Daniel Sturridge made his debut for Liverpool in the second half of the 2012 season and he had an amazing start to his career at Anfield. He became the fastest player to score 30 goals for Liverpool. He also holds the record for scoring in eight consecutive games in the 2013-14 season. Sturridge partnered wonderfully well with Suarez and was very instrumental in the 2013-14 season in which Liverpool almost managed to win the title. His ability to play at the center as well as at the sides makes him a powerhouse in the front. His clinical finishing and his powerful left-foot makes him a treat to watch for the fans.
The Injury Curse
The 26-year-old has just made 69 league appearances in this 3 and a half seasons with Liverpool. At the start of the 2014-15 season, he picked up a thigh injury and this was followed by a series of injuries which sidelined him for five months. He made a comeback and again in March picked up another injury ruling him out for another six months. Injuries have haunted Sturridge in his 3 years at Anfield. There are absolutely no questions when it comes to his quality but his fitness has been a major concern. Liverpool have often felt the need of a physically stronger striker up-front.
A Possible Summer move?
Daniel Sturridge is a player who is loved at Anfield and Jurgen Klopp also seems to have a good feedback about the 26-year-old striker. There were also reports suggesting that Sturridge is not happy playing under the new manager. In a recent interview, Klopp clearly denied this and also requested the media not to create any such rumors.
However, Paris Saint-Germain are believed to have made a whopping 50 million pounds offer for the striker. PSG are expecting the departure of Cavani and Ibrahimovic in the summer and are in dire need of a quality striker up-front. Jurgen Klopp is also on a revival mission of his team and is willing to do whatever it takes to bring a change at Anfield. He might just be tempted with this offer and might consider letting the striker go. An offer as big as this could help Klopp gain a lot of financial leverage and he could think of spending big on bigger names this summer. This will be a big call for the manager and he is known to take good managerial calls in regards to the transfers.
