Last week ESPN reported that West Ham are considering weighing up a move for Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge. Premier League rivals Southampton were also thought to be keen on signing the England international.

Sturridge has dropped down the pecking order at Liverpool, and Jurgen Klopp could be willing to offload him in the January transfer window.

The 28-year-old former Chelsea striker could be looking for a move away from Anfield as well to get regular playing time.

However, with Liverpool slapping up a £30 million price tag on his shoulders, the potential suitors are struggling to meet that amount.

According to reports from the Express (printed edition; 14/01/2018 – page 40), Southampton have asked Liverpool to lower their asking price.

Also, his £150k-per-week wage package could be a sticking point for all interested parties.

The report claims that West Ham are not out of the race yet, and David Moyes wants to sign him on loan till the end of the season.

Moyes has the likes of Andy Carroll and Javier Hernandez in his ranks, but he is still looking to sign one more striker in January.
