London side plot shock move for Liverpool hitman as Klopp loses faith in forward

According to reports, West Ham United are considering an unlikely January move for Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge.

The forward has struggled to overcome his long-standing injury concerns at Anfield this season, making only five appearances in the Premier League this season—of which three have been starts—and scoring only two goals.

The 26-year-old remains a class act and a truly menacing prospect in attack—as he demonstrated against Southampton in a recent League Cup cameo—but his fine showings are few and far between due to his extensive injury lay-offs.

The Brentwood Gazette note that Jurgen Klopp is looking to cash in on the former Chelsea and Manchester City star, and that West Ham are primed to offer the versatile attacker a route out of Anfield.

The report states that the Hammers have ambitious plans to secure Champions League qualification this season, and that Slaven Bilic is keen to recruit a hitman in order to bolster the East Londoners’ chances of making the top four this season.

According to the report, Juventus’ Simone Zaza is also being considered as an option to provide competition for injured pair Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll.
