AC Milan are keeping an eye on the reportedly unhappy Daniel Sturridge as they consider making a move for him in January, according to a report.
Calciomercato reports that the Italian giants are considering signing the England international in the next transfer window as they have struggled to score goals this season.
Sturridge has reportedly been frustrated by his lack of game time as he has only started four Premier League games and he is aiming to make the England Squad for the World Cup in Russia in the summer.
The 28-year-old was dropped by Gareth Southgate from England’s last squad for the international friendlies against Germany and Brazil.
However, Jurgen Klopp has already gone on the record to dismiss the possibility of Sturridge leaving the club soon, stating that Liverpool need “all” their players.
Football Insider Verdict
Daniel Sturridge needs to think of his international career – the striker has already been dropped from the England squad and he needs to ensure he gets himself back in. Who knows how many opportunities the 28-year-old has left to play at a World Cup? The striker’s injuries problems are well documented, and he has to do his utmost to get in that World Cup squad for Russia. If Klopp won’t play him regularly he needs a January exit, and with AC Milan lacking a prolific scorer, he will get a chance to get regular football there. There’s always the possibility of the move just being short-term, which could see an improved Sturridge return to the Reds in the summer in a win-win move.
