Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is hoping to earn a new deal with the club.
The England international is out of contract at the end of the season and is hoping that he can regain his best form in order to be given the offer of an extension.
Sturridge, who turned twenty-nine years of age last month, has gone about things the right way so far this season with four goals to his name already despite limited game time.
The former Chelsea and Manchester City forward found the net immediately after coming off the bench against West Ham on the opening weekend of the campaign.
He went on to score against Paris Saint Germain in the first round of Champions League fixtures in what was his first start since returning to the club from a disappointing loan spell with relegated West Brom.
That was followed by a goal in each of the games against former side Chelsea in the League Cup and Premier League – and that helped to see Sturridge gather further determination to succeed.
“I’m always trying to push myself to the next level and contribute as best I can to the team to allow us to be successful.” he said.
“I feel like we’ve been very unlucky actually over the last few years not to win something, so hopefully this’ll be the season when we can achieve that.
“But there’s a long way to go, there’s a lot of obstacles to overcome before we get to that stage when we can talk about trophies and these things.
“It’s important to stay focused throughout the season to get to the end – and hopefully have something to be excited about at the end.” he finished.
Sturridge was named as the player of the month for September after a fan poll.
