Liverpool FC have a big decision to make surrounding Daniel Sturridge’s future, Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth has claimed.

The England international was sent out on loan to West Bromwich Albion in the second half of the 2017-18 season.

Sturridge was unable to help the Baggies avoid relegation to the Championship as the striker struggled with injury problems.

The 28-year-old has failed to hold down a regular starting spot in the Liverpool FC team since Jurgen Klopp’s appointment.

The former Chelsea FC striker has struggled with a lengthy list of injury problems since his £12m move to Liverpool FC from Chelsea FC.

Sky Sports News reporter Sheth believes Sturridge is facing a decisive summer at the Anfield outfit.

“It’s a big decision for Sturridge and the club,” Sheth told the Transfer Talk podcast.

“Klopp hasn’t ruled out keeping him. It is crunch time. He has entered the final year of his contract.

“Do Liverpool want to cash in now? He would be a handy Plan B.”

Liverpool FC have signed Brazil international Fabinho in a £39m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco in the current transfer window.

The Reds have also signed Guinea international Naby Keita in a £48m switch from RB Leipzig after the two clubs agreed a deal last summer.

Liverpool FC snapped up Swiss star Xherdan Shaqiri in a £13.5m deal from Stoke City.

Alisson Becker completed a £66m move to Liverpool FC from AS Roma last week.
