Has Levy Spied A Neglected Talent On The Chelsea Bench?

After the dismissal of AVB earlier in the year at Stamford Bridge, it wasn’t just the manager who missed out as it saw the impressive run of Daniel Sturridge come to an end. Now with AVB favourite to take over as the manager of the North London club, rumour mills have been circulating which could see Sturridge reunite with his former gaffer.

The 23 year old played 37 games last season in all competitions but he strongly impressed the Chelsea fans who saw him challenge for a starting eleven role at the club.

Between the 2nd of October last season and the 22nd of December, Sturridge featured in 14 games but only played the full 90 minutes on 8 occasions between this time period. But when he did play the whole game, the Englishman scored 6 times and assisted twice. So on average he managed to directly contribute to a goal when he played for the full duration, but how can he only achieve a position on the bench?

With Spurs needing to buy a couple of strikers desperately, Sturridge would be a great option. With Chelsea looking at players with a heftier price tag such as Torres and Hulk to feature in their attack, it leaves little space for this promising player, which has led to speculation of Sturridge’s future at the London club.

Will he make a move across the capital to Spurs? Leave your comments below.
