Forward set to move from Stamford Bridge to Emirates Stadium.
Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge is considering his future at the West London club, according to a report in the Sun.
The England international, who is 22 years of age, has publicly stated his preference to start in a central striker position rather than the right wing spot he tends to occupy.
That issue coupled with the minor point that he will only have a year remaining on his contract at the end of the season has led to persistent rumours in recent weeks he is set to depart Stamford Bridge.
Arsenal would appear his most likely destination – particularly as Sturridge is believed to be a Gunners supporter.
What’s more, Sturridge would be far more likely to receive playing time in his favoured position at the Emirates Stadium, with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger notoriously short of strikers.
Whilst Robin van Persie has been in sensational form, backup options Marouane Chamakh and Park Chu Young have effectively been spectators, and Wenger had to bring in club legend Thierry Henry to help out with goalscoring.
Sturridge received his first England cap this season, and looks set for a very bright future in the game.
His nine goals and three assists from out wide in the Barclays Premier League this season are a very respectable total, and the 22 year-old promises even better from a central position.
