Reds open to Sturridge sale, but want £30m for striker

Liverpool are reportedly willing to sell Daniel Sturridge in the winter transfer window, but want £30m for the striker. Sturridge is apparently desperate for a move in order to gain more playing time before the World Cup- his last Liverpool appearance was over a month ago in the 7-0 demolition of Spartak Moscow in the Champions League.

The Reds will not stand in his way if he wants a move, but want £30m for move, with a loan switch apparently not an option at this stage of the winter transfer window.

Stoke and West Ham, who lost 4-1 to Liverpool earlier this season, are both being touted as potential destinations for the former Man City forward.

Sturridge has struggled with injuries in the last few years, lost a fair bit of the pace that made him a quality forward and didn’t feature in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the November internationals. He is also not a natural fit in Klopp’s current system, and so the Reds are open to him leaving if the right offer comes in. An injury free season would make him an attractive option to some lower clubs, and the Reds think the fee is right for a striker for his calibre.
