Sturridge has made just 14 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool this season, scoring three goals.
He has not featured in the Premier League since November and is finding himself in a huge transfer tug of war as the deadline approaches as BBC Sport has claimed that Newcastle are also keen in trying up a deal to sign the England international.
Football Insider verdict
Sturridge will be an incredible for signing and the deal is also in the interest of Liverpool. The ex-Manchester City and Chelsea ace is simply not having much luck with injuries and getting into the first-team at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp appears to have no plans to include him back in his side any time soon so loaning him out to a Premier League side makes perfect sense. It could potentially boost his valuation and give him a chance to impress in an improving team ahead of the World Cup. Jay Rodriguez showed at Anfield on Saturday that Albion have some good strikers on their books so barging into Alan Pardew’s plans will not be as easy as many would think.
