Published 14 Comments

Arsene Wenger will attempt to capitalise on Daniel Sturridge’s unsettled situation at Anfield by making a £30 million bid for the Liverpool striker.

That is according to the Mirror, who claim that the Arsenal boss has finally realised the need to sign a top-class striker.

And the rumour has Arsenal fans pretty ecstatic. On his day, Sturridge is among the best forwards in the Premier League.

The 26-year-old started and scored in Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Villarreal on Thursday but there have been signs recently that all is not well in his relationship with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

The German left Sturridge on the bench for both legs of the Europa League quarter-final against Borussia Dortmund and was forced to apologise when he headed straight for the tunnel upon full-time of Liverpool’s 3-1 loss to Swansea City last week.

Adding to the intrigue surrounding Sturridge’s future is his recent admission that he couldn’t commit to the Reds. “I would never say I am Liverpool until I die, because I would by lying,” he said in an interview with the Mirror.

Fans react

Still, prising him away from Anfield could be difficult for Wenger. After Thursday’s win, Klopp called the England international “an unbelievable player”.

“I know about his quality,” Klopp continued. “I knew before I came here. Now I know it better. He's a good player and it is good to have him here."

That doesn’t sound like a manager eager to sell.

Arsenal need a forward

Whether it’s Sturridge or not, Arsenal fans are expecting Wenger to sign a striker in the summer.

He can’t persist with Olivier Giroud, scorer of two goals in his last 21 appearances, as his number one striker for another season.
