Sturridge linked with a switch to France
Daniel Sturridge has been widely linked with a move to French champions Paris Saint-Germain in many of today's national papers. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic's contract up in the summer and Edinson Cavani continuing to be linked with a move to England, the Parisians are believed to be in the market for a new striker and see the Liverpool man as the man to assume the goalscoring mantle.
However if Laurent Blanc is to get his man, it is believed that PSG would have to part company with a fee of around £50 million for the 26-year-old's services. Sturridge has been plagued by injury problems in the past couple of seasons and if such a huge amount of money was on offer for a player who so often finds himself sidelined, Liverpool may well be tempted to cash in.
PSG are reportedly set to send delegates to the England v Holland game on Tuesday to cast their eye over the striker although a move will only go through if they can offload Uruguay striker Cavani and his £215,000 per week wages.
Despite the rumours, the bookies currently do not see this one as having much legs with Skybet not even including PSG in their market for Sturridge's next club. According to Skybet, Arsenal are club most likely to sign the England frontman although the odds are out at 7/1 for that one to happen. Former clubs Manchester City and Chelsea are also featured as are West Ham but it remains very unlikely that Liverpool would sell to a domestic rival.
William Hill are offering a market on the striker's future, simply a yes or no with Sturridge to still be a Liverpool player after the summer 2016 transfer window. Due to the lack of specific destinations in this market however, the odds remain short for him to depart Anfield. William Hill have odds of 7/4 that he will not be a Liverpool player on the 1st of September and offer a price of just 2/5 that he will still be there.
Sturridge certainly seems to be well ahead of Christian Benteke in the pecking order as Liverpool's first choice centre forward and if he is able to remain fit and firing until the end of the season, it would be unlikely that Jurgen Klopp would want to cash in.
If the unlikely move does go through however, Liverpool would reportedly look to sign Juventus and Spain striker Alvaro Morata as his replacement.
