Arsenal have been accused of "tapping up" Manchester City's Raheem Sterling.

Sterling was linked with a move to the Emirates in the summer as Arsenal tried to include him in a deal for Alexis Sanchez.

City refused and Sterling has impressed so far this term, scoring three times in six games.

Arsenal remain keen on the England international and could revisit the situation in January.

But former Manchester United and Scotland striker Alan Brazil is unimpressed over the recent developments, reports the Manchester Evening News.
