Liverpool will apparently let a star striker leave for £15m, while Arsenal are closing in on a £48m double swoop, according to Tuesday’s papers.
LIVERPOOL NAME ASKING PRICE FOR STRIKER
Liverpool have reportedly named a £15m asking price for striker Daniel Sturridge, with multiple clubs interested.
According to the Telegraph, Sevilla, Besiktas and Fenerbahce are all interested in a move for Sturridge and believe they can tempt him abroad.
The striker has had a difficult time at Anfield, having been plagued by injuries since joining from Chelsea back in 2013.
Jurgen Klopp is likely to afford a place on the bench to younger forwards such as Rhian Brewster, who recently signed a new contract to avoid him leaving for the Bundesliga.
With only a year left on his contract, Sturridge is also well aware that he could wait until January and sign a pre-contract free transfer agreement with a foreign club, this increasing his earning potential.
