Liverpool eye Chelsea’s Sturridge for Carroll

Nurin Sahin is in the bag, but Brendan Rodgers is far from done.

Not deterred by Liverpool’s stuttering start, Rodgers is reported to be now considering a move for Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge.

The move for Sturridge comes on the back of reports that the Andy Carroll saga will end and the pony-tailed hitman could leave over the next  few days.

Newcastle and West Ham remain in pole position to sign Carroll.

Sturridge could be tempted to go to Anfield after his chances of first-team action are increasingly limited at Stamford Bridge with the return to form of Fernando Torres.

Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson are also up for grabs with the coming of Sahin, The Real Madrid midfielder, 23, is set to complete a season-long loan to Anfield after things with Arsenal not working out.

Rodgers said: “Nuri is a great technician. He was player of the year in Germany and captain of Dortmund at a young age. My hope is his quality will help improve the group.”

Liverpool also have Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez to thank for Luis Suarez coming to the Kop.

In an interview with the British press Suarez says he followed partly because of the success of his fellow South American forward Tevez.

“I watched Tevez when I was playing in Holland and I could see he was doing really well. That’s was one of the things that really motivated me to come and play in the Premier League,” Suarez said.
