Reports suggest Newcastle have been offered another chance to sign Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge, but fans are completely against a summer swoop.
According to the Chronicle, Newcastle have been “offered the chance” to sign Sturridge this summer.
The Magpies failed in a loan bid for the England international in January, as the Liverpool man pulled the plug late on in favour of a switch to West Brom, despite Rafael Benitez and Jürgen Klopp having agreed on a move to Tyneside.
The report claims Liverpool have now slapped a £15m price tag on the striker for a permanent move.

Sturridge scored two Premier League goals in 16 appearances last season, although over half of those showings came from the bench.
The English international scored 21 league goals in 29 games in 2013-14, and is averaging nearly a goal per 90 minutes since his 2013 move to Liverpool. However, his injury record would make him a huge risk.
Fans obviously haven’t forgot about him snubbing them in January either, a move that forced Benitez to turn to Islam Slimani instead.

I think there’s a difference between Injury prone and ALWAYS injured.

But he’d be so far from home, the poor lamb. And he’s made of wafer-thin glass.
Wouldn’t touch him with a barge pole.

The bloke’s injury record is awful. We buy him, we’re only going to have to buy another two more striker’s to make up for his injuries.
