England international forward Daniel Sturridge is reportedly ready to leave Liverpool during the forthcoming January transfer window, according to the Mirror.
The Premier League side, who currently sit top of the English top-flight by one point after their opening 11 league games, could lose the striker in the new year period after becoming frustrated with his first-team opportunities at Anfield.
The 27-year-old, who has 25 international caps for his country and scored for England against rivals Scotland last week, has netted four times and provided two assists in 10 appearances in all competitions for The Reds so far this season.
Sturridge, who joined Liverpool from Premier League rivals Chelsea back in January 2013 following his reported £12m switch, is currently behind Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi in Jurgen Klopp’s pecking order on Merseyside.
The report suggests that West Ham United and Stoke City are interested in the forward’s services, which could spark a £28m battle for his signature in January.
