Star Liverpool player want to move away from Anfield; Arsenal reportedly his favored destination

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has made some stellar signings this summer to help his squad compete with the best in the league this season.

He has bought in a number of players all around the field to add strength and depth to his squad going into the new season.

But the number of signings that he has made has left a couple of players within the squad with no place in the starting XI.

Mamadou Sakho, one of the fan favorites at the club is reportedly ready to be sent out on loan and is now being followed by another star player according to recent reports.

It is now understood that star striker Daniel Sturridge is unsettled at the club and wants to move away this summer and London rivals Arsenal are reportedly interested in his signature.

The England international was visibly distraught at White Hart Lane when Divock Origi was given a chance from the bench ahead of him in the second half of the game.

Sturridge was only given 3 normal minutes + stoppage time during that game and his expressions on the sideline when Origi was subbed told a huge story.

The likes of Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi are above him in the pecking order for Klopp at the moment and it seems like it has been a bit hard to take for the prolific goal scorer who is now unhappy playing for Liverpool for another season.

Though Klopp has his own plans and has repeatedly spoken about no real feud with Sturridge, recent comments from the striker that he was not being played in his position show that there is a rift between him and the club at the moment and Arsenal are reportedly ready to cash in.

However, there are a few problems for this deal to happen before the deadline day.

First would be the fact that Liverpool will be hesitant to sell a star player without enough time for replacements. They will also have to think twice before selling to a direct rival in Arsenal.

But the biggest problem seems to be the valuation of the 26-year old. The inflation this summer along with the amount of time left in the transfer window will see Sturridge, whose market value is around the £20m mark cost Arsenal almost double of it.

With more than £50m spent in the last couple of days, it will be interesting to see if Wenger is ready to splash the cash but if he does not, Sturridge will be an unhappy player at Liverpool until he gets regular game time under his belt.

Do you think Wenger will move for Sturridge this summer?
