Three reasons West Ham should steer clear of the £40m-rated Daniel Sturridge

According to an article in the Daily Mail analysing the futures of a number of England players, reported West Ham United target Daniel Sturridge has been valued at £40m by Liverpool if he is to leave Anfield this summer.

The story says that the striker could be on his way out of Anfield before the start of next season with manager Jurgen Klopp undecided on whether he should stay after failing to win a regular spot in the starting line-up over the course of the last two seasons.

Roberto Firmino was just one of the players that was preferred in the centre-forward role last term as Sturridge took his spot on the substitutes’ bench, and the 27-year-old ended the campaign with just seven goals in 27 appearances in all competitions, with just three of those coming in the Premier League.

Irons manager Slaven Bilic is keen to sign two strikers this summer and the Daily Mail suggests the Croatian would face competition from Paris Saint-Germain if he decided to push ahead with a move for the England striker, but he would be better off turning his attentions elsewhere.
