Liverpool are open to letting Daniel Sturridge leave the club this month, but they would want £30million for him, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The 28-year old striker has informed the Reds’ that he wants to leave during the current window in order to play regular football and be in contention for a place in England’s World Cup squad this summer.

Jurgen Klopp would prefer he stay meanwhile, but will grant him his wish if the club receive an offer they deem acceptable.

That acceptable offer is believed to be in the region of £30million, while the Reds’ also won’t consider any loan offers. This could change however, but as it stands the club are looking for a permanent deal only.

Sturridge hasn’t played for the club since early December when Liverpool beat Spartak Moscow in the Champions League, with the former Chelsea and Manchester City man returning to training this week.

Sturridge has scored 63 goals in 133 appearances for the club since he signed five years ago. As well as finding it difficult to compete with Roberto Firmino, Dominic Solanke and Danny Ings, Sturridge feels he must leave to reignite his career.

Southampton and West Ham are two of the clubs reported to be interested in securing his services.
