According to reports from Mirror Football, Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge wants to return to London at the end of the season.
The 26-year-old has netted an impressive 44 times in 72 appearances for the Reds but managed just 17 Premier League outings since the start of last season amid 18 months of injury hell.
Reports last week revealed that the England international will push for an Anfield exit at the end of the season, feeling in need of a fresh start and having grown tired of accusations that he’s not committed enough to return to the pitch.
That has seen Sturridge linked with a host of rival Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, Manchester United and Newcastle United. But Mirror Football claim the former Chelsea star wants to return to London next season, putting clubs from the English capital on alert.
That further validates rumours of Arsenal’s interest in the 6 foot 2 frontman, but the British tabloid also speculate a move to West Ham. The Hammers will want a marquee signing next summer to mark their move to the Olympic Stadium and Sturridge could fit the bill.
Intriguingly, they were also linked with the crocked striker by the Brentwood Gazette in January – albeit somewhat unconvincingly.
