Reds renew Sturridge interest.
Brendan Rodgers was tracking the Chelsea forward over the summer and is ready to move for the 23-year-old in January.
Brendan Rodgers’ striker issues are well documented – with Andy Carroll on loan at West Ham United and Fabio Borini out with a long term injury, Luis Suarez is the only fit centre forward at Anfield.
Daniel Sturridge didn’t win many plaudits with his performance in Wednesday night’s extra time 5-4 win over Manchester United in the League Cup at Stamford Bridge – despite scoring Chelsea’s fourth goal and arguably most important goal.
Sturridge looked off the pace and there were comic elements to his performance, including when he tripped over the ball when put clean through by the hugely impressive Victor Moses. His myopic and blinkered approach to play when team-mates were in space have seen him labelled the most selfish striker since sliced bread.
That… that actually might be a good thing for Liverpool, however.
The Reds have suffered from a peculiar disorder in the last few seasons. They create infinity chances per game, but tend to put about 0.1% in the back of the net.
Perhaps having someone who will shoot on sight – and sometimes even not on sight – would solve all Liverpool’s problems.
