Report: Leicester City want to sign striker set to depart Liverpool

Daniel Sturridge has fallen way down the pecking order at Anfield and will probably leave when his deal ends in the summer.

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to reunite with Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge in the summer, according to The Sun.

The 29-year-old will be out of contract at the end of the season and having fallen down the pecking order at Anfield he will probably move on.

Rodgers will look to add some competition for Jamie Vardy. At present Kelechi Iheanacho and Shinji Okazaki offer support, but Rodgers is keen to add a striker to his ranks.

Sturridge has started just six games in all competitions this season. Jurgen Klopp clearly hasn’t fancied him and Rodgers could be just the boss to revive his career.

It was Rodgers who took the striker to Liverpool from Chelsea in 2013, with the pair very nearly winning the Premier League at Anfield.

 

TBR Verdict

Sturridge is at a bit of a crossroads in his career. At 29 and having not played a lot of football this season, he really needs to go out and play.

There is an argument to suggest that he might not play all that much at Leicester though. Vardy is clearly the number one talisman so will he become second fiddle at the King Power Stadium too?

That remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure, Sturridge’s career at Liverpool is coming to an end.

Rodgers has a knack of getting the best out of players. The 29-year-old needs his next move to be the right one and Leicester could be ideal.

Sturridge is paid £130k-a-week, according to Spotrac and it remains to be seen whether that could scupper any plans of the Foxes doing a deal.
