LONDON — Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge is demanding a staggering £80 000 a week to move to Liverpool in January.
Report by Daily Mirror
The Reds have already asked Chelsea about their reserve striker’s availability, and look set to follow up their interest, which dates back to the summer, in the winter transfer window.
There is a feeling at Anfield, however, that Sturridge has done little in the last 12 months to justify such big wages since his fine start to last season.
Back then, he scored 10 goals playing wide in an attacking three under Andre Villas-Boas. But since last December, he has scored just five times for the European Champions.
The 23-year-old’s camp also insists he must play through the middle if he were to move to Liverpool next month. Liverpool are keen not to repeat the financial mistakes of past windows after big signings.
