Could Liverpool use Daniel Sturridge to finally land Virgil van Dijk?

Phil Thompson Daniel Sturridge Liverpool

In recent days, rumours have once again picked up about Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge.

Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge will not be a part of the England squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation if he remains on the fringes of Jurgen Klopp's side at Anfield according to Reds legend Phil Thompson, who understands the forward's apparent desire to seek a move in the January transfer window.

The injury-prone striker has scored two goals in four starts and four substitute appearances in the Premier League ahead of next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Liverpool-fan Quinn had previously suggested that a player like Sturridge would be a useful signing for any side that is struggling in the bottom half of the league, naming Swansea, West Brom and West Ham as potential destinations as well.

"I can imagine a player with his quality is not happy that he is not starting all the time, but that's all", Klopp is quoted by Sky Sports as saying.

"The situation with the player is OK".

Where he might end up wasn't specified, just that he had started to believe he had to be somewhere else-that his chances of even making the England squad for the upcoming World Cup depended on leaving Liverpool. Really I can imagine that. "There are so many games before then and I need everyone".

"I don't think one of the big six would take him so it is a big decision what he does", Thompson said.

Daniel Sturridge reportedly wants to leave Liverpool to secure regular first-team football.

That means the Toffees are favourites in the market in the race for Sturridge, ahead of West Ham (7/4) who were linked with a move for the forward back in the summer.
