CHELSEA SET TO LOSE ‘UNSETTLED’ DANIEL STURRIDGE TO LIVERPOOL
CHELSEA could be set to lose ‘unsettled’ Daniel Sturridge after he became a top target for Liverpool.
New Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has shown an interest in the winger, who has yet to renew his contract with the Blues.
Sturridge, is said to be unhappy with the amount of playtime he gets at Chelsea since Roberto Di Matteo came to power and is open to a possible moves.
According to the DailyStar.co.uk, Rodgers is targeting Sturridge as a key replacement for Dirk Kuyt and is keen to get the player on board.
Rodgers is expected to have lined up a £15m offer for Sturridge but he could face stiff competition as Manchester City seek to strengthen their ranks.

With Chelsea youngster Daniel Sturridge seemingly not being a player Roberto Di Matteo values all that highly a move to hand the Italian the Blues manager’s job on a permanent basis may well lead to the youngster being lured to Anfield according to this source.
Former boss Andre Villas-Boas had shown a great deal of faith in Sturridge when he was in charge but the former Man City’s first team chances dried up once Di Matteo took charge, despite the fact that the 22 year old finished the West London club’s joint top Premier League scorer.
Sturridge missed out on the Champions League semi-final tie against Barcelona as well as the final against Bayern Munich as well as the FA Cup Final against Liverpool.
Rodgers may well be keen on raiding the club he used to work for as a coach as he looks to beef up his attacking options. Currently the only recognised striking options the Anfield boss has to call upon are Uruguayan international Luis Suarez, £35m man Andy Carroll and veteran Craig Bellamy so the addition of Sturridge to his ranks would be a very sensible move to make.
