Leicester ready to move for Sturridge

Leicester City are are still keen to get their hands on Daniel Sturridge, whose Liverpool contract is set to expire.

Leicester City are are still keen to get their hands on Daniel Sturridge, whose Liverpool contract is set to expire.

The England international knows Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers well following their time together at Anfield, most notably during the Reds’ unsuccessful title tilt in 2013-14.

On that occasion, Sturridge netted 25 goals in all competitions but he has struggled to recapture that form under other managers.

With his contract at Anfield coming to an end, he could prove a real bargain due to his experience in the Premier League and proven goalscoring record when fit.

After losing Shinji Okazaki, Sturridge could act as a nice foil to James Maddison between the lines, while he also has the ability to play up front alongside Jamie Vardy.

Leicester are among a host of clubs targetting the Champions League winner this summer, with Aston Villa and Fenerbahce also thought to be monitoring his situation.
