Karius: I have to show my worth - for now and the long-term

LiverpoolFC.TV - Fri, 19/01/2018 - 11:50

Loris Karius is determined to prove himself worthy of the chance Jürgen Klopp has given him to be Liverpool's regular goalkeeper.

After continuing his role between the posts in the cup competitions for the Anfield victory over Everton, the German was selected again when Manchester City visited in the Premier League last weekend.

On the day, the manager confirmed that the position is the 24-year-old’s to retain, stating: “Usually I could say it’s a decision for today but if Loris now is able to perform, he will stay in the goal.”

Karius was naturally encouraged by those words, of course, but is conscious of the need to repay Klopp’s faith in him with a series of consistent displays.

“Now you are back in goal you have to prove yourself and show how good you are to stay No.1 in the long-term, not just for the moment, to prove maybe I’m the long-term No.1 that can be in goal here for Liverpool for years to come,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.

“But that’s far ahead. So, for right now I just want to help the team in the remaining four months of the season to reach our goals and do well.”

The No.1, who has played 11 times this term, continued: “That’s what I’ve been working towards since I was left out.

“I’ve been using the Champions League to get game time and prove myself. That was very good for me. There were not that many games but it’s the highest level you can play on.

“I had a few league games now and then but, of course, now it’s going to be different playing every week. It’s nice, it’s great to hear and I can’t wait to be in goal again next week.”

The Reds journey to Wales for their next Premier League outing, a meeting with Swansea City – currently bottom of the division – on Monday evening.

They do so with confidence high thanks to the exhilarating 4-3 triumph over the leaders, City, on Sunday, but Karius insisted Liverpool must move on from that result.

“Straight after the game everyone was very happy and pleased,” he said. “The next day, we spoke about the game and of course we were all in a good mood.

“We had a day off and now we’re back in training. It’s not [about] looking back too much, it’s [about] preparing for the next one. There are so many important games to come. We only got three points out of it – that was our aim and we’re very pleased. But now it’s onto the next one.”

Karius will now prepare to be part of the XI selected at the Liberty Stadium.

The opportunity in his hands will not have an influence on the stopper’s approach, however. “There is always pressure. You can turn it any way you want,” he added.

“You can say if you are the challenger that you need to be doing very well every time you come in, or you can’t have a bad game as a No.1. That’s just our job and the pressure comes with it. I don’t really see it as pressure.”

Liverpool Under-18s coach Steven Gerrard wants to build winning culture

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 22:49

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard’s winning mentality remains undimmed now he is a coach and his under-18 players will not need reminding of that this weekend.


His side host Arsenal in the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup which, at Gerrard’s request, will be played at Anfield on Saturday with a 3pm kick-off.

The youth team boss wants to see how his players cope under the pressure of a big-game atmosphere, but more importantly he wants them to bring home some silverware this season.

“I’d love some of these players to go on and play for Liverpool’s first team, I’d be the proudest man in the city, but I’m not coming in and taking a job at this football club if it’s just about that,” he said.

“If we’re not teaching kids about the importance of winning at a young age then maybe someone should say to me ‘You’re not welcome here’.

“That doesn’t float my boat – turning up on the weekend and it’s just about getting one player to the first team.

“I’m doing a disservice to football and the game if I’m saying to these that winning doesn’t matter because it does.”

Gerrard will not be able to call on the injured Rhian Brewster, golden boot winner as England were victorious at last summer’s Under-17 World Cup, but he could receive a boost if senior Wales international Ben Woodburn is made available by Jurgen Klopp.

Brewster, who has spent most of the season with Liverpool’s Under-23s, was in Gerrard’s thoughts before an ankle injury in Friday’s defeat to Manchester City which is likely to rule out the 17-year-old for some time.

“I don’t know the full extent but it is going to be a good while. I do not know the complete time-scale. He has further tests (in London),” Gerrard added.

Asked about the availability of Woodburn, who has played for him in the UEFA Youth League this season, Gerrard said: “I haven’t asked the question and no-one has mentioned it to me thus far so, at the moment, it’s a no.

“That might change in the next 24 hours.”

– Tickets for Saturday’s tie cost £3 for adults and £1 for juniors, young adults and over-65s.

