Daniel Sturridge is eager to leave Liverpool in the January transfer window and the Reds are reportedly ready to allow him to leave on loan or permanently.
The 28-year-old has not featured regularly under Jurgen Klopp, despite starting so well at Liverpool when he joined from Chelsea back in 2013.
Sturridge has a total of 63 goals in 131 games for Liverpool, and notably formed a devastating strike partnership with Luis Suarez in the 2013/14 season when Brendan Rodgers’ side came agonisingly close to winning their first Premier League title.
Still, injuries have hampered the forward’s progress since then and he’s now concerned about his England place ahead of next summer’s World Cup, according to the Daily Mirror.

Sturridge is seemingly prepared to give up on breaking into the Liverpool side and will attempt to revive his career elsewhere, with the Mirror also reporting that Liverpool are happy to accept his departure.
Despite the fine form of the club’s current first-choice attackers, fans may not be too pleased to see a proven goalscorer leave and potentially strengthen a Premier League rival.
Still, Liverpool cannot realistically keep an unhappy player on their books for much longer, and may well feel justified in cutting ties with someone with such a poor injury record.
