Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge could opt to move abroad and he seeks regular first-team football.


The England international is keen to secure more game time as concerns are growing over his inclusion in Gareth Southgate’s squad ahead of the World Cup in Russia next Summer.

Southgate has stated that he wants his players to be featuring regularly for their club side and that has cast serious doubt over whether the twenty-eight year old will be on the plane.

The former Manchester City and Chelsea man was left out of the recent squad for the friendlies against Brazil and Germany, with Jurgen Klopp questioning why Sturridge was omitted.

But Klopp has limited the amount of time Sturridge has spent on the pitch this season after he struggled for fitness during the German’s first full season in charge at Anfield.


Rumours have been rife that he will be allowed to find himself a new club during next month’s transfer window and plenty of links to Premier League clubs have surfaced.

But now The Daily Mail are reporting that he is considering the option of heading to Spain to play in La Liga, with Valencia and Real Betis said to be closely monitoring his situation.

A permanent transfer appears to be out of the window for those clubs, however, with the fee Liverpool are likely to demand for Sturridge being out of their budget.

So they are likely to put in offers to take him on loan for the second half of the campaign to boost their options and give him the chance to win back his place in the England squad.

Klopp’s priority will be keeping his options strong at Anfield, however.
