Liverpool urged to complete sale of this 29-year-old by BBC pundit

Former Premier League forward and current BBC pundit Warren Aspinall has urged Liverpool to make a January sale of experienced striker Daniel Sturridge.

Sturridge has seen fairly minimal action this season, having only appeared in 18 games so far, with four goals and an assist to his name.

The English striker is only seen as a back-up option for Jurgen Klopp just in case any of his first-choice trio of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, and Robert Firmino suffers an injury.

Therefore, ex-Everton and Brighton man Aspinall is calling for the Reds to get rid of Sturridge in order to improve the club’s financial burden and trim down the squad.

“Sturridge – if I was the chairman I’d get him off the wage bill,”¬†Aspinall said

“I think sometimes his body language is a disgrace, sometimes he’s lazy, and not really a Liverpool player since this manager’s taken over.”

Sturridge is yet to sign a new contract at Anfield and at this point, the former Chelsea and Manchester City star is expected to leave in the summer.

Liverpool may well make a profit on the striker in the January transfer window if he is sold before the end of the month.
