Gunners keep tabs on Chelsea ace
Daniel Sturridge says he cannot say for certain whether he will start next season with Chelsea, news which is sure to interest Arsenal.
Sturridge managed to force his way into the Blues' first-team this season and managed to chip in with an impressive 13 goals, despite often being played out of position on the wing. The former Manchester City man is known to be frustrated with playing out on the flanks, particularly when Fernando Torres was struggling for goals earlier in the campaign. Early indications suggest Chelsea will operate with the Spaniard as a lone striker next season and that could result in Sturridge targeting a move away, with Arsenal known to be keen. The Gunners are already thought to have made tentative enquiries but any move could hinge on the future of Robin van Persie, who has yet to pen a new deal. "You never know what is going to happen in the future," Sturridge revealed. "Everyone is going to evaluate the season that they've had, the club will certainly evaluate players and I will certainly evaluate my situation. "Obviously I see myself as a centre-forward and hopefully next season I will be able to achieve that feat because I don't see myself playing on the wing."
