Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge favours a move to La Liga side Sevilla as he looks to kickstart his career this month. According to recent reports in the English press, the English forward is keen to make a switch to Spain with Sevilla eager to swoop in for his services. The 28-year-old has also been linked with a move to Inter Milan recently but Sevilla seems to be his preferred choice. However, the Merseyside club has shown no indication that they are willing to do business with the La Liga outfit, who only want to take him on loan until the end of the current campaign.
Sturridge has not featured for the Reds since he came on as a late substitute in the emphatic 7-0 thrashing of Spartak Moscow in the UEFA Champions League group stages during the first week of December and has not travelled with Jurgen Klopp’s squad for the Premier League clash at Swansea City on Monday night. It is understood that Liverpool want to offload the striker on a permanent deal in this transfer window with the forward desperate to secure regular first-team football in the second half of the season to try and play his way into contention for Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which kicks off later this year.
Sturridge reckons that his best opportunity to reignite his career is at Spain playing for Sevilla, who have only scored 26 goals in 20 league games this season. Meanwhile, the Reds has been prolific in front of goal this term, scoring 54 goals in 23 league matches which makes them the second highest scorers in the Premier League behind league leaders Manchester City.
It has largely been due to the success of their front three which consists of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah with 50 goals in between them so far in all competitions. Hence, Sturridge has fallen down the pecking order under Jurgen Klopp with a potential January move out of Merseyside looking increasingly likely before the end of this month.
A switch to Sevilla could definitely benefit his career and the 28-year-old has shown in the past how prolific he can be in front of goal. The Birmingham born forward has just featured in 14 matches for the Reds in this season, scoring 3 goals while also providing 3 assists in all competitions. One of his major concerns has been his poor record with injuries during his career. However, if fit, Sturridge can undoubtedly perform at the top level and be a natural goal-scorer.
It remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of the Liverpool outcast and whether he can stay fit for the remainder of the season to force his way into the England squad for the World Cup.
