Paris-Saint Germain tried to take Daniel Sturridge on loan in January to complement Edinson Cavani but Liverpool rejected the move.

A hugely frustrating theme this season has been the failure of Daniel Sturridge to make any impact of note. The Englishman has been on the bench more often than not and has lacked pace and aggression when he has played.

Most fans crave the return of the Daniel Sturridge who scored 21 Premier League goals in the 2013/14 season. His goalscoring contributions helped aid a title challenge, spearheaded by the enigmatic Luis Suarez.

A belief very prominent among supporters is that Sturridge only performed to such heights due to the presence of Suarez. His underperformance since the Uruguayan’s departure has bolstered this argument. His poor form and lack of game time is in stark contrast to that of Tottenham’s Harry Kane. The Spurs striker has led Spurs for the last three years, scoring twenty goals or more in each of his last three seasons.

Liverpool reject Paris-Saint Germain loan bid for Daniel Sturridge

According to Goal, PSG made a loan bid for Sturridge in January which was duly rejected by Liverpool. This, in spite of the Englishman’s diminished influence and lack of game time.

 

“The England striker was a premier target for the defending Ligue 1 champions, who were confident he’d complement Edison Cavani superbly in attack,” the website claims.

Of course, Sturridge would’ve likely received a lucrative package from the Ligue 1 club but the move was turned down.

Liverpool desperately need a forward to carry them through the tough times that the Merseyside club are currently experiencing. According to French Football expert Julien Laurens, Alexandre Lacazette could join Liverpool in the summer.

The Frenchman is exactly what Liverpool need with his pace, power and natural goalscoring ability what Liverpool are missing. Signing the Lyon forward would require a bid well north of £40 million but needs to be completed to take Liverpool to the next level.