Jurgen Klopp’s winter rotation shows squad depth will be key factor in second half of season

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 21:56

Liverpool’s long unbeaten run over winter is impressive, but key January departures have to be replaced if the Reds are to maintain their challenge on three fronts.


Looking at a strong top-four challenge, still in the FA Cup and competing in the knock-outs of the Champions League, 2018 could get off to a very interesting start for Jurgen Klopp‘s team.

Of course, quality will dictate just how far any push for honours go, but quantity is important too: the squad depth must be tended to.

Much was made of the boss’ tendency to swap players with such frequency as the fixtures piled up, but the points tally speaks for itself.

Across November and December in particular, the switches came with regularity, putting Klopp way out in front for number of changes to his starting XI for the Premier League season.

Indeed, for most Premier League seasons.

59 – Liverpool have made 59 changes to their starting XI so far this season in the league; only one team have made more in their opening 16 games to a Premier League campaign (Man Utd; 68 in 2001-02). Tinker. pic.twitter.com/N9eGU9t6oI

But the results came, and fewer injuries were accumulated. Jordan Henderson suffered a spell out, and Daniel Sturridge has too, but few others: a week or so for Mohamed Salah, a short span for Dejan Lovren, a longer one for Alberto Moreno.

Considering the Reds played 15 matches in exactly two months, it was far from the devastation to the regular team it might have been.

And, it’s 18 matches unbeaten now since the fiasco at Wembley. With the likes of Swansea, West Brom and Huddersfield up next, it could go on a while longer yet.

Klopp has managed his squad well; even those who were out of the team for long stretches at the start of the campaign have been eased, or thrown, in to great effect.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain represents the best example of the former, while Andy Robertson‘s lung-busting breakthrough definitely comes under the latter heading.

For the first time in too long, it feels as though Liverpool almost have a deep squad which can cope with most injury build-ups…almost.

The defence had been stretched thin from time to time—notably with all three centre-backs on ice at one point—but Virgil van Dijk‘s arrival should fix those worries. Full-back is fine, with two on each side, James Milner as cover and others who can fill in.

Midfield similarly looks reasonably deep: Henderson and Emre Can as the No. 6, Gini Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Adam Lallana all options for the 8s. Milner, again, is cover throughout.

It’s arguable that one more quality addition would be beneficial, particularly following Philippe Coutinho‘s departure, but it’s not essential for the pure numbers.

But in attack, the Reds’ situation is more precarious; that Coutinho departure leaves them on the brink.

Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah.

The trio is unstoppable, exciting, relentless…and because of all that, they have to come out from time to time.

Their intensity and explosivity leaves them most prone to fatigue and injury, and there’s not a direct replacement in the squad for each other than shifting Oxlade-Chamberlain into the front line.

Sturridge, with his acceleration and scoring touch seemingly departed, just doesn’t offer the reliability or the reassurance that he can be the primary goal threat again, while Danny Ings and Dominic Solanke don’t have a goal between them.

Barring an unlikely return to prominence for Lazar Markovic, it’s in young talents that any further rotations most come from for Klopp, which makes it paramount that any further departures from the squad are replaced.

There have been rumours, concerning both Sturridge and Ings, that an Anfield exit could be imminent. Ovie Ejaria could leave on loan, Ben Woodburn has been sought after, even Harry Wilson would be snapped up by Championship sides if they were encouraged.

But the Reds cannot afford that, not without replacements.

One injury to a wide forward can just about be dealt with, now that Lallana is back and Henderson returning. The switch, both starting at times and in-game, to a 4-4-2 can also help in this regard.

But a rotation and an injury or suspension hitting at the same time will be tricky to deal with.

Up until the end of February, it won’t be much of an issue. One game a week for the most part, time to train, time to recover.

But come March, if the Reds progress past Porto and West Brom in each cup in turn, the pile-up will come fast once again.

Klopp has already shown he can switch personnel effectively—but only if he’s got the numbers there.

Coutinho’s departure will hit Liverpool hardest not when the remaining three-pronged front line are fit and healthy, but when one is missing.

No replacement midfield schemer isn’t the real issue, not right now at least, but Coutinho provided drive and a goal threat in the final third.

A single departure more and Liverpool, and Klopp, have to act.

The squad has worked wonders to get themselves into this position, but it has very much been a cumulative, group effort—and the same again will be needed in the final weeks and months.

