      Daniel Sturridge (Southampton/Inter Milan/Sevilla)
      Dec 29, 2017 01:58:24 am
      Seems to be a potential sideline to the van Dijk deal.

      It's no secret that Southampton's problem has been up front this season

      Southampton are interested in recruiting Liverpool and England striker Daniel Sturridge on loan until the end of the season and are also ready to make an audacious bid for Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon.

      After selling Virgil van Dijk to Liverpool for £75 million on Wednesday, Southampton want to reinvest quickly and add quality to their squad, with the attacking positions and centre-back their two priorities.

      A list of targets are being considered or actively worked upon and, with manager Mauricio Pellegrino desperate to add pace, power and goals to his team, one of the most intriguing names is Liverpool’s Sturridge.

      His Liverpool contributions have been limited by persistent injury but, even when fully fit, the emergence this season of Jürgen Klopp’s ‘fab four’ of Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Sadio Mane has left him unlikely to start even when available.

      Southampton have their own short-term problems in attack following Charlie Austin’s injury and, although they are also looking at permanent options, they would be very interested in taking a proven goalscorer like Sturridge on loan.

      I would wave him goodbye. I’m sorry to say, I wish it was otherwise but he is a waste of space and has been for 3 years. In little spells like this when there are lots of games at once this is where we need him and just like last year and I’m sure the one before he has another silly injury that rules him out for weeks on end. I’d gladly move him on and bring Origi back

      You are 100% correct about not loaning  him especially to Southampton after the big transfer fee they have just got from us.

      It's a shame he hasn't adapted to Jurgens style of play. Sturridge likes to stay in and around the 18 yard box and if goes to another club who play this way and he stays fit I'm sure Sturridge will be banging in the goals again and that's the frustrating part of it, he's a quality forward.

      I'd loan him so he can't play against us. Best player on the pitch when he's fit.

      If he's sold, 25m will be a minimum.

      Jürgen never seems to have been convinced by Danny so I won't be surprised when he eventually leaves.

      I don't think Danny would take a permanent move to a club like Southampton but he might be tempted by a loan.

      Time for him and the club to move on, he's given us some great goals over the years but its just not quite working anymore.

      Personally I’d keep him until the summer. If we have a good run in Europe, get a good FA Cup run going too, we can’t risk being short on players. I know he’s unreliable but he might be fit to play and have a good impact on some games, for all we know, he could play just 2 more times this season, but if they are in Europe or the cup then he does have the scoring ability to be what puts us through to the next round.

      I’d let him go in the summer for sure but think we need to keep all the firepower we can, even if it’s just to kill games off and give Bobby bit of a rest.

      Ings hasn’t been part of the team for so long now, if anyone is to go be then it has to be him IMO.

      Origi's not around, so if Firmino got injured, Danny and Ings could potentially be in line.
      Could just play Salah up top either.
      But for arguments sake, if it's between Danny and Ings, I'd keep Danny.
      And tbh if it's just a loan, don't see the point of it.
      We should've sold Danny in last summer, but that chance has passed, so imho would wait until next summer to move let him go.

      Have to agree, I think Ings needs to get his PL boots on before Liverpool boots. I would offer Ings on loan to Southampton. I would probably loan Sturridge if the player himself requested it though.

      Agree with this. Always been a fan of Sturridge but truth is we cannot rely on him and he probably wants to play more regularly as well.
      I'd love to see us sign a versatile forward who could play Firmino's more central role if necessary, so we don't have to rely on Solanke in case anything happens to Bobby (knocks wood). Danzel recently suggested Lozano could be that guy, as he's adept at playing on both wings but has also been used centrally. Would be an interesting option.

      Can't see us loaning out Sturridge and Ings.

      That 100% won't happen without bringing somebody else in. Loaning those two out with no replacement leaves us with Firmino & Solanke, who hasn't scored a goal at this level.

      Solanke did score for us but the tw*t of a ref disallowed it.

      Could always recall Origi....

      Agreed. The current lack of a viable alternative to Firmino along with Sturridge's proven ability to score goals doesn't justify a loan deal.

      Even if he only scores a few goals between now and the end of the season, it could be those goals that help us on our way in the cups or to a better position in the league and that's all it would take to make it worthwhile keeping him.

      IMO that comfortably outweighs the few mill we'd get in a loan fee plus the possibility of more game time (if he's fit).

      We have spent for too long holding on to Danny Sturridge, and it as stopped Liverpool searching in earnest for a much needed replacement, and has kept us looking for mere stopgaps... Had a magic season along side Suarez, and a Good season after his departure, but has never reached those heights since... We held on to him far to long, should have sold him at least two seasons ago... Hope Liverpool and Southampton can agree a price that will see him out the door so we can get on to finding that replacement

      Plus, imagine we loan him out for the rest of the season and he picks up an injury that sidelines him into the new season? That’s at least another season with him doing nothing.

      I mean I hope that wouldn’t happen to him but I’m pretty sure we as a club at the minute are tailoring his training to avoid it, Southampton’s methods might be a lil different and we know from experience he’s made of glass...
