According to the Mirror, the Gunners are plotting a £30 million move to sign the England international this summer, with Arsene Wenger apparently deciding that he needs to invest in his forward line in order to achieve the success that his club’s fans crave.
While Sturridge has endured a tricky season—with injury and fitness concerns affecting his contribution—he has impressed when he has featured for the Reds.
