Daniel Sturridge could be offered an escape from Liverpool as AC Milan consider him as a replacement for Carlos Bacca, according to reports in Italy.
Jurgen Klopp is reportedly happy for the England striker to leave Anfield as he has handed his regular starting place to Roberto Firmino, and the Brazilian’s fine form suggests there could be no way back for the former Manchester City and Chelsea star.
CalcioMercatoWeb believe Milan want Sturridge to help their resurgence in Serie A, where they current sit third behind Juventus and Roma.
The club’s new Chinese owners have given them money to spend, and that could include a £25.5million bid for the forward.
It’s surprising the Reds are so open to letting him go in the light of Danny Ings injury, with the ex-Burnley star ruled out for the season with yet another setback. Klopp’s likely, therefore, to spend any money received for Sturridge and reinvest in his squad, which would certainly mark a welcome change in Liverpool’s transfer policy.
