Daniel Sturridge was crucial for then-Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers in the 2013-14 season as the club came two points within winning the Premier League title.
The striker formed an attacking trio with Luis Suarez and Raheem Sterling, both of whom have moved on to other clubs.
Fast-forward four seasons and Sturridge now finds himself low down in the pecking order, so much so that he was sent on loan to West Bromwich Albion for the second half of the 2017-18 campaign.
It was widely suggested that the forward would be sold this summer due to the likely lack of game time that he is facing at Anfield.
However, with only a matter of weeks left until the new season begins, it seems that the tide has turned.
According to the Liverpool Echo, manager Jurgen Klopp has been impressed with the 28-year-old in pre-season and is willing to keep him for the remainder of his contract, which expires next summer.
Injuries have played a major part in Sturridge’s decline, but when the campaign kicks off, he will be hoping to add to his haul of 75 Premier League goals.
Judging by the reaction on Reddit, the majority of Liverpool fans are hopeful of the same thing.
