Daniel Sturridge’s Anfield career could to come to an unwanted end this January, and the Arsenal fans in the Tavern are keeping tabs on him.
Arsenal supporters have been desperate for a renowned world-class striker to be signed by Wenger, as they hope to end a 13 year wait for a Premier League title.
Sturridge himself would no doubt be keen to swap Liverpool’s bench for the Arsenal starting XI and the return of Champions League football. His fallout with Jurgen Klopp is well documented in the Tavern, and he will be keen to find a manager to provide him with the needed arm around his shoulder.
Here are three reasons why Arsenal and Daniel Sturridge are a match made in heaven…
PERFECT FOR EACHOTHER
Not since the loss of Robin Van Persie have Arsenal found a 20 goal a season striker. Players have come and gone such as Lukas Podolski and even the present Olivier Giroud, but none of them have replaced the Dutch striker’s goals.
Sturridge, on the other hand, is desperate for regular first-team football and his ability ensures he is capable of playing at the summit of the Premier League.
Our locals will raise a glass or two to this prospect of Sturridge joining the Gunners.
BETTER THAN A BENCH-WARMER
The form of Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané has forced Sturridge to find a regular spot on Jurgen Klopp’s bench. The duo have found their place mixing positions amongst the front-three, which brilliantly destroyed Arsenal at the Emirates in August.
Sturridge is a renowned goalscorer and boasts the third best minute’s to goals ratio in Premier League history.
Nonetheless, his style of play does not compliment what Jurgen Klopp desires – much to our Liverpool regulars disapproval.
Squad sizes and strength-in-depth have proven a decisive factor in every team’s domestic success throughout the years. At Liverpool, Sturridge can certainly lay claim to being the most senior striker in the squad.
His goals in seasons gone by have been pivotal to the club’s success most famously during the 2013/2014 season.
Arsenal already bolster a host of outstanding options going forward and signing Sturridge would only increase their chances of another Premier League title, and diminish Liverpool’s in the meantime.
