Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is ready to leave Anfield in January in order to boost his World Cup dream according to reports.
The striker has endured a torrid time with injuries, making just 71 appearances in the last three years – but has not lost his goalscoring touch, scoring 27 goals during that time.
However, with Jurgen Klopps preferred front three of Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firmino, Sturridge has been left the scraps. Despite being fit, he has been an unused substitute in the clubs last two games, despite scoring in each of his last two appearances against Huddersfield and Maribor.
According to the Daily Mirror, Sturridge will look to quit the club in January in order to save his dreams of going to next summers World Cup. He is yet to make one of Gareth Southgate’s squads, despite being fit, due to his lack of game time at club level.
The report claims that Sturridge is hopeful that Liverpool will put a realistic price tag on his head as to not detract potential buyers, otherwise, he is happy to go out on loan.
There are plenty of clubs looking to sign a striker this summer, and plenty who would like to add a striker of Sturridges quality.
Liverpool’s fellow Merseyside club Everton are just one of those clubs after their struggles, although whether the Reds would allow a player to move to the Blues is yet to be seen. No player has moved across Stanley Park since Gary Ablett back in 1992.
Meanwhile, West Ham have been linked with signing the the Sturridge as David Moyes looks to haul West Ham out of the relegation zone. Newcastle and Southampton are also known to be on the lookout to sign a new striker.
