Anfield side to hand striker sparkling new deal.
Liverpool are set to hand injured striker Daniel Sturridge a new contract that will see the England man’s wages rise steeply according to the Daily Star.
The 25 year old has proven a superb signing since moving to Anfield in January 2013, netting 36 goals in 52 appearances, and a new contract will see the former Chelsea and Man City man’s earnings rise from £65k a week to above £150k a week.
The deal is set to cost Liverpool £40m and would run until 2019 and comes as the marksman is set to be included in Roy Hodgson’s England squad for upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers against the club’s wishes.
Sturridge has been out with a thigh injury for a month, which was sustained during his last stint with the England side, but could be back to face West Brom on the weekend.
Having seen Luis Suarez leave for Barcelona the Merseyside outfit invested in new striking options though arguably both Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli have struggled to impress, which may well be the reason Liverpool are urgently looking to keep Sturridge happy with a brand new contract.
