Young Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge is hoping to link up with Fernando Torres to revive Liverpool’s on-field fortunes witha loan move, according to the People.
The former Manchester City youth graduate has been linked with a move for a few weeks now, as the January transfer window gets nearer, having fallen down the pecking order at the Barclays Premier League champions.
Liverpool have struggled so far this season and are actively looking for around five players to improve their squad next month.
New owners NESV have insisted they are willing to bring one big money player to Anfield but Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson will have to be wise with the other players he brings in.
Therefore loan deals could be key to Liverpool’s January and Sturridge, who wants to gain top flight experience, would complement Torres perfectly.
Sturridge left Manchester City two seasons ago on a free transfer after failing to agree terms on a new deal with the Eastlands outfit and signed a megabucks deal at Stamford Bridge shortly afterwards.
So far this season, Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has used him as an impact sub and he has made 10 league appearances this season but failed to score as of yet.
If he does get his wish and move on loan to Liverpool, he and Chelsea will both hope he can get some starts alongside Torres and fire Liverpool into a respectable position come the end of the season.