Seri back on the radar and Juve in for Emre Can — Liverpool Transfer Rumour Round-up

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 19:38

Transfer rumours continue to circle over possible ins and outs at Liverpool before the January transfer window shuts.


While most winter windows tend to be filled with outlandish claims and improbable links, many of those featuring the Reds this season seem to be valid, or at least a good fit.

Of course Liverpool won’t end up buying three or four more after Virgil van Dijk‘s arrival, but there’s still the possibility of another new addition to Jurgen Klopp‘s squad.

More likely still is an exit for one or two familiar faces, following on from Philippe Coutinho‘s sale and Marko Grujic‘s exit on loan.

Here is a complete round-up of the latest rumours concerning the Anfield corridors…

Juve confirm approach for Emre

It has been on the cards for weeks, but now it’s confirmed—Emre Can has been approached by Juventus over a summer move.

At present there’s no agreement—Emre himself alluded to as much—but the Turin giants have clearly earmarked him as a key target.

Able to discuss terms freely now over a summer move, Can will doubtless be on the radars of several big clubs thanks to his soon-to-be ended contract.

The German international is, however, still open to the possibility of signing a new contract and extending his stay at Liverpool.

Continual progression, a key role in the team and a strong finish to the campaign could be vital to keeping him beyond summer 2018.

Sturridge tipped for move to Europe

Sky Sports report Sevilla have been in touch with the Reds over a loan move for Daniel Sturridge.

However, no official bid has yet been made and Liverpool are thought to want a permanent move which meets their demands.

Previous rumours have put those demands at around the £30 million mark, while Sturridge’s wages have also been cited as prohibitive for some clubs.

Inter Milan are credited with an interest again elsewhere, as they have been in recent weeks, but Sevilla may make more sense for Sturridge, who wants game time to secure a World Cup spot.

The Spanish side have rotated between Wissam Ben Yedder and Luis Muriel up front this term, but they have netted just five and three goals in La Liga respectively.

It seems a more realistic battle for Sturridge to find a starting role than by heading to Inter, where he would be up against 18-goal Mauro Icardi.

Reds in a four-way battle for Seri

Much of summer 2017 centred around would-be moves by various clubs for Nice midfielder Jean-Michael Seri.

Barcelona had the strongest rumoured interest, though the Reds and other sides were also in the mix—only for the Ivory Coast international to remain in Ligue 1.

Now with just 18 months left on his deal and a €40 million release clause in place, he’s back on clubs’ radars.

The Mirror report Liverpool in a Premier League-wide battle, up against Man United, Man City and Chelsea to snare his signature.

While the suggestion is that the quartet will be in for Seri in the summer, that sort of figure—around £35 million—would barely register for most of those teams if they opted to move right now.

It’s a drop in the ocean compared to the fee received for Coutinho, or the potential money being spent on Alexis Sanchez by the Manchester clubs.

So it’s not entirely inconceivable that, if genuine, the interest could be brought forward by the Reds—particularly after not being able to bring in Naby Keita earlier than planned.

Goretzka remaining in Bundesliga

One of the potential replacements for if Emre Can departed on a free transfer, Leon Goretzka shares similarities with the Reds’ No. 23 and his present situation.

He’s a German central midfielder, out of contract in the summer…and able to discuss terms now with new clubs.

Liverpool had been credited with an interest and made their feelings known to the Schalke man.

But Goretzka’s camp didn’t offer too much in the way of encouragement, report the Echo.

Instead, the Anfield club believe he’s likely to remain in the German top flight, making the switch instead to the league’s most powerful club, Bayern Munich.

It would follow a familiar pattern in the league where the best homegrown players are snapped up by Bayern, strengthening their own team and damaging their rivals at the same time.

Mario Gotze, Mats Hummels, Niklas Sule and Sebastian Rudy have travelled that path of late and Liverpool look set to miss out as the trend continues.

Klopp wants to keep Woodburn around

Young forward Ben Woodburn had been tipped for a loan move for the remainder of the season after playing just once this term for the seniors.

Sunderland was the most likely destination after Chris Coleman, his former boss with the Wales national team setup, took over at the Wearsiders.

But Sky Sports report that the move is now off.

Speculation elsewhere has suggested Jurgen Klopp has personally put an end to the possibility of Woodburn leaving, following the sale of Philippe Coutinho.

