Liverpool slash Sturridge asking price

Liverpool have slashed their asking price for striker Daniel Sturridge as the transfer deadline creeps ever closer.

Sturridge has been the subject of plenty of speculation in recent weeks, after a frustrating season at Anfield under Jurgen Klopp.

Often labelled as one of the best and most natural finishers in the Premier League, Sturridge’s problems often come down to his frequent injury problems which have limited him to just 84 appearances in the last three-and-a-half years.

He has been linked with a move to a number of Premier League clubs, including West Ham, Southampton and Newcastle, as well as European clubs Sevilla, Inter Milan and Roma.

However a move for the England international has proved difficult due to Liverpool’s £30m valuation of the player, which thanks to those aforementioned injuries is putting many clubs off. They are willing to let the striker leave on loan for the rest of the season, but have also been demanding a £5m loan fee.

According to the Sunday Mirror however, Liverpool have now slashed their valuation in order to try to facilitate a move.

They are now just asking for £1.5m, with Inter Milan ready to make a move for the striker.

The player himself is believed to be keen on the move to the San Siro, and hopes that a string of good performances in Italy can kick start his hopes of making Gareth Southgate’s England squad for this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
