The summer transfer window promises to be a hectic one for Liverpool in terms of both in-comings and notable out-goings.
Daniel Sturridge is one man who for some time now has been reportedly verging on becoming a certainty to depart at the end of the season in search of regular first team football.
A dreadful January and a demoralising 3-1 defeat to Leicester later and it seems he isn’t the only Red who could be on his way out of the club.
Though Jurgen Klopp avoided giving too much away about the future of the England striker, he did give fans reason to believe there could be lots of change come July.
“I have no idea what happens in the summer. It is not only Daniel but a lot of players,” Klopp told the Liverpool Echo.
“Daniel was not in training for eight or nine days because of a virus infection.”
“We have to bring him back to the best shape possible and then bring this season to an end as successfully as possible.”
“Then we will make decisions and speak about Daniel and any other players about what will happen at the end of the season. A lot of things will influence this and we can speak about it when it is time.”
It is seemingly no longer just Sturridge fighting for his Anfield career, but also the entire team.
There are a number of players who have been under-performing which is quite frankly why Sturridge, providing he can return to fitness, still has a chance to prove his value between now and May.
Not only do the remainder of Liverpool’s games promise to define their season, but they promise to demonstrate just how ruthless Klopp can be in terms of dropping players.
Of course we’d like Sturridge to stay if it looks like he can start firing up top again but whether that will be the case, we just don’t know.
