Sturridge has been dogged with injuries in recent years but has been fit for the majority of the current campaign.

Klopp has been happy with the England international’s fitness, but Sturridge is still behind first-choice striker Roberto Firmino at Anfield.

Young Dominic Solanke has been pushing for starts and the former Chelsea and Manchester City hitman could find himself relegated to third-choice and his place in Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad in serious jeopardy.

Liverpool are in a tricky position, Klopp knows a player of Sturridge’s standing should be playing more football, but are reluctant to allow him to join another Premier League side.

Sturridge is contracted at Anfield until the summer of 2019 and with the return to fitness of Danny Ings and Adam Lallana, the Spanish sides hope the Merseysiders will not stand in the forward’s way and allow him to move to La Liga.

Real Betis have shown thier ambition by offering Arsenal star Jack Wilshere the chance to resurrect his career in Spain.

They are hoping to convince Wilshere to pen a pre-contract in January after Arsene Wenger revealed there has been no progress with a new deal for the midfielder.
