Shock Transfer: Carra urges 'phenomenal' £30m star to quit Liverpool and sign for 'Spurs'

Will Daniel Sturridge still be a Liverpool player next season? Reds legend Jamie Carragher doesn't think so, and he's urged the injury prone striker to move on this summer.

Speaking to Newsweek on Wednesday, Carra claimed that Sturridge has never been a 'Jurgen Klopp-type' player, and advised the £30m-rated to consider a move to one of Liverpool's Premier League rivals:

"I'll be surprised if he [Sturridge] is there next season. It might be better for everyone if he moves on. He certainly has the quality to play for Tottenham, there’s no doubt about that".

Sturridge's exit has been inevitable since Brendan Rodgers left. As Carra notes, he's not a Klopp-type player, and even if he was 100% fit all the time, and scored two goals every game, he'd probably still be a squad player under Klopp.

I'm a massive fan of Sturridge, but I doubt he'll start many games before the end of the season, and like Sakho, it's clear that his time at Anfield is up. 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 relieve the club of it most injured player, then bring it on. It'll be a shame to see 'phenomenal' Sturridge go, but it makes financial sense to cash-in now.

As for Spurs - I doubt Mauricio Pochettino is interested. Like Klopp, he plays a pressing game, and demands constant intensity from his players. That said, Sturridge is reportedly interested in a move to White Hart Lane, though it seems unlikely that Liverpool will sell a top player to a direct rival.