If the above Sturridge rumours are true, of course, it stands to reason that the boss wants another attacking option available to him.

For now, Woodburn remains a Liverpool player, but he will certainly hope for more action in the second half of the season.

Jordan Henderson could make his return to Liverpool action after a month out through injuryJordan Henderson could make his return to Liverpool action after a month out through injury Jordan Henderson could make his return to Liverpool action after a month out through injury

Jordan Henderson and Virgil van Dijk have returned to Liverpool training ahead of their clash with Swansea on Monday night, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

Van Dijk, who missed Sunday's 4-3 win over Manchester City with a tight hamstring, could be in line to make his first Premier League appearance for Liverpool since his £75m transfer from Southampton.

Live on

Henderson has been sidelined from first-team action for a month after suffering a hamstring injury in the Reds' 3-3 draw with Arsenal on December 22.

Jurgen Klopp will be hoping his side can continue their momentum after ending Manchester City's 22-game unbeaten start to the season with a win at Swansea.

Liverpool 4-3 Man City Liverpool 4-3 Man City

Van Dijk will be hoping to build on his strong start to life at Anfield, after he scored a late winner in the Merseyside derby against Everton to ensure Liverpool progressed to the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Alberto Moreno was also present at training, the former Sevilla full-back has been out injured since December, however Andy Robertson has laid down his claim to Klopp with a string of impressive performances in recent weeks.

Premier League questions

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 18:09
By Cian Cheesbrough and Richard Morgan

Last Updated: 18/01/18 4:18pm

Will Paul Pogba continue his fine form? We look at this weekend's key questionsWill Paul Pogba continue his fine form? We look at this weekend's key questions Will Paul Pogba continue his fine form? We look at this weekend's key questions

Will Arsenal and Man City bounce back from defeats? Will Paul Pogba continue his fine form? And will Paul Lambert get off to a winning start?

Brighton host Chelsea on Sky Sports Premier League at 12.30pm on Saturday, while Tottenham's trip to Southampton is on the same channel on Super Sunday at 4pm.

On Monday Night Football, we have Swansea v Liverpool from the Liberty Stadium at 8pm on Sky Sports Premier League.

Will Batshuayi step up to the plate for Chelsea? (Brighton v Chelsea, Saturday 12.30pm, live on Sky Sports Premier League)

Michy Batshuayi will have a good chance to fill the shoes of suspended and out-of-form striker Alvaro Morata in Chelsea's visit to Brighton, live on Sky Sports Premier League on Saturday.

Michy Batshuayi could replace Alvaro Morata for Chelsea on SaturdayMichy Batshuayi could replace Alvaro Morata for Chelsea on Saturday Michy Batshuayi could replace Alvaro Morata for Chelsea on Saturday

Chelsea are on a winless run of four in all competitions and have scored just once in those games, against Norwich in the FA Cup.

Brighton vs Chelsea

January 20, 2018, 11:30am

Live on

Brighton may be fancying their chances against a Chelsea side that looks short on confidence of late, however they themselves have recorded just 17 goals in the league this season, with only bottom-of-the-table Swansea scoring fewer.

Kane to pile more misery on struggling Saints? (Southampton v Tottenham, Super Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League 4pm)

Premier League top-scorer Harry Kane will look to add to his 20-goal tally this season as Tottenham travel to Southampton on Super Sunday.

So'ton vs Tottenham

January 21, 2018, 3:30pm

Live on

Kane scored another two goals last week in the impressive 4-0 win against Everton, and also recorded a hat-trick against the Saints on Boxing Day, which saw him set a new record for the most top flight goals scored in a calendar year (39 goals).

Tottenham 4-0 Everton Tottenham 4-0 Everton

Mauricio Pellegrino's side were unlucky not to take all three points last week against Watford, and will be desperate to overturn a run of 10 games without a win in the league - which has seen them slip to just one point above the drop zone.

Will struggling Swansea handle Liverpool's in-form attack? (Swansea v Liverpool, Monday Night Football, live on Sky Sports Premier League, 8pm)

Liverpool head into this encounter on the back of ending Manchester City's unbeaten start to the season with an impressive attacking display at Anfield.

