Report: Liverpool willing to sell Sturridge for half of initial £15m asking price

Premier League giants Liverpool are reportedly hoping to sell Daniel Sturridge this summer but where will the former England striker end up?

It is a sad state of affairs that a fee of £15 million looks far too pricy for Daniel Sturridge in today’s market.

The Telegraph reported earlier in June that Liverpool are ready to sell the out-of-favour striker this summer and had slapped a £15 million price-tag on his head.

That is hardly an eye-watering fee in 2018. Middlesbrough paid the same price to sign Britt Assombalonga last year after all. But it seems that relentless injury problems and a sharp decline in form has severely damaged Sturridge’s reputation.

Fanatik are reporting that Liverpool are yet to receive a single offer for the 28-year-old and have therefore decided to slash his price-tag by half. Any interested club, if there is any out there, can now hope to sign Sturridge for around £7.5 million.

Fanatik understand that Besiktas are considering a move and are set for talks with Liverpool though it is uncertain whether this would be a permanent or temporary deal.

Since scoring 21 goals in 26 starts during that thrilling 2013/14 season at Anfield, Sturridge has been included in the XI just 30 times in the Premier League for The Reds.

A hamstring injury restricted him to just six games on loan at West Brom from January to May, during which the former Chelsea and Manchester City striker failed to score a single goal.
