No Sturridge demands to Reds

Daniel Sturridge’s representatives have denied the Chelsea

striker issued a string of demands to prospective new employers

Liverpool.

The England international is believed to be a January target for

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers after he failed to lure the 23-year-old

from Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Sturridge reportedly asked for an ?80,000-a-week salary as well

as assurances that he would be played as a striker, having spent

much of his career so far for club and country employed in a wide

role.

But his representatives, Octagon, released a statement which

read: “Daniel Sturridge does not conduct his business in

public.

“He also does not make demands in any negotiation, with regards

to salary or his playing position.

“Any contract between a club and a player has to be based on

mutual agreement.”

Sturridge has not played since the 2-1 defeat to West Brom last

month due to a hamstring problem.
