Tottenham are ‘particularly keen’ to sign Daniel Sturridge from Liverpool this summer.
Sturridge has been pushed to the fringes of the Liverpool squad over the past couple of seasons, even reportedly considering a move to MLS last month.
The striker opened up on his future mere weeks later, insisting he was concentrating only on this season.
But the Daily Mirror report that Tottenham are hoping to take advantage of how far his stock has fallen at Anfield.
Sturridge has played 20 games in all competitions, but only six of those appearances have been starts.
With his contract expiring in the summer, a number of clubs have been linked. But Tottenham ‘are particularly keen’ to bring in proven back-up for Harry Kane.
Fernando Llorente is likely to depart north London at the end of the season, leaving a space in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad for a replacement striker.
Sturridge ‘could be tempted to stay in the Premier League’ and continue in his quest to play for each of the Big Six.
