Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge on a free transfer in the summer, according to reports in the Mirror (February 12, page 56).

Sturridge’s contract at Anfield is set to expire this summer and he is reportedly listening to offers both in England and abroad.

However, it’s claimed that the striker is keen to stay in the Premier League with Spurs weighing up an end of season swoop.

Spurs see the 29-year-old as a good back-up to their star forward Harry Kane with Fernando Llorente is set to leave the club in the summer.

Spurs have struggled to replace Harry Kane when the England captain has been sidelined.

Sturridge has struggled to get into the starting line-up for the Reds in recent seasons as their superb attacking trio of Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have been on top form.

This resulted in the ex-Chelsea man spending the second half of last term on loan at West Brom in order to get some playing time under his belt.

However, the move failed to work out for the player who made just six appearances for the Baggies after picking up yet another injury in just his third appearance for the club.

Sturridge has scored 77 goals in 213 games in the Premier League and, on paper, would be a good fit for Spurs as it would bolster their number of homegrown players as well as adding genuine experience and quality to their ranks.
