Daniel Sturrdige is set to see his fantastic form rewarded with a bumper new contract that will double his wages.

The England man currently earns a reported £70,000-a-week and The Mirror report he could be offered a new deal that will see him pick up an incredible £140,000-a-week.

Sturridge has been a key part of a rejuvenated Liverpool side looking to end their 24-year wait for a league title.

The Reds are five points adrift of first-placed Chelsea and their fantastic season has been built around the partnership of Luis Suarez and Sturridge.

The duo have a combined 47 league goals this season, with the latest four coming in yesterday's 6-3 win against Cardiff as Suarez bagged a hat-trick.

They've been labelled the SAS by pundits and the Liverpool hierarchy will now look to reward Sturridge by making him one of the club's top earners - and bring his wages more in line with his firing partner.

While the new deal would still be £60,000 short of Suarez's reported £200,000-a-week earnings, it is thought it would be enough to keep Sturridge from being distracted by lucrative offers from abroad.

The former Chelsea man has scored an impressive 29 goals in 36 league appearances his January 2013 switch and an impressive World Cup campaign with England would surely spark interest from Europe's elite.

Sturridge isn't alone in being rewarded for a fantastic season, Liverpool teammate and fellow England man, Jordan Henderson could also be offered pay rise as he finally shows the form that earned him a £16million move to Anfield.
