Liverpool rejected a loan approach from Paris Saint-Germain for striker Daniel Sturridge in January, according to Goal.com.
What’s the word?
The England international has turned into the forgotten man at Anfield due to injuries and lack of form.
Sturridge has made 21 appearances in all competitions under manager Jurgen Klopp this season, and has started just five Premier League games.
Goal.com reports that PSG saw Sturridge as an ideal forward partner for Edinson Cavani, but Liverpool did not entertain the notion of a loan deal.
The website claims that Klopp had no intention of letting any of his players leave in the middle of the season, but it is still uncertain whether Sturridge has a future at Anfield.
What should he do?
It is clear that Sturridge is not favoured by Klopp given that he is below Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi in the pecking order.
It has been a sharp drop for the striker, who formed a deadly attack with Luis Suarez during the 2013-14 campaign.
A lack of game time and injuries has limited Sturridge to just six goals in all competitions this season.
The best option for the 27-year-old is to search for pastures new in order to get his club career back on track and possibly revive his England career.
The problem with Sturridge is injuries, and at the moment he struggles to stay fit for a lengthy period of time, which is likely to be a cause for concern for any potential suitors.
From the player’s point of view, a loan move could be favourable, but Liverpool will probably want something more permanent if Sturridge is not prepared to be a squad player.