Swansea vs Liverpool

January 22, 2018, 7:00pm

Live on

Liverpool's front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah scored three more goals to take their combined tally to 50 in all competitions this season.

Liverpool 5-0 Swansea Liverpool 5-0 Swansea

Strugglers Swansea returned to the foot the table after West Brom's win against Brighton so will be keen to claim an unlikely win on Monday Night Football at the Liberty Stadium.

Liverpool hit five with no return in the reverse fixture of this on Boxing Day, so Swansea will be determined to seek revenge under new boss Carlos Carvalhal.

Arsenal to get back to winning ways? (Arsenal v Crystal Palace, Saturday 3pm)

Arsenal head into Saturday's London derby with in-form Crystal Palace in urgent need of a win following a poor recent run of form.

Arsene Wenger's side have slipped to sixth in the Premier League, and eight points adrift of the fourth and final Champions League berth, after failing to win any of their last five matches in all competitions.

Arsene Wenger's Arsenal host Crystal Palace on SaturdayArsene Wenger's Arsenal host Crystal Palace on Saturday Arsene Wenger's Arsenal host Crystal Palace on Saturday

In fact, the Gunners' last victory came against Palace at Selhurst Park on December 28, while their previously dominant home form has also disappeared.

After a run of 12 consecutive league wins at the Emirates, Arsenal have now won just one of their last four in north London, meaning they can afford no more slip-ups against the Eagles.

Will Pogba continue his recent good form? (Burnley v Man Utd, Saturday 3pm)

Paul Pogba will be relishing Manchester United's trip to Burnley on Saturday afternoon having been in eye-catching form since his return from suspension.

Pogba's two assists in the Monday Night Football clash with Stoke City took his tally for the season to nine in just 13 Premier League games, with no player having recorded more than the Frenchman, who also managed two more in United's previous fixture at Everton.

Man Utd 3-0 Stoke Man Utd 3-0 Stoke

At Turf Moor this weekend, Burnley - who themselves have not won any of their last seven contests in all competitions - will need to pay close attention to a player who has been directly involved in 14 goals in his last 14 top-flight encounters (four goals, 10 assists).

Will the Baggies make it back-to-back wins? (Everton v West Brom, Saturday 3pm)

West Brom ended their 20-game winless run in the Premier League with a much-needed 2-0 home victory over Brighton last time out.

Alan Pardew's side remain deep in trouble though ahead of their trip to Merseyside to take on Everton on Saturday afternoon, with the Baggies 19th in the table and two points from safety.

West Brom are looking for back-to-back Premier League winsWest Brom are looking for back-to-back Premier League wins West Brom are looking for back-to-back Premier League wins

So what better time for West Brom to record back-to-back league victories for the first time since their opening two matches of the campaign against an out-of-sorts Everton team who have not won themselves since beating bottom-of-the-table Swansea City at Goodison Park on December 18.

Will Paul Lambert silence his critics with a win in his first game in charge? (Stoke v Huddersfield, Saturday 3pm)

Paul Lambert will be keen to get off to a good start as Stoke City boss with his side having won just one of their last eight Premier League games.

Lambert was seemingly the third-choice candidate behind Quique Sanchez Florez and Martin O'Neill for the hot-seat, which has left many Stoke fans underwhelmed by the appointment.

West Brom are looking for back-to-back Premier League winsWest Brom are looking for back-to-back Premier League wins West Brom are looking for back-to-back Premier League wins

Huddersfield at home will surely be as good a chance as any prove those critics wrong in his first game; the Terriers themselves were turned over 4-1 last week by West Ham.

Watford to return to winning ways at Leicester? (Leicester v Watford, Saturday 3pm)

Watford will be looking to return to form against Leicester City, who were unlucky to not gain all three points from an impressive display away against Chelsea last time out in the league.

Watford's last win in the Premier League actually came against Leicester on Boxing Day, and they can consider themselves fortunate to escape with a point against struggling Southampton after a contentious last-minute equaliser.

Watford 2-2 Southampton Watford 2-2 Southampton

To have a chance of winning, Watford will surely have to keep a close eye on in-form winger Riyad Mahrez, who has been directly involved in a goal in five of his last six games in all competitions for Leicester City (two goals, four assists).

