Daniel Sturridge would “like to leave” Liverpool in this transfer window but he needs to prove his fitness first, according to the Sunday Supplement panel
The 26-year-old has started just once in the league for the Reds so far this season, and appeared to be nonplussed at being brought on as a substitute for just two minutes of the Reds’ draw at Spurs.
The Supplement panel had little sympathy for the England international’s plight, however, with Matt Dunn of the Daily Express suggesting a move away from Anfield may be on Sturridge’s mind.
“I think Sturridge would like to [leave],” he said. “He is speaking as someone who doesn’t see a long term harmony with his manager.
“He has got an England manager who says he needs to be playing regularly, he has ambitions to be scoring regularly and is a player who loves playing football – there are lots of reasons why he would want to leave.
“Whether Liverpool would want to sell him is another matter.”
