£15m Liverpool target wants permanent Chelsea exit

Liverpool striker target Daniel Sturridge is holding out for a permanent transfer away from Chelsea, according to reports.

The Sunday People claims the England international striker does not want to leave Stamford Bridge in a short-term capacity, and is hoping to settle at a new club playing regular football.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers missed out on the player in the closing stages of the summer transfer window, the report claims, with the Northern Irishman failing to secure Sturridge’s services on loan.

But, with the forward featuring just three times in the Premier League for the Blues so far this season, Liverpool are ready to ‘resurrect their interest’ in the player when the transfer window re-opens in January.

Rodgers is unlikely to have everything his own way however, with the Daily Mail reporting last weekend that the Reds would need to spend in the region of £15 million to bring the player to Anfield. Roberto Di Matteo hoping to use the cash to fund a Chelsea move for Radamel Falcao.

If the Liverpool chief believes that figure is too much to prize the player away from Stamford Bridge, then there are other targets on his radar, with Newcastle duo Demba Ba and Papiss Demba Cisse both linked in recent days.

For Chelsea, their sights appear to be firmly set on Falcao, although Wariss Majeed and Klaas Jan-Huntelaar have also been linked.
