Italian news outlet CalcioMercato.com came up with a rather bizarre piece of rumor on Thursday regarding a possible West Ham move for Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge in the January transfer window.
While Sturridge has lost his first-choice striker status at Liverpool this season with Jurgen Klopp preferring to use Roberto Firmino as the lone striker in majority of the games, it’s quite hard to envision the England international joining West Ham all while when the Klopp revolution is well underway.
While the Englishman’s troubles with injuries are well documented and problematic, when fit the striker is one of the best in the division and Liverpool would be doing a lot of good trying to keep him
Fans quickly took to social media with many laughing off the possibility of Sturridge joining the Hammers.
Check the reaction from the Liverpool fans below!
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH do West Ham think they can get Sturridge? I cant stop crying. Most deluded club in world football, like literally.
