Stamford Bridge forward set for Anfield move.
Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge is set to undergo a medical at Liverpool on Sunday ahead of a £12million transfer, British media reported Saturday.
Liverpool are ready to complete the deal with the European champions after a dispute with the striker’s representatives was resolved, the Liverpool Echo newspaper claimed.
The 23-year-old former Manchester City striker has only made seven league appearances for Chelsea this season, scoring one league goal against Tottenham in October.
Sturridge, who has four England caps, has scored 24 goals in 49 starts and 47 substitute appearances since his arrival at Stamford Bridge in 2009.
Brendan Rodgers saw his Liverpool side romp to a 4-0 win over Fulham yesterday but on the whole has seen his side struggle to score regularly, with far too much of the goal-scoring burden falling on the shoulders of Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez.
A move to bring a player of Daniel Sturridge’s ability and potential is a very wise one for the Merseyside club to pursue.
Sturridge has barely featured on the Chelsea first team since Andre Villas-Boas was axed as Blues boss back in March.
