Decision Made: Klopp responds to LFC 'rumours' about 'exceptional' £28m attacker; confirms 'transfer' is a no-go

What are the chances of Daniel Sturridge leaving Anfield in January?

Last week, multiple reports claimed that Klopp is willing to sell Sturridge:

"A number of clubs have been made aware that Sturridge is not wanted by the Reds' boss Jurgen Klopp. West Ham and Stoke are among the clubs interested".

The Daily Express further claimed that Sturridge wants out:

"Sturridge earns £120,000 a week on Merseyside, and the Reds want £28m for the wantaway forward".

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp refutes these reports, though, and when asked today about the possibility of selling Sturridge in January, Liverpool's boss told reporters:

"There is absolutely no thought to sell any player. Unfortunately, Daniel is not in training now and that is what I am more concerned about than any transfer rumours".

Even if Klopp is considering allowing 'exceptional' Sturridge to leave, he won't admit it in public, so this is a pretty standard response.

Liverpool lack strength in depth up-front, but if a club comes in with a silly offer during the upcoming transfer window, I have absolutely no doubt that Klopp will consider it.
