adds that Sterling remains a part of Guardiola's plans for the new season despite the arrival of Jack Grealish from Aston Villa.

Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo is keen to bolster his attacking ranks this summer, as Harry Kane continues to be linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium, while Mikel Arteta is also looking to beef up his forward line.

Sterling has scored an impressive 114 goals in 292 games for the Premier League champions, and could be available for £80million this summer, according to reports. He was also touted to be used as a part of a player plus cash deal for Kane, but Sterling has effectively ruled himself out, insisting that his future lies with City.
