Daniel Sturridge offered to Arsenal on loan

It wouldn’t be deadline day without a crazy transfer story and we think we’ve found the craziest one so far this year.

Brace yourself.


Daniel Sturridge has been offered on loan to Arsenal.

That’s according to Goal, who claim that the striker’s representatives have contacted the Gunners over a possible season-long loan deal.

However, there is a big problem. The report goes on to state that Liverpool remain adamant that the forward isn’t leaving this summer and are unwilling to do business.

But the fact that Sturridge's representatives have made a move in an attempt to find the England international a new club on transfer deadline day is surely a worry for Liverpool fans.

The 26-year-old, who is a boyhood Arsenal fan, appears to be unsettled at Anfield and is failing to nail down the striker position under Jurgen Klopp.

Sturridge on his wide role

Last week, Sturridge appeared to criticise Klopp for continuing to use him as a wide player, rather than down the middle.

“Of course, it is more difficult for me to play wide. I’m a centre-forward,” Sturridge told The Guardian.

“Well, I have to do a job for the team. That’s not saying I am happy to do it. That’s saying I have got to do a job for the team. It’s a team game. If I am put in that position, I have to play there.”

If Sturridge was hoping his words would have a positive effect, he was seriously mistaken. In Liverpool’s very next match against Tottenham, Sturridge was left on the bench and only came on in the 88th minute and after Divock Origi had already entered the pitch.

While he may not be too impressed with the way Klopp uses him, it seems as though the German boss has no intention of letting Sturridge leave.

Klopp's response

In response to Sturridge’s comments, Klopp admitted that he’s aware that he wants to play up-front but insisted there is ‘absolutely no problem’ between the pair.

"I don't want to play Daniel as a wide player but he can play there,” he said.

"It wasn't a fixed position for him. There is absolutely no problem.”

Sturridge probably isn’t too happy at Liverpool at this very moment but one thing is for sure, Klopp simply won’t allow him to leave for Arsenal.
