During the January transfer window, there was speculation that PSG fancied taking Daniel Sturridge off our hands.
It turns it was true.
A special report by Goal, put together by the trusted Merseyside correspondent Melissa Reddy and her Paris-based colleague Loic Tanzi claims the perennial Ligue 1 champions wanted our English forward, who they believed would complement Edison Cavani in attack. PSG are managed by Unai Emery of course, who witnessed Sturridge’s world-class goal in the Europa League final when he managed Sevilla.
However, they were only prepared to loan Sturridge this winter, which Liverpool immediately rejected. Had they submitted a cash offer, they might have ended up with their man, but as it is, they’ll have to compete for his services in the summer.
A report in the Times suggests the 27-year-old will leave Liverpool at the end of the season, having fallen out of favour with Jurgen Klopp, who favours a striker that puts more work in off the ball.
