Sturridge Set To Becomes Liverpool's Key Player
With Luis Suarez on the verge of being signed by Barcelona, Daniel Sturridge is all set to become Liverpool’s key player this summer.
If the reports are to be believed, the Reds would be announcing the departure of Suarez pretty soon. It means that during the next season Brendan Rodgers’ attacking line would consist of only the English players with Sturridge being the most dynamic of them. So, it’s quite obvious that he would be used in the role of the central striker.
There is no doubt that it was Suarez who had won a lot of matches for Liverpool and had emerged as a superstar in the last season, but, Sturridge was not too far behind him either. He also had 25 goals under his belt during the season and that’s why, Rodgers is backing him to be able to lead the offensive line quite successfully.
However, it might also happen that Rodgers brings in a couple of foreign strikers or attacking midfielders with the transfer fund that he is going to get from Suarez deal.
Alexis Sanchez, the Chilean forward, who was absolutely brilliant for his national side in the World Cup in Brazil, is believed to have impressed Rodgers a lot and he might try to land him at Anfield.
However, with Gunners also interested in Sanchez, it would be hard for Rodgers to seal that particular deal.
As far as Suarez is concerned, Barcelona is understood to have offered him a salary which is lower than what he is currently getting at Liverpool, but, he has accepted it and that’s because he wants to spend the next few years of his career in Catalonia only.
If nothing dramatic happens from here, Suarez should be transferred to Barcelona next week.
