With transfer talk rife this time of year, Daniel Strurridge has emerged among the names yet again as Liverpool look to Solve their striking problem. Having reportedly missed out on the forward in the summer, what can the Merseyside outfit expect should they acquire his services?
In Strurridge you get a player with plenty of guile and finesse, however for all of his attributed the player does not score enough goals to shrug off the “Selfish” jibes he receives. Alot of the time I have seen Strurridge he comes across as wasteful, arrogant and yes, “Selfish”. From what I have seen Strurridge is more interested in himself than the team, by showboating and lagging behind when defensive duty call.
Rodgers is however, for what I’ve gathered, a man-to-man coach. Very focused on the Moral of his player and trying to get the best he can from them. If he thinks that he can get the best out of him, then I’m sure that he will go in for him. Like I said the lad has all the potential and tools. However his decision making lets him down. Maybe if anything, falling behind Torres in the pecking order will have taught him something. Chelsea are being to become more a team unity, and maybe that was a message to Strurridge along the lines of “Play for the team, or sit on the bench”.
However I think, an this is were the rumour falls short of reality is in the amount that has been mentioned in the press. 15 million is by far an huge amount of money for the player, but I guess he is English. I think for the amount of money your talking, Walcott would by far be a better fit for Liverpool, Strurridge seems like he needs to do a bit more learning before reaching his full potential. That’s if he ever does.
I would be surprised if he did go to Liverpool, however I have been surprised before. What do you think, would he be a good signing? Have your say below.
