Jamie Redknapp remarks on Daniel Sturridge – Paris Saint-Germain link

Daniel Sturridge

The Liverpool striker has recently been linked with a £50million move.

Daily Mail pundit Jamie Redknapp says Paris St Germain’s reported interest in striker Daniel Sturridge is “difficult” for Liverpool.

The striker has recently been linked with a big money move to the French champions, with the Sun claiming they are set to make a £50million bid for his services.

That comes as they seek a replacement for Sweden star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who looks set to leave the club when his contract expires in the summer.

Whether a bid will come remains to be seen and Redknapp says that a silly money offer from PSG could tempt Liverpool into selling.

“This is such a difficult one for Liverpool,” he told the Daily Mail.

“They will be desperate to make it work with Sturridge [but] if Paris Saint-Germain offer silly money then who knows?”

“I'm not surprised PSG want him and maybe the tempo in France might suit him — there isn't the same pressure as in the Premier League every week.”

Given Sturridge’s injury record in recent years a £50million bid would certainly be hard to ignore should it come in this summer.

While he seems to be over the worst of his problems since his latest return, there is no guarantee he will not break down again and be absent for large periods once more.

However, there is no denying that he is a top quality striker when fit and replacing him would be a tough ask for the club should they decide to sell.
