Jurgen Klopp’s reported stance over Daniel Sturridge could affect West Ham plan

Daniel Sturridge scores the first goal for Liverpool

West Ham United have been linked with Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge in the summer transfer window.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp does not want to sell Daniel Sturridge in the summer transfer window, according to The Mirror.

It has been reported that Klopp will not part company with Sturridge as it would be too costly to replace him.

The German coach reportedly believes that it would cost more to sign a replacement striker than the money he would get by selling the England international.

The Mirror has claimed that Paris Saint-Germain and West Ham United are interested in signing the 27-year-old striker.

Klopp’s (reported) stance over Sturridge could be a blow for the Hammers, who have been linked with the former Chelsea and Manchester City striker for quite a while.

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic stated his interest in the striker back in April, as reported by The Liverpool Echo, and it now seems that they will have to look elsewhere for a striker.

The Hammers need to sign a proven Premier League goalscorer this summer in order to break into the top 10 of the Premier League next season.
