The player has been linked with a summer exit

Daniel Sturridge joined Liverpool from Chelsea for an undisclosed fee thought to be in the region of £12 million, signing a long term contract in 2013. Since then he has scored 63 goals in 133 appearances for the club.

The 28 year old was pivotal for the Reds during his first season and formed an impressive partnership with Luis Suarez. He helped the team to finish 2nd in the league and was the runner-up for the Premier League golden boot.

He also helped his team to reach the Finals of the Europa league in 2016 but lost against Sevilla. He ended the season as the club’s top scorer with 13 goals.

But for the past 2 season, the England International has struggled a lot with injuries and has just scored 10 goals in 41 appearances. He began the 2016/2017 season as an understudy to Roberto Firmino and mostly used as a substitute.

The Striker managed to score only 3 goals last season before moving to West Bromich Albion on a loan deal in the January transfer window for the rest of the season. He failed to score any goals for the Baggies and his loan spell ended in relegation from the Premier League.

He has been linked with a exit since the end of the season but he returned to Premier League giants duty at the beginning of July for pre-season and has featured in each of the three friendlies so far, scoring twice at Chester FC.

Sturridge is pleased to return to Liverpool and vows to fight for his place in the Starting XI.

“I see myself staying at Liverpool, hopefully being part of the team week in, week out,” He told the Liverpool Website.

“Pre-season is going well, so for me it’s keeping my head down and building on that. I’m excited about the season ahead and it feels great to be back.

“I am feeling great and can’t wait to get the season under way. We have the tour to come where we face some great teams like Manchester United, Manchester City and [Borussia] Dortmund.”
