Two Liverpool stars Daniel Sturridge and Lucas Leiva are close to change a workplace in the summer, according to latest reports
The England international hasn’t featured much when healthy this season, and as always, injuries have played a part as well.

Despite the many setbacks, ex-Chelsea man retains a ton of value. As shared by WhoScored.com, he remains an effective forward when he is able to play:

The clubs desperate for his production will pay the Anfield club a decent fee for his services, knowing full well he’s all but assured to miss a significant amount of time.
Jurgen Klopp’s side will likely add to their attacking depth in the summer whether they sell the 27-year-old hitman or not, and his fee could aid toward bringing in a top player.
Meanwhile, the Turkish news outlet Sabah claims that Lucas Leiva has agreed a £2.2 million deal with Galatasaray and will arrive at the club ahead of next season.
With Ragnar Klavan, Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren all ahead of the 30-year-old midfielder-come-defender in the pecking order at the back, midfield opportunities lacking and his legs giving up on him more and more by the game, it only makes sense for Lucas to move on while he still has offers of a decent standard and if he does go in the summer.
