Daniel Sturridge (Chelsea)
The former Man City man performed well in the first half of last term where former boss Andre Villas-Boas was willing to give the young attacker a chance to prove himself, albeit in his less preferred role out wide. Under Roberto Di Matteo he found himself warming the bench and there is no reason to suggest life will be any different under Rafa Benitez.
Lack of first team football has seen Sturridge fall out of Roy Hodgson’s England plans and this could further force the Birmingham born forward to consider his future.
A move for Sturridge could helpfully kill two birds with one stone. If Wenger opts to cash-in on Theo Walcott they can look to bring in the Chelsea man to help fill his spot and the North London club can also look to offer the 23 year old England man the carrot of a possible striker role that he is keen on securing, a role that the Blues are seemingly unwilling to offer the bench-warmer.
