DANIEL STURRIDGE is heading towards the Liverpool exit door.
That’s according to pundit Charlie Nicholas.
The England international, who joined the Reds in 2013 from Chelsea, has struggled to make an impact for Jurgen Klopp this season – he has started just five Premier League games this season.
Operating primarily from the bench, Sturridge has only scored two Premier League games in 13 games for Liverpool during a difficult spell for the 27-year-old.
- Southampton – EFL Cup (H) – Wed 25 Jan
- Wolves – FA Cup (H) – Sat 28 Jan
- Chelsea (H) – Tue 31 Jan
- Hull (A) – Sat 4 Feb
- Tottenham (H) – Sat 11 Feb
- Leicester (A) – Mon 27 Feb
- Arsenal (H) – Sat 4 Mar
The ex-Manchester City forward has been linked with a January switch in order to revive his career and Nicholas reckons the striker isn’t in Klopp’s plans and he’s on his way out.
“Sturridge is struggling for that change of pace that makes him a special footballer and he’s dwindling towards the exit door for me,” Nicholas told Sky Sports.
“I think he’ll still make a contribution to their season but he’s not a key ingredient to Jurgen Klopp’s team.”
