Former England International Danny Murphy has told Liverpool to keep hold of their striker Daniel Sturridge beyond the summer.
Speculations were rife in recent times that the former Chelsea forward could depart Anfield following the omission from Jurgen Klopp’s first team.
Sturridge has scored 51 goals in 88 appearances since his move to join the Reds and Murphy is adamant his former side would be the sole benefactors if they retain the services of Sturridge.
“In terms of ability and goalscoring prowess, Sturridge is as good as Liverpool have got and he’s one of most talented strikers we’ve got in this country,” he told talkSPORT.
“His goals-to-games ratio for Liverpool is phenomenal and as a striker, what do you do? You score goals! Goals win games and Sturridge is the best striker Liverpool have got.
“The bottom line is, can Liverpool sell Daniel Sturridge and use that money to get someone better? I don’t think they can.”
