Daniel Sturridge says he is determined to stay at Liverpool FC and fight for a place in the first team next season.

The 28-year-old striker’s future at Anfield has inevitably been called into question this summer after he struggled to hold down a spot at the Merseyside outfit last term and ended up being shipped off to West Bromwich Albion on loan.

The striker was not called up to the England squad for this summer’s World Cup in Russia as the Three Lions made it to the semi-finals of the tournament.

Sturridge has inevitably been linked with a move away from Anfield this summer due to his lack of playing time under Jurgen Klopp.

However, the former Chelsea FC man now says that he is planning to stay at Liverpool FC and fight for a starting spot under Klopp at Anfield.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Sky Sports, Sturridge said: “I see myself staying at Liverpool, hopefully being part of the team week in, week out.

“Pre-season is going well, so for me it’s keeping my head down and building on that. I’m excited about the season ahead and it feels great to be back.”

Liverpool FC have already brought in Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri so far this summer as Klopp looks to build a squad capable of winning the title next season.

The Reds ended up in fourth place in the Premier League table and without a trophy last season as they missed out on the Champions League title.
