Currently sidelined with injury, Daniel Sturridge may have kicked his last ball for Liverpool.
There’s no doubting the England international’s pedigree and he can border upon unplayable for opposition defenders when in top form, boasting a strike-rate better than one-in-two in the Premier League since signing for Liverpool in January 2013.
But Sturridge’s injury problems are notorious and he hasn’t enjoyed a solid run of form since Jurgen Klopp replaced Brendan Rodgers as Anfield gaffer last season – so a departure this summer seems inevitable.
Earlier this week, West Ham manager Slaven Bilic revealed his admiration for the Liverpool striker. The Irons boss is certainly in need of extra firepower for next season, with his side struggling for results during Andy Carroll’s recurring injury absences.
But according to the results of our recent poll, the majority of West Ham fans wouldn’t back a bid for Sturridge this summer, with 52% voting against a potential transfer deal with Liverpool. The east Londoners clearly need to sign another striker this summer, but Bilic might be better off looking elsewhere.
