Former Arsenal player Ray Parlour has claimed that Liverpool should sell injury-prone striker Daniel Sturridge and replace him with someone who can perform regularly.
Sturridge’s promising career has been marred by injury, and the 27-year-old is believed to have fallen out of Jurgen Klopp’s favour due to his inconsistent fitness levels.
”I can’t see him having a future at Liverpool,” Parlour told talkSPORT (via Express)
“That’s the position that they really need to look at Liverpool in this transfer window, centre-forward.
“Get that real focal player who can hold the ball up, you’ve got excellent little players behind them, we know that. You have (Philippe) Coutinho, (Adam) Lallana, (Roberto) Firmino, excellent players, (Sadio) Mane as well, he’s been out injured.
“I think forward is going to be the most important and I think Jurgen Klopp is going to need someone who will be reliable, play week in, week out.
Parlour goes on to say that Liverpool would benefit from having a player like Harry Kane, who doesn’t seem to get injured too often.
“A little bit like Harry Kane, I know he missed a few spells but that was just bad luck for Harry.
“Someone who’s not going to get those niggly injuries and I think Daniel Sturridge will be on the move. A lot of clubs will be interested in him. West Ham for Daniel Sturridge?”
Sturridge has been linked with a summer move away from Anfield, with Slaven Bilic’s West Ham the most reported team to have an interest in him.
