talkSPORT pundit Tony Cascarino has claimed that Jurgen Klopp hasn't done Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge 'any favours' amid reports that Leicester City and West Ham United want to sign him. 

The Daily Mail claims that the Hammers have discussed potentially signing Sturridge in the summer as Manuel Pellegrini aims to bolster his squad. 

Added with that, the Sun report that Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to reunite with Sturridge, who last hit real form under his stewardship.


Speaking to Weekend Breakfast on talkSPORT (14/04/2019 at 8:45 am), Cascarino was asked about the Sturridge speculation as he explained why his manager hasn't really helped him out. 

"It hasn't done him any favours because Jurgen Klopp has used Sturridge and then sort of fell out of favour," Cascarino told talkSPORT. "Then Origi has become more of a substitution likely than Sturridge."

The Reds are chasing the Premier League title this season and they are also in the quarter-finals on the Champions League, with a 2-0 first-leg lead over Porto.

Sturridge has played little part in both tournaments, but he will be hoping to do his bit as Liverpool require that extra push in their quest for glory.

At this moment in time, they are sitting top of the Premier League table after beating Chelsea on Sunday and are on course to reach the semi-finals of the European Cup.
