The news of Paris Saint-Germain’s interest in Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge has come as a surprise, and it has Reds’ supporters debating whether he should be sold or not.
Reports suggest that the French club are willing to pay in the region of £45million for the striker and that is quite a price for a player that has had a terrible injury record in recent times.
There is no doubt that Sturridge is top class striker and finisher, but there has to be question marks over his fitness.
It seems that the Liverpool support is split on deciding whether to sell or keep the England international.
Personally, I would take the money for Sturridge and would like to trust Klopp on re-investing the money from the sale more wisely than Brendan Rodgers did from the money from the sale of Luis Suarez.
Over the last couple of seasons I’ve lost faith in Sturridge’s fitness and I don’t think he is a player that the club can rely on, and this proved costly for Brendan Rodgers after Suarez was sold.
Even though Sturridge has been fit to play in recent games, he looks like a player playing within himself, for example, I’ve watched him sprint after balls played into the corners and he usually gives up and certainly doesn’t run flat out. Even his body language is worrying as he trudges off the field after being substituted.
It doesn’t matter how good a player is, he is no good if he isn’t fit to play regularly.
I think Sturridge has had enough time to prove his fitness in the last couple of seasons, but he has not been available to play enough and to get an offer like Paris Saint-Germain despite his poor fitness record is very good, and Liverpool should take it while he is still worth good money.
