Sturridge considering Chelsea future

Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge could be ready to quit Stamford Bridge after frustrations grew over Andre Villas-Boas’ decision to play him as a wide forward, The Sun reports.

The 22 year old has a year left on his current deal with the club, but is concerned at the current problems on and off the field with Chelsea. Sturridge is desperate to be given a chance as a central striker and has 10 goals this season for the Blues. Compared with Fernando Torres’ four, the England international believes the statistics clearly prove he should be given the chance to play as a main striker.

Sturridge’s father expressed his concerns over the situation and now a source close to the striker has spoken about Sturridge’s plans. Chelsea are in a current slump in fifth place and have collected just 12 points out of their last possible 30 with Villas-Boas’ future still up for debate.

A source said: ‘Daniel will be distraught if Chelsea finish outside the top four — he’s desperate to prove himself at the highest level and that means he wants Champions League football, not Europa League.’
