Ian Wright offers transfer advice to Liverpool striker
Ian Wright says Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge needs to take his chance to put himself in the January transfer window
Ian Wright has urged Daniel Sturridge to seize his chance to impress in the Liverpool team ahead of the January transfer window.
The England international has found his first-team opportunities limited at Anfield following Jurgen Klopp’s appointment as manager.
The Liverpool boss has preferred Brazil international Roberto Firmino to lead the line in the 2016-17 Premier League campaign.
Sturridge is still waiting to score his first top-flight goal of the season, although the Liverpool star netted twice in a 2-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur in the League Cup quarter-final at Anfield.
The 26-year-old scored England’s opening goal in a 3-0 victory over Scotland in their recent 2018 World Cup qualifier at Wembley.
His team-mate Adam Lallana picked up a hamstring injury during the international clash which has presented Sturridge with a chance to shine in the midfielder’s absence.
Former Arsenal striker Wright offered Sturridge some advice ahead of the January transfer window.
“Daniel Sturridge has a massive few months coming up,” Wright told The Sun Goals app podcast.
“Even if he does nick a few goals, I don’t know what is going to happen with him and Jurgen Klopp in January. It’s a good opportunity for him to put himself in the window and score some goals.”
Sturridge moved to Liverpool in a £12m deal from their bitter rivals Chelsea in 2013.
