TalkSPORT presenter and former professional footballer Micky Quinn has claimed that he has just been tipped off that West Ham are trying to complete a sensational swoop for Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge on transfer deadline day.
Quinn said on twitter just before 11am:
“Just heard West ham want Sturridge today” adding “The deal (is) all down to Liverpool (and) whether they want to let him go now or end of season”
Quinn was born and brought up in Liverpool and is a massive Reds fan. David Sullivan and his son Jack have played down expectations of a signing today but did leave the door slightly ajar for an exceptional signing.
We will attempt to get to the bottom of this rumour by talking to regular ClaretandHugh sources within the club.
