The Mirror is claiming Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is entertaining the option of selling Daniel Sturridge.
The Reds are said to be willing to cash in on the striker who has made only three starts this season due to a succession of injury issues, if a bid comes in for £25 million.
Sturridge may be seen as an injury liability at present, but when he is fit he is effective in front of goal, netting 44 goals in 72 games for the club.
Any side willing to make him their main frontman would be taking a risk, but this is why for Tottenham Hotspur, meeting Liverpool's asking price is a no-brainer, considering this is the amount they offered for Saido Berahino in the summer.
On his day Sturridge is among England's best strikers, and while fitness issues have been ongoing for the last 18 months, the deal would work for Tottenham because he would not be required to play every game thanks to Harry Kane being the team's first choice forward.
This would allow Spurs to play him sparingly and manage his fitness sensibly without pressure, and when fit, the former Chelsea striker could forge an outstanding partnership with Kane which could be replicated at international level.
For Liverpool to make such a sale to a rival would be a big mistake, as Sturridge's luck could very easily turn, and suddenly be back at full fitness after his sale.
As far as Tottenham go he is a gamble worth taking, is proven in the Premier League, and like the core of their squad, is English, and could even go on to help the club challenge for the title.
