England international striker Daniel Sturridge is reportedly ready to quit Liverpool, according to the Mirror.
The Premier League side, who comfortably defeated Southampton 3-0 at Anfield in the top-flight on Saturday afternoon, risk losing the forward during the forthcoming January transfer window.
The 28-year-old, who has 26 international caps for his country, has scored three goals and provided two assists in 12 appearances in all competitions for The Reds so far this season.
Sturridge, who arrived at Anfield back in January 2013 following his reported £12m switch from Premier League rivals Chelsea, has netted an impressive 64 times in 131 games overall for the Merseyside outfit.
However, the report suggests the striker is ready to quit Jurgen Klopp’s side in a bid to save his World Cup dream ahead of next summer’s finals in Russia.
He has been an unused substitute in Liverpool’s last two Premier League fixtures, and has started just four league games this term. A permanent, or loan, move away from Anfield is possible during the New Year market.
