Phil Thompson: This player won’t be at Liverpool next season
Phil Thompson is expecting Daniel Sturridge to leave Liverpool in the summer transfer window
Phil Thompson is tipping Daniel Sturridge to leave Liverpool in the summer transfer window.
The striker has struggled for form and fitness this season and has failed to hold down a regular spot in the first team during Jurgen Klopp’s first full season at the club.
Indeed, Sturridge has only made five Premier League starts for the Reds so far this season, with his last appearance coming during the 2-0 loss to Hull City back in February.
The England international’s lack of playing time this season is likely to prompt speculation linking Sturridge with a summer transfer away from the club.
And former Liverpool star Thompson feels that Sturridge is likely to be on his way out of Anfield in the summer transfer window.
Speaking on Sky Sports News HQ on Wednesday, Thompson bluntly said: “I don’t think he will be at Liverpool [next season].”
Liverpool were held to a frustrating 2-2 draw by Bournemouth in the Premier League on Wednesday night.
The Reds return to Premier League action with a trip to Stoke City on Saturday afternoon.
