Liverpool are willing to sell Daniel Sturridge to another Premier League club, as long as they meet the £30million valuation.
The England hitman is way down the pecking order at Anfield and has informed Jurgen Klopp he wants out this month.
Roberto Firmino is Klopp’s main man upfront with Dominic Solanke and fit again Danny Ings ahead of the 28-year-old striker who days on Merseyside look numbered.
Despite interest from Premier League outfits, none are prepared to go anywhere near the £30m Liverpool are demanding and his reported £150,000-a-week wages, according to the Daily Mail.
Stoke City pondered a move, but have cooled their interest following the sacking of Mark Hughes last week.
Any team wanting Sturridge could push for loan with a view to a permanent deal due to the forward’s injuries and lack of game time in recent years.
A series of muscles injuries have hampered the Brummie striker’s career.
Sturridge has started just 30 Premier League games since the 2014-15 season when he bagged 17 goals as Liverpool went close to winning the title.
The striker has not featured for the club since starting the 1-1 draw with Chelsea on November 25 and has started just five games this season scoring three goals.
Sturridge has not given up on making the England squad for this summer’s World Cup and is hoping an injury free run of games elsewhere will give Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate a selection dilemma.
