Three Premier League clubs are reportedly interested in signing former Liverpool striker, Daniel Sturridge, as they look to bolster their attacking options before the transfer deadline on Friday.
Sturridge, who left Liverpool in 2019 after a successful six-year spell with the club, is currently a free agent. The 31-year-old has been without a club since leaving Turkish side Trabzonspor last year.
According to reports, the three clubs interested in signing Sturridge are Aston Villa, Newcastle United, and Sheffield United. All three teams are said to be keen on adding more goals to their squads as they aim to improve their positions in the league.
Sturridge’s career has been plagued by injuries in recent years, but he has shown glimpses of his talent whenever he has been fit. During his time at Liverpool, he formed a deadly partnership with Luis Suarez and was instrumental in the club’s title challenge in the 2013-2014 season.
The English striker has also had spells at Chelsea and Manchester City earlier in his career, and his experience in the Premier League could be an asset for any team looking to sign him.
Sturridge’s availability as a free agent makes him an attractive option for clubs looking to strengthen their squads without spending a significant amount of money. However, his injury record may be a concern for potential suitors.
It remains to be seen which club will secure Sturridge’s signature before the transfer deadline. Aston Villa, Newcastle United, and Sheffield United will need to act quickly if they want to bring in the experienced striker to boost their attacking options for the remainder of the season.
With just days remaining in the January transfer window, all eyes will be on these Premier League clubs as they look to make the most of the opportunity to strengthen their squads before the deadline.
