Former Liverpool midfielder Jason McAteer has suggested that Daniel Sturridge would be making a mistake if he joined West Ham United this summer.
The East London outfit have been rumoured contenders for the striker’s signature, particularly after manager Slaven Bilic praised him during the second half of last season.
The England international struggled for game time under Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, but injuries were also a contributing factor.
Sturridge started just seven Premier League games, and for large chunks of the campaign fell behind Divock Origi in the pecking order.
In total, the forward scored seven goals and produced one assist in all competitions in the 2016-17 season.
According to The Mirror, despite the 27-year-old’s limited minutes over recent seasons, Liverpool have placed a £40m price tag on his head.
McAteer, who spent four years playing for the Merseyside outfit in the 1990s, believes that if Sturridge decides to leave Liverpool, who should aim for a club like Paris Saint-Germain rather than West Ham.
The Mirror quotes the former footballer as saying:
“I’ve heard West Ham want to sign him. But my personal opinion is that Daniel would thrive at somewhere like PSG. Playing with superstars like Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria would suit his game. In France, he would also be out of the constant spotlight.”