West Ham or Bournemouth to push themselves further away from the drop zone? (West Ham v Bournemouth, Saturday 3pm)

Both West Ham and Bournemouth will be looking to record back-to-back wins in the league after impressive victories against Huddersfield and Arsenal respectively.

West Ham have not recorded two league wins in a row since January last year, and will be buoyed by their recent upturn in form under Manager David Moyes.

Marko Arnautovic celebrates scoring a late goal at Bournemouth on Boxing DayMarko Arnautovic celebrates scoring a late goal at Bournemouth on Boxing Day Marko Arnautovic celebrates scoring a late goal at Bournemouth on Boxing Day

Bournemouth, however, lost 3-0 at League One Wigan on Wednesday night in the FA Cup, but will look to pick up where they left off in the Premier League.

Both teams can move up to 10th with a win on Saturday and will want to further distance themselves from the drop zone.

Man City to bounce back with a win against Newcastle? (Man City v Newcastle, Saturday 5.30pm)

Table-topping Manchester City suffered their first defeat of the season in a thrilling 4-3 defeat against Liverpool on Super Sunday.

City have been dominant in the Premier League this season but were blown away by a stunning second-half display by Liverpool.

Liverpool 4-3 Man City Liverpool 4-3 Man City

Pep Guardiola will have a good chance to bounce back against Newcastle, who themselves could only manage a point against bottom club Swansea in their last game.

There is a subdued mood around Newcastle at the moment following the collapse of the sale of the club to businesswoman Amanda Staveley and City will look to take advantage of that with a win on Saturday.

VAR to be used for Reds' FA Cup tie with West Brom

LiverpoolFC.TV - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 17:59

Anfield will see the use of a video assistant referee for the first time in its history when Liverpool take on West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup fourth round later this month.

The Football Association have announced VAR will be in place for the tie, which will be played on Saturday January 27.

It’ll be the first time the Reds have played a competitive fixture with the technology in operation.

Three previous FA Cup ties have used VAR so far this season, most recently on Tuesday evening when Kelechi Iheanacho became the first player in English football history to have a goal awarded following consultation with a video assistant referee in Leicester City’s third-round replay against Fleetwood Town.

VAR to be used for FA Cup 4th round clash against West Brom at Anfield

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 17:56

The FA have confirmed that a video assistant referee will be in place for Liverpool’s home FA Cup tie against West Brom on January 27.


It was originally a possibility for the Reds to feature in a third-round clash using VAR technology—but a Merseyside derby against Everton, as it turned out to be, was thought to be too high-profile a game for a testing ground.

Now the FA have confirmed on Thursday that VAR will be in use at Anfield for the fourth round instead.

It will be only the fourth time the technology will have been in use this term as England trial VAR in the FA Cup.

The visit of West Brom comes after the Reds’ next fixture, away to Swansea on Monday night, and will be shown live on BT Sport.

A midweek FA Cup replay between Chelsea and Norwich saw the use of VAR criticised after several high-profile refereeing decisions were not overturned.

Sevilla approach Liverpool over Daniel Sturridge loan move

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 17:33

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is a target for Sevilla, and the Spanish club have reportedly made contact with the Reds over a move.


Sturridge has been behind Roberto Firmino for a centre-forward spot this season, while even Dominic Solanke—still without a goal for the Reds—has been preferred at times.

The No. 15 has missed the last nine matches with injury and the Reds have not shown too many signs of missing him, roaring to a five-match win streak of late and scoring 15 goals in the process.

Inter Milan have previously been rumoured to want Sturridge for the remainder of the season, while Premier League clubs including West Ham have also been mentioned.

Now Sky Sports report Spanish side Sevilla want to take the England international on loan until the end of the campaign—though no official bid has been made yet.

Liverpool are thought to want a permanent move over a loan deal if Sturridge is to depart Anfield this month.

The striker has played only around 500 minutes this term, scoring three goals, the most recent of which came against Maribor on November 1.

It continues a downturn in fortunes for Sturridge, who had such an exciting and explosive start to his Liverpool career—but which could end in a disappointing fade-away.

The Reds could be left somewhat short in attack if he does indeed depart, following Philippe Coutinho‘s sale to Barcelona, but Sturridge wants more game time in the second half of the campaign to win himself a World Cup spot with England.

A permanent move might be best for all parties, but the Reds have yet to see any willing suitors come forward to match their demands.
