Newcastle fans were not impressed by Tuesday’s links to Daniel Sturridge, but could the Magpies use the Liverpool man?
According to a report from the Chronicle, Newcastle have been offered the chance to sign Sturridge this summer for £15m.
The Liverpool striker turned down the chance to move to Tyneside on loan in January, snubbing the Magpies to join West Brom instead.
The Birmingham born striker supposedly chose the Baggies to be closer to his family, but with Liverpool now looking to cash in, could a permanent move to St. James’ reignite the Englishman’s career?
Everyone knows the biggest issue with signing Sturridge, as the Liverpool man has missed countless games season after season with various injury issues.
However, in today’s inflated transfer market, it could be worth taking a punt on a man who has 48 Premier League goals in 98 appearances for Liverpool.
The 28 year-old is 6 ft 2, strong, quick, skilful and versatile… but above all else he knows how to find the back of the net.
Signing Sturridge would obviously be a huge risk, but it’s not every day you get offered the chance to sign a striker capable of scoring 20 goals a season for just £15m, and if anyone can get his head right it’s Rafael Benitez.
So, Newcastle fans, would you take the risk on Sturridge? Is he worth £15m? Let us know your thoughts by voting in the poll below…
