Former Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City striker Daniel Sturridge is reportedly on the verge of joining Turkish club Trabzonspor.

The free agent, who received a six-week ban from football in relation to breaches of betting rules, has been able to resume playing since 31st July after part of that sentence was suspended.

Sturridge, 29, left Liverpool at the end of last season and received a glowing tribute from Jurgen Klopp

Having been linked with a whole range of clubs across Europe and England, including Aston Villa, he’s reportedly set to join the likes of Jean Michaël Seri, Ryan Babel, Emmanuel Adebayor and Gael Clichy in the Turkish Super Lig.

Sturridge, who has 26 caps for England and scored 67 goals in 160 appearances for Liverpool, is set to sign for the side that finished 4th in the Turkish top flight last season, according to the Daily Mail.

Should the deal go through, he’ll share a dressing room with his former Chelsea teammate John Obi Mikel, Crystal Palace loanee Alexander Sorloth and former Leeds United striker Caleb Ekuban.

At present, Trabzonspor’s Europa League future lies in the balance, having drawn the first leg of a qualifier, 2-2 away at Sparta Prague.
