Liverpool Star Urged To Leave Liverpool, Euro Giants Enter Talks
Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has been closely linked with a January exit.
Sky Sports pundit Tony Gale feels the England international should leave to join a club on loan.
Gale underlined that Sturridge has to start playing regularly again and with his current position in the Liverpool pecking order that could prove difficult.

“It seems like another player who is content to be sitting there, but if he gets the opportunity for a loan move, I would get out there and get playing football; prove your fitness between now and the end of the season,” Gale said speaking on Sky Sports.
“Then you never know with your England chances.
“Without doubt, he is still a quality finisher. I think Jurgen’s Klopp’s style since he came in hasn’t quite suited him in terms of when you lose the ball, you have to be the first line of defence and get after the ball. But he has that rare commodity that he can score a goal.
The injury situation with Daniel [has always prevented him cementing a regular starting berth]. He needs to play a whole season. When he was playing at Liverpool with Suarez, they were unstoppable.
“If he can keep his fitness [he can recapture that form], but how is he going to get in this Liverpool team and play week-in, week-out and have that fitness that you need to have to be super sharp in front of goal and have that quality to bring other players into play. I am not sure he is going to get that at Liverpool with the players they have got there.”
Sky in Italy report that Inter Milan are interested in signing Sturridge during the January transfer window.
The Serie A leaders are targeting players who need to play regularly ahead of the World Cup.
Besiktas and Fenerbahce are also interested in the England international.
Sturridge is open to playing in the Super Lig according to Turkish agent Hasan Anıl Eken who represents Sturridge’s rights in Turkey – through Octagon, Sturridge’s management company.
Eken was quoted by Fanatik as saying: “If the circumstances are right and the fans want him Sturridge would play in Turkey.”
Fanatik also claim that Fenerbahce have entered talks with Sturridge’s representatives.
Per the source, the Yellow Canaries want the 29-year-old on loan until the end of the season with a buyout clause option.
