Daniel Sturridge believes that Liverpool’s new summer signings will push the Reds to a new level next season.
The Anfield club have been busy so far this summer, bringing six players into the squad and spending almost £70million, as the club looks to return to the Champions League for the first time since the 2014-15 season.
Star striker Sturridge is yet to win any silverware since joining the English giants three years ago, but believes the likes of Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum can push the club on after a disappointing eighth-placed finish last season.
“I am looking forward to the season and I think the signings we have made will help us push on to the next level,” said Sturridge to the Mirror.
“We are looking to be successful and win trophies, that is something I have not tasted yet with Liverpool.”
The former Chelsea star has played just 43 times in the last two years due to injuries, but the England international has also returned an impressive 18 goals in those appearances.
Sturridge is widely considered as Liverpool’s first choice striker and Jurgen Klopp will be keen to ensure that he’s ready to start the new season.
The Reds other forward options are Danny Ings, who has recently returned from a long-term injury, youngster Divock Origi, and Christian Benteke and Mario Balotelli, who are both linked with moves away this summer.
