When unwanted striker Daniel Sturridge was sent on loan to Premier League strugglers West Brom last season, very few people would have predicted the revival that he has experienced.
However, according to talkSPORT, the forward is looking to sign a new contract at Anfield after a terrific start to the 2018/19 season, and Liverpool should not hesitate to give it to him.
Despite still not featuring heavily for The Reds so far this season, Sturridge still has two Premier League goals and one in the Champions League so far this season, including a stunner to earn a draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Not only has he showed the form to warrant a new contract at Anfield, but it may be wise given the transfer rumours that are circulating around the club. There are intensifying rumours that current striker and manager Jürgen Klopp’s favourite, Roberto Firmino, may be on his way to Barcelona. If these rumours are true, they will still want the services of one striker that is established at the club.
Of course they will buy a new player if Firmino were to go, but there is not always a guarantee that the new player will be an instant success in the Premier League. Sturridge would be there to allow continuity between players.
Sturridge has experienced many highs and lows whilst at Anfield, but looks to have turned a corner after a rough 2017/18 season. Liverpool provides the perfect place to revive his international career as well. This is a deal that suits all parties involved.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
