    Liverpool are prepared to sell Daniel Sturridge this month - but they want £30million for the striker.
    The 28-year-old frontman has informed the Reds that he wants to leave during the current window in order to secure the regular action required to force his way into England’s World Cup squad.
    Jurgen Klopp remains keen for Sturridge to stay for the rest of the season but will grant him his wish if Liverpool receive an offer which they believe matches his value.
    As it stands Sturridge isn’t available for loan with the Reds only considering a permanent move. That position could change later in the window if the asking price isn’t met and there’s a hefty loan fee on the table.

    Southampton and West Ham have both been linked with the former Chelsea forward, who has found himself down the pecking order at Anfield this season.
    Sturridge, who returned to full training at Melwood this week after a hamstring injury, hasn’t featured since the victory over Spartak Moscow on December 6.
    He has only made five starts in all competitions this term with Klopp favouring Roberto Firmino in the central attacking role.

    There is a lot of desperation low down in the premier league.

    Southampton have recently received a large windfall. Do they need a striker?

    We haven't bought anyone off Southampton for over a week. Maybe we could swap him for someone.

    I'd fucking love it if we got rid of that useless lump, but who in their right mind is going to pay 30M for him?

    He will score goals for the mid table teams West Ham / Southampton. Sad fall for the guy. When he got injured after scoring from an outrageous chip, earlier this season, I thought he time was up

    His valuation at most will be 17-18M given his injury record and also the fact that most other clubs will have realized by now that he was just a one season wonder.

    If we get 30m I'll be amazed. We might actually sign someone that way, though

    I'd be alright with £15m and he was off the wage bill

    The original report comes from Pearce in the Echo, which will have been fed to him by the club.

    Even with the market the way that it is, if I bought Sturridge I'd want change from a fiver.

    The PE owners of my business talk regularly about the 'one bigger fool' rule. Essentially meaning however badly you overvalue a business, or however utterly shite the asset actually is, all you really need is one bigger fool to think it's worth it, to stump up the cash and you're golden.

    Applies very well in the case of Sturridge. If we can find some fucking imbecile prepared to pay money for him, it'll be every bit as good a transfer as getting 140M for Coutinho.

    And never forget folks, it would have been less than a year ago that we had to regularly read Brendan bang on about his astonishment that this useless cunt wasn't getting games ahead of Firmino.

    And there it is. Obviously injuries fucked sturridge, but playing next to a god raised his skill ceiling immensely when he was at the height of his power. Let's hope we don't see further examples of players who we learn simply looked better than they are because of those around them, during the rest of this season.

    The Igor Biscan rule.

    We stood that hapless ballbag next to Gerrard, Hammann, and Alonso. He couldn't fail!

    Although I have absolutely no problem with him being sold - I think to suggest he would have been a failure without Suarez is a bit too far. Remember at the start of THAT season whie Suarez was serving his ban - Studge was actually scoring some very good goals worthy of a world class striker. The issue is that the injuries and his inability to reproduce that seasons form has meant that he is no longer an effective part of our team. Part of me actually thinks he could be an effective creator type behind a main striker but he is too injury prone for such a role. In comparison to Firminio - Studge is made of glass, and Firminio is made of steel - rarely gets injured despite the effort he puts in. It's too much for this club to a player on 150K a week that hardly plays.
