Liverpool keen to take Chelsea striker Sturridge to Anfield
Liverpool could be set to reignite their interest in Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge, but the Reds’ lack of transfer funds could prove to be a major obstacle.
Sturridge began last season in fine form under former boss Andre Villas-Boas, but the England forward found game time limited following the interim appointment of Roberto Di Matteo.
Now that Di Matteo is in charge on a permanent basis, Sturridge’s future appears uncertain, particularly if Chelsea successfully recruit a new striker before the transfer window closes.
And according to today’s Daily Mail, Liverpool are keen to take the 22-year-old to Anfield and resurrect his career.
However, the Reds are struggling to raise the funds needed to sign Sturridge and it is thought they will only make an offer if they manage to offload Andy Carroll.
The Reds have already signed striker Fabio Borini for £9million and outlaid £15million for midfielder Joe Allen, and the club’s hierarchy have insisted they will not be looking to spend as lavishly as they did last summer.
Manchester City are also reportedly interested in signing Sturridge, three years after he left the club for Chelsea, but it is currently unconfirmed how genuine their interest is beyond media speculation.
