This is a transfer that makes sense on many levels.
Brendan Rodgers is keen on signing Daniel Sturridge on a Bosman transfer upon the expiration of the Liverpool striker’s contract, reports the Daily Mail.
The English forward was sensational under Rodgers during the Northern Irishman’s stint in charge at Anfield, especially during the 2013/14 campaign – in which Sturridge fired 24 goals in total.
But injuries have affected him in the years since and despite being only 29-years-old, is over the hill and barely gets an opportunity under Jurgen Klopp.
Sturridge started the season well, scoring a crucial goal v Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, you’ll remember – but now – Divock Origi has climbed ahead of him in the pecking order.
Next term, we’ll have Rhian Brewster fighting for minutes, as well as the potential option of a new attacker we’ll buy this summer – so the smart choice for Sturridge is to move on.
Leicester have Jamie Vardy as their starter, but Sturridge would get more minutes at the King Power than he does for us.
If he fancies it, we’ll wish him well. At his best, he was unplayable.
