Liverpool's attack is expected finally to be bolstered, as Daniel Sturridge looks almost certain to arrive at Anfield in the immediate future. Sturridge, 23, is frustrated at his lack of playing time at Chelsea, but more importantly to him, the fact that he is utilised primarily in the left-wing spot as opposed to his preferred striking role.

Nevertheless, Sturridge still wishes to become a Liverpool player, and if all goes according to plan, he soon will be.
