Liverpool Transfer News: Latest on Daniel Sturridge and More Deadline Day Deals
Today is the final day of the summer transfer window in the English Premier League, and Liverpool just might be one of the more active squads in the final hours.
Let’s take a look at some of the latest news and rumors floating about Anfield.
According to Ben Smith of BBC Sport, the Reds are attempting to nab the striker on a loan deal from Chelsea FC.
Since Chelsea has enough talent up front and is looking to acquire other forwards for the upcoming season, the club is dangling the 22-year-old English international.
Sturridge missed most of Chelsea’s preseason games while at the Olympics with Great Britain, and Robert Di Matteo has plenty of other options to replace his scoring ability with.
While Liverpool wouldn’t actually own the promising young Sturridge, his skill and pace would be extremely valuable in attack during the upcoming EPL campaign. The young striker could help the team to get back to the top of the table.
The Guardian is reporting that the Scottish midfielder is moving on from Anfield and heading to Stoke on a new four-year deal for an undisclosed sum.
The 26-year-old was a summer acquisition in 2011 by former boss Kenny Dalglish, but current management clearly does not favor him.
He’s one of the main pieces to be allowed to leave by Liverpool, following striker Andy Caroll, who is also making his way out of Anfield at the transfer deadline.
The 29-year-old desires more than anything to play top-flight football and a chance to earn one more sizeable contract before his current one expires at Fulham at the end of this season.
Anfield could certainly use the services of the Team USA midfielder, but it remains to be seen if Fulham will come down on their asking price for the lame duck player.
