Daniel Sturridge may be leading the line for England, but he’s starting to accept his fate at Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp has favoured a front three this season which hasn’t included the striker, and his attempts to force himself into the German’s thinking have so far proved largely unsuccessful.
Publicly, Sturridge insists he is going to fight for his place, but the Mirror have it that he is on the hunt for a new club – with West Ham and Stoke both keen.
The 27-year-old is yet to score a league goal in this campaign, but that won’t deter many Premier League clubs from considering a bid, even if he’s unlikely to relent on his £120,000 a week wages.
Both the Hammers and the Potters are struggling for goals, so Sturridge could be the answer. However, Klopp’s big problem with him is believed to be that he’s too selfish on the ball, so that could put off potential suitors too.
