- Daniel Sturridge on Chelsea’s radar for January transfer window
- Englishman out of favour at Anfield and needs move to get back in England squad

Chelsea are being linked to Daniel Sturridge, whose on the shortlist of potential strikers to arrive in January, say the Daily Mail.
Their report lists our forgotten forward as an option for Antonio Conte, who wants backup for Alvaro Morata at Stamford Bridge.
Michy Batshuayi wants to leave for more minutes, while Diego Costa departed for Atletico Madrid in the summer.
Sturridge wants to leave Liverpool, as Jurgen Klopp has never truly trusted him during his 26 months at the club.
This term, the Englishman has started five Premier League games and zero in the Champions League, which forced Gareth Southgate to leave him out of the last England squad…
Quite understandably, he wants an exit to play more minutes and force himself into World Cup contention.
But he won’t be a starter at Chelsea, either, with Morata proving to be one of the best attackers in the league.
Surely a transfer to West Ham or a mid-table club would be a better option. Liverpool shouldn’t stand in his way.
