Report: Liverpool ready to cash in on striker Daniel Sturridge

Daniel Sturridge

Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge has barely featured this season.

According to the Mirror, Liverpool are contemplating selling striker Daniel Sturridge as his injury problems continue to hinder his chances of playing regularly for the club.

The British newspaper claims that the Reds are growing tired of their striker’s lack of appearances for the Anfield club, and they are now prepared to listen to offers in the region of £25million.

“Daniel Sturridge is battling to save his Liverpool career. Klopp has become increasingly frustrated with his injury record and Liverpool are ready to listen to offers of around £25million,” the report states.

Sturridge missed the bulk of last season with one particular injury, although this time round it has been a succession of different setbacks that have restricted the striker’s playing time.

There is little doubting the former Chelsea man’s ability up front, with renowned pundit Jamie Carragher writing in a previous column for the Daily Mail that only Sergio Aguero is better in the Premier League,

However, with just three top flight appearances to his name this season, Sturridge is rapidly being remembered for the amount of injuries he is picking up rather than the amount of goals he is scoring.

The Reds are in desperate need of added firepower up front, with their 22 goals scored in 20 league appearances a club record low in the modern Premier League era.

Jurgen Klopp needs dependable players who can provide the club with consistent quality, yet Sturridge thus far has proved to be anything but reliable as he spends most of his days on the treatment table.

That said, the England international striker has scored 44 goals in 72 matches since his arrival at Anfield.
