Hammers reluctant to deal with this club

daniel-sturridge-danny-liverpool-manchester-united-premier-league_3001952West Ham and Stoke are both being linked to Liverpool’s out of favour England striker Daniel Sturridge.

However, ClaretandHugh has learned there is an immediate reluctance from the club to get into protractted discussions with the merseysiders  who have a reputation for pushing clubs to the limit on transfer deals.

Sturridge is linked to the Hammers every time his position comes under the media microscope and today he is again being put in the frame for a January switch.

The 27 year old has started just four Premier League matches this season for the leaders and is yet to score a league goal.

The Mirror report that Sturridge is frustrated and now willing to leave Anfield, with Jurgen Klopp believing Firmino and Divock Origi are better team players.

However, an Irons insider told ClaretandHugh: “They are a very hard club with which to do business as they demonstrated in the Andy Carroll transfer and again over Christian Benteke. They push for the absolute maximum and are pretty unrelenting.”

  1. If their anything like the last batch on the list,save time and buy Sturridge.
    He would be a revelation at West Ham.Sometimes you have to pay a premium to get the best. COYI

  2. Problem is he has England ambitions and a move to West Ham would probably finish them .

  3. Why have two strikers on the books that only play a handful of games a season. Sturridge is a good goal scorer but he is the same as Carroll spends most of each season on the sidelines.

  4. I rate Sturridge very highly but just too injury prone.

  5. Only if he is healthy and promises not to celebrate goals with that ****y dance

  6. Injury prone or not, i’m bored of the line “we have other strikers on our list” because it’s the same as we heard all summer (and that worked out well) He’s a natural scorer if he’s going to cost 30 million pay it because you won’t find a better goalscorer and proven in the premier league. Yes he is injury prone so that makes us the ideal choice really haha! No matter what though I still don’t think the system Slav plays doesn’t help our strikers they’re very isolated. Zaza i was hoping to be good but doesn’t seem to be the case but I feel for him because if there was two up top maybe he’d be better, rather than basing our whole game around Carroll being fit.
