Liverpool Prepare Serious Offer for Chelsea Forward

Anfield side continue to track England international Daniel Sturridge, who is wasting away on the Stamford Bridge bench.

Check-In to Chelsea v Liverpool

According to Fichajes Liverpool are lining up a ‘serious’ offer for Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge.

The 23 year old Blues attacker has been handed just 53 minutes of Premier League football this term and that has in turn affected his progress with the England national team and the former Man City man must be considering his options as Roberto Di Matteo continues to steadfastly stick with Spaniard Fernando Torres.

Liverpool are in desperate need of effective attacking additions having seen their two senior striking options narrowed down to just Luis Suarez after the unproven Italian Fabio Borini suffered a foot injury.

Brendan Rodgers may feel he has a good shot at persuading Chelsea to sell Sturridge given the connections the Northern Irishman has with the West London club, having served as both reserve and youth team boss at Stamford Bridge.

Sturridge may feel a move to Anfield would afford him the regular first team football he needs at this point in his career, Rodgers may see the speedy forward as an ideal foil for Suarez and a January bid is certainly a distinct possibility.
