Liverpool and Sturridge suitors €10m apart over valuation

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is reportedly wanted in Turkey by Istanbul-based Besiktas.

Turkish newspaper Star claim that Liverpool are prepared to sell Sturridge for €15million after loaning him to West Brom in January last season.

The relegated Baggies paid an £3.8million loan fee in January with the Hawthorns outfit covering the entirety of his £120,000-a-week wages after beating Newcastle to his signature.

Sturridge, in total, managed just 116 minutes of football for WBA after being struck down by a hamstring injury and he will be allowed to leave Anfield this summer.

The 28-year-old is out of contract next summer and would be able to negotiate a free transfer from this January, but his sale looks almost certain.

The same source though claim Besiktas want to to do a deal, but are only prepared to pay €5million for Sturridge.

They claim Besiktas have held talks with his Turkish representative, Hasan Anil Eken and Liverpool over a summer transfer.

Besiktas are on the lookout for a new striker this summer, but Turkish-Football report that the Black Eagles have not actually made an offer.

They claim there has been no contact with Liverpool or his representatives.

Sturridge last month denied claims he and Liverpool boss Klopp hd fallen out.


The former England man shot down suggestions online from Anfield Edition, who claimed the pair’s relationship had tourned sour.

The site, whose Twitter account has almost 34,000 followers, deleted the tweet in question, but Sturridge responded to claims that he had not been invited to the Champions League final against Real Madrid in Kiev.

“Spoke to the boss and Michael Edwards over the couple of days and wished them good luck for the final.

“Wished my team mates good luck after the semis and this week.”
