Liverpool keen on Sturridge signing

Bookmark and Share

By Bryan Waters

Sunday 10 June 2012

New Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is looking to make his first signing in his Anfield regime by going back to former club Chelsea and bringing in Daniel Sturridge, The Daily Star reports.

Rodgers took over the club last week and saw Dirk Kuyt leave Anfield for a move to Fenerbahce, which he insists was nothing to do with Rodgers’ appointment. The former Swansea manager is now looking to replace the Dutch international and sees 22 year old Sturridge as a great signing to fire Liverpool back to glory.

Sturridge could be offered a new deal by Chelsea before the end of the summer, but his future at Stamford Bridge is not certain after a bit-part role under Roberto di Matteo. Sturridge’s father blasted the Blues earlier this season for not capitalising on Sturridge’s potential as a striker and now a move to Liverpool could favour the Blues forward, who started his career in the North West with Manchester City.

The 22 year old could be the perfect fit to a strikeforce which would include Craig Bellamy, Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez. Other sides are interested in Sturridge, including former side City as manager Roberto Mancini is curious why Sturridge was sold in the first place. Liverpool will have to move quickly to sign Sturridge, who they tried to bring in to Anfield when Fernando Torres switched to Chelsea in a £50m move in January 2011.

Do try to keep your feet on the ground. Sturridge is NOT actually for sale so why all the chatter about him fitting in or not? There are more avenues open to rectify the lack of striker power instead of hanging on for weeks and weeks in any situation that simply is not going to come about. It's called wasting time!
