Daniel Sturridge is ready to leave Liverpool FC in the January transfer window to keep alive his hopes of featuring at the World Cup for England, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the 28-year-old striker has “decided” that he is likely to have to leave Anfield if he wants to earn a call-up for the Three Lions for the tournament in Russia.

Sturridge has been an unused substitute in both Liverpool FC’s last two games against Southampton and West Ham United in the Premier League.

Indeed, the 28-year-old has only been limited to four starts in all competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s men so far this season.

According to the same report, Sturridge’s decision to quit Liverpool FC will spark a “scramble” for his signature, because he’s regarded as one of the finest finishers in the country.

Sturridge has scored three goals and made two assists in all competitions for the Merseyside outfit this season but he has found his game-time to be severely restricted under Klopp.

Liverpool FC are currently preparing for their Champions League clash against Sevilla in Spain on Tuesday night as Klopp’s men look to book their place in the last 16 of Europe’s elite club competition.
