Liverpool £120,000-a-week star could join Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur are keen on signing Daniel Sturridge at the end of his Liverpool contract this summer.

The striker’s contract expires this summer, and Tottenham Hotspur can sign him for free, and several clubs are interested in the services of the England international.

It is claimed the 29-year-old frontman is wanted by London rivals as back-up to Harry Kane, with Fernando Llorente set to leave at the end of this campaign.

Daniel Sturridge has found it challenging to dislodge the Reds’ regular front three of Roberto Frimino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah these past two years, and ended the last season on loan to West Bromwich Albion.

Signing the Englishman, who earns £120,000-a-week at Liverpool, would help to boost Spurs’ number of home-grown players.

Daniel Sturridge has netted 77 goals in 213 games at Premier League level.

Neither man has managed to impress in his absence, and the club is now preparing to offer Daniel Sturridge a two-year shock deal, having identified the experienced forward as a perfect back-up forward.

Jurgen Klopp decided against offering the former Chelsea man a new contract mainly because he has declined to hold down a regular spot in his starting eleven, but also due to the consistent fitness issues which have blighted his career.

At Spurs, it is unlikely that he will be used regularly, but with only England captain Harry Kane ahead of him in the pecking order, the compatriot might be able to contribute more frequently than he has at Anfield.
