5 Destinations for Daniel Sturridge to Reignite His Career If He Leaves Liverpool This Sumer

While Liverpool have doubtless improved since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp, Daniel Sturridge, however, has gone from being the frequently-injured main man to a sulking fringe player. With the end of the season fast approaching, here are five teams that could reignite the fire for Sturridge and give him the love he needs to restore his reputation as one of England's best finishers... The London club actually seemed a pretty likely move for Sturridge, who spent several years in the capital with...


Alexis Sanchez has been the main man up front for the majority of this season and Olivier Giroud has performed well, often scoring when called upon. 

However, this hasn't stopped fans from calling for the club to sign another striker to take them to the next level. When fit, Sturridge is capable of doing just that and would create a terrifying trio alongside Sanchez and Mesut Ozil...if they both stay (and at the club).

The Gunners seem the most unlikely destination in the list though as it might take a huge offer (plus £1) to tempt the Reds to sell to a direct rival.

Manchester City

Similar to Arsenal, Manchester City are a direct rival and it would take a lot to make Liverpool sell. However, Pep Guardiola's side have the upper hand due to the fact that the forward spent six years there and has admitted himself that the club will always be 'in his heart.'

With Gabriel Jesus hitting the ground running, Sergio Aguero has found himself on the bench and is reportedly unhappy with the situation and could leave in the summer.

Whilst it seems a little unlikely that Sturridge would want to swap his current situation for a very similar one at the Etihad, he'd be at least second in the pecking order as opposed to third behind Firmino and Origi.

Any MLS Club

English players rarely move abroad but when they do, they often end up in America. At just 27, Sturridge is a lot younger than most top players who cross the Atlantic to join another club, but his injury problems make him something of an exception.

Whilst it would probably lead him to be overlooked when it comes to international duty, the striker just wants first-team action and has also said on numerous occasions that he wants to produce music when he retires. 

Where better than the United States of America?

Any Chinese Super League Club

Emerging out of nowhere in recent years, Chinese Super League clubs are snapping up top players for ridiculous fees left, right and centre. 

Given his injury problems, it'll be difficult for Liverpool to get anything near what a player of Sturridge's ability ought to be worth...Unless they sell him to a Chinese Club who would probably offer somewhere in the region of £50m to £500m depending on what mood they're in.

It wouldn't be the most ambitious move for Sturridge, who would probably prefer to stay in England, but it would guarantee first-team action and ridiculous wages if he did go.

West Ham

The London club actually seemed a pretty likely move for Sturridge, who spent several years in the capital with Chelsea, until thy fell apart at the start of the season.

They have picked themselves up a bit since then and have been desperately bidding for every striker on the face of the Earth since the start of the season.

Having already signed Andy Carroll for £18m from the Anfield side, the Hammers seem like the kind of club that would be willing to risk it all for another injury-prone Liverpool forward and could use that Dimitri Payet money to come up with an offer.
