Montero confirmed that he will departing Liga MX this summer and expects a deal to be wrapped up in the near future.

"It’s certain that I’ll leave the league, but let’s see where I’ll go. We expect to sort it out within the next few days," he told ESPN Deportes.

"I already have an offer, the club are handling it. Let’s see where I’ll go but for now I have some days off.

When pushed for further details, Montero added: "I can tell you that it won’t be Mexico. It will be Europe and thank God we are working on it, I hope it works out."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
