The pair, 20 and 19 respectively, were born exactly a year apart and are considered to be two of the brightest talents at Anfield.
While Sterling is already an established first-team player, Ibe has broken into the senior set-up in the last few months after being re-called from a loan spell at Championship side Derby County.
Although considered to be stars for the future by Brendan Rodgers, both players’ contract situations are unclear, with the elder holding off discussions until this summer, while the latter is thought to have rejected a £25,000-per-week offer.
And this has alerted Arsenal and Chelsea, who, according to reports, are keen on both.
The pair are both home grown stars, which could help the Gunners and the Blues in fulfilling Premier League quotas.
