French champions Paris Saint-Germain are eyeing up a summer move for Liverpool’s out-of-favour forward Daniel Sturridge, according to The Mirror.
The England international has been restricted to just five Premier League starts this season, the last of which coming all the way back on January 2 when he netted in their 2-2 draw with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
With the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Sadio Mane back from injury and international duty respectively, the 27-year-old will struggle to get into the first team between now and May, and that is likely to bring his future at Anfield under the spotlight come the summer.
And clubs are already keeping tabs on Sturridge’s situation at Anfield, with Unai Emery’s Paris Saint-Germain reportedly hoping to secure a deal for the forward in the summer transfer window.
The striker is still hugely prolific and has before proven to be one of the most deadly strikers in the Premier League, and for a PSG side chasing European glory over the coming years, he could be a perfect acquisition in their quest to win the Champions League.
With known Premier League interest from just Stoke and West Ham, PSG are certainly the early frontrunners for Sturridge, and it’s a move that could definitely happen in the summer should the forward’s situation at Anfield not improve.
