Liverpool Demand £15m For Forward, Turkish Giants Prepared To Pay £8.9m

Liverpool may have found a buyer for Daniel Sturridge but will have reduce their fee.

Besiktas are prepared to pay up to £8.9m [€10m] although they would prefer to strike a deal in the region of £6.2m [€7m] according to A Spor.

Per the source, the Black Eagles are prepared to hold official talks if the Reds accept their proposal.

The Super Lig outfit where keen on a loan move but Liverpool want a permanent deal.

The fee is considerably less than the £15m valuation Liverpool have placed on Sturridge but as things stand there have been no clubs willing to match the asking price.

Besiktas are confident they would be able to complete the move should Liverpool agree to their proposed offer.

The Echo report that Sturridge has just a ‘few weeks’ to convince Jurgen Klopp to keep him at Anfield next season.

Per the source, the England striker will return to Melwood hoping to prove himself but the only reason he is still at the club is because they have been unable to find a buyer.

The striker has fallen down the pecking order in the squad and scored just three goals in all competitions last season, spending the last six-months on loan at West Brom.
