Former Liverpool and Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge is set to make a decision about his future by the end of this week.
The 29-year old is a free agent having been released from the Anfield side at the end of last season, and has a host of options from which to choose, including a contract worth £9 million from Turkish side Fenerbahçe.
He has also had offers from Marseille, Real Betis, DC United, and also from clubs in Qatar.
Sturridge is clear to resume his game after serving a temporary ban for breaching the FA’s rules on illegal betting on football. The FA though are contesting the lifting of that restriction though as they sought a longer original suspension than was originally handed down to the former England striker.
The forward joined Liverpool from Chelsea in January 2013, and went on to manage 67 goals in 160 appearances for the Reds, although his time on Merseyside was blighted by a series of injuries.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
