Punters across the Transfer Tavern were in disbelief this afternoon as a shocking news story stopped everything, with matches of darts and pool all being swiftly abandoned.
The Brentwood Gazette sensationally state West Ham United are eyeing an £18m bid for Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge, with Jurgen Klopp set to offload the England international due to his poor injury record.
Sturridge previously created a deadly partnership with Luis Suarez but has failed to step-up since the Uruguayan left for Barcelona, instead finding himself a constant fixture on the treatment table- earning him vast criticism.
26-year-old Sturridge now faces the embarrassment of being ousted from three top Premier League clubs, following time at Manchester City and Chelsea, with new boss Jurgen Klopp far from please with his injury record.
That could work to West Ham’s advantage though, with Slaven Bilic ready to make a move as he looks to create a squad capable of landing Champions League football to bring the the Olympic Stadium next season- and Sturridge would be a huge coup.
However, our landlord believes Klopp will give Sturridge until the summer to prove his worth but expects the England man to vacate Anfield then.
Liverpool fans, would you sell Sturridge this month? Let us know in the comments below!
