Sturridge told to consider shock switch from Liverpool to Everton

Liverpool ace Daniel Sturridge has been told to weigh up a shock move to Merseyside rivals Everton, by ex-Reds goal-getter Stan Collymore.

Out-of-favour Anfield ace Sturridge must be itching to get more first team action but as of yet boss Jurgen Klopp hasn’t used him to his full potential so far this campaign.

And the Reds aren’t exactly struggling without him as they sit top of the Premier League.

Now Collymore says he believes it doesn’t stretch credulity for the England star to make a switch across Stanley Park.

He said: “Daniel Sturridge will, I hope, get one more opportunity to prove himself at Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp”.

“But if the end of the season arrives and he still hasn’t been given his chance then, kid, it’ll be time to get yourself somewhere else”.

“If he does have to move on in the summer then I hope he will join a club who won’t have the luxury of not picking him as their first-choice striker…a Southampton, a West Ham, even an Everton”.

Meanwhile, Philippe Coutinho has been crowned Player of the Year at the MBNA Northwest Football Awards at Lancashire County Cricket Club.

The Brazil ace was recognised for his displays during the 2015/16 campaign when his 12 goals helped Liverpool reach the final of both the League Cup and the Europa League.

Coutinho said: “It’s a real honour to win this award. The 2015/16 season was a fantastic one for me and for the team and I hope that I am able to continue to deliver performances and goals of this quality during this year’s Premier League campaign”.
