Fans of West Ham United have aired that they do not want to see the Hammers sign former Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge.
On Wednesday, football.london wrote an article stating that the out-of-contract forward could be ‘the answer to West Ham’s attacking problems’, which supporters wholeheartedly disagreed with (via West Ham News).
I can quite comfortably say he isn’t https://t.co/jaB2HjqftR

Would you be happy if West Ham signed Daniel Sturridge and he was injury free?
No, still not good enough
Yes, got proven pedigree
The 30-year-old striker was recently released by Trabzonspor and is currently without a club (per Transfermarkt), for the Turkish side, the Englishman bagged a respectable seven goals and four assists in 16 appearances (per Transfermarkt).
Despite the former Liverpool and Chelsea man having netted 77 goals and provided 29 assists in 218 Premier League games during his career (per Transfermarkt), West Ham supporters were having none of it.
Like we need yet another sick note.

If Daniel Sturridge is the answer, we’re in a worse state than I ever thought possible.

Why would someone even think he is what we need at west ham

What do we think?
The main point which seemed to be raised by the London Stadium faithful is Sturridge’s injury record, with the striker having suffered eight injuries since September of last year (per Transfermarkt).
The striker is also currently banned until June for breaking betting rules (per The Guardian), which could be another solid reason for David Moyes’ outfit to stay well clear.
