Daniel Sturridge facing Liverpool exit: Jurgen Klopp wants to sign new striker

DANIEL STURRIDGE faces an uncertain future at Liverpool with Jurgen Klopp reportedly targeting a new striker.

Daniel Sturridge has been used sparingly by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp this season, preferring Roberto Firmino as his central striker.

Sturridge scored in England’s 3-0 World Cup qualifier over Scotland on Friday and could start against Spain in the friendly on Tuesday after Tottenham’s Harry Kane pulled out.

But his chances of first-team football appear slim at club level, despite the 27-year-old finally fit after overcoming his injury troubles.

And according to The Sunday People, they could get worse with Jurgen Klopp looking to sign a new striker when the transfer window opens in January.

Jurgen Klopp recently lost Danny Ings to another season-ending knee injury and could be without Sadio Mane for a month when he goes to the Africa Cup of Nations with Senegal.

It is said Klopp wants to sign a No 9, which would increase competition for places for Sturridge.

Liverpool also have Divock Origi as a striker option, but like Sturridge he has largely been reduced to a bit-part role.

Sturridge, 27, has not scored a Premier League goal this season but his six strikes in 14 games for club and country.

Liverpool sit top of the Premier League, a point ahead of Chelsea, and travel to Southampton after the international break.
