'The End': Ex-Red claims 'phenomenal' £30m 'Liverpool' star will probably quit Anfield this summer

Will Daniel Sturridge still be a Liverpool player next season? Ex-Red Phil Babb doesn't think so, and he's tipped the beleaguered striker to move on this summer.

When asked on Friday about Sturridge's future, Babb - who made 170 appearances for Liverpool between ring a 5-year spell at Anfield - told Sky Sports:

"Sturridge is a phenomenal talent, but is injured season after season, and hasn’t played enough games. I think he’s coming to the end of his tenure at Liverpool, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he left Liverpool in the summer".

Injuries have basically killed Sturridge's Liverpool career, and although I'm a massive fan of the striker (and advocate playing him once a week when fully fit), it's clear that his time at Anfield is up.

In fact, Sturridge may have already played his last game for the club. With his current injury (he's now spent close to eight weeks on the sidelines), and only two months left of the season, it's doubtful that Sturridge will have the time to build up the requisite match-fitness to make it back into the team.

If Sturridge was on the comeback trail, he'd be in Tenerife right now with the rest of the squad, but the fact he stayed behind obviously means that he's not even fit enough to take part in light warm weather training.

Last week, Sky Sports claimed:

"West Ham are planning to sell Andy Carroll in the summer and replace him with Daniel Sturridge".

If West Ham want to throw money at Liverpool to relieve the club of it most injured player, then bring it on. It'll be a shame to see Sturridge go, but it's time for him to become some other physio's problem.
