It cannot really get much better for Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern, and ESPN’s news that Daniel Sturridge is set to be offered a new deal is the icing on the cake.
The England international forward has been one half of a very deadly duo this season and is set to be duly rewarded for his efforts.
After spells at Manchester City and Chelsea, Sturridge has finally found a home at Anfield, a strike partner he gels with to epic effect and a manager who trusts him.
Sturridge has been a major part of Liverpool’s title chase this term and now the Reds want to tie him down to a new and more lucrative deal at the club.
Currently netting around £70,000 per week, the club and manager Brendan Rodgers are keen to show Sturridge how much he is valued and want to double that money.
One of our punters notes that given Luis Suarez gets £200,000 per week, that is only fair.
The Reds are one third of the closest title race in years and as Liverpool fans in the tavern tell us, should they win their first ever Premier League trophy, the SAS will have been one of the main reasons why.
Does Sturridge deserve to be earning as much as Suarez? Let us know your thoughts below.
