Liverpool are reportedly keen to get rid of Sturridge on a permanent basis and not on loan

Since his arrival at Anfield from fellow Premier League giants Chelsea in January 2013, Sturridge has made a fairly significant impact for the Merseyside club.

During his time with the club, the 28-year-old has been able to make 133 appearances, scoring 64 goals and assisting 24 in that time frame.

So far this season, Sturridge has found his first team chances limited for Jurgen Klopp’s side, with the player only making 14 appearances in competitions for the Reds.

Sturridge’s time on Merseyside has been plagued with injuries thus far, with the England international having missed 97 games through injury since arriving at the club five years ago.
