According to reports in Italy, Daniel Sturridge could move to AC Milan on loan in January.
The forward wants to leave Liverpool, and we don’t blame him.
Despite scoring in consecutive games against Huddersfield and Maribor, the Englishman hasn’t been given a single minute in Liverpool’s past three fixtures – which isn’t befitting a 28-year-old of his immense talent.
We’re not suggesting Jurgen Klopp should be starting him; he shouldn’t. Roberto Firmino does a brilliant job leading the line, but Sturridge has been dropped from Gareth Southgate’s England squad as a result of his limited minutes and the forward deserves a chance to get back in contention for Russia 2018.
English players have a poor record abroad, but we think Sturridge has the character to adjust. He’s very confident, outgoing and would enjoy everything the city of Milan has to offer.
Liverpool have ten games before January though, meaning we are definitely going to need the attacker at some point in 2017.
Until then, we hope he gives is all, as he’s still Liverpool’s most talented finisher.
But in January, should he demand a loan, we should probably allow it, with Dominic Solanke and Danny Ings backing up the superb group we already have in the final third.
