Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that the futures of Daniel Sturridge and a number of other players are set to be reviewed by the end of the season.
Sturridge himself had missed Liverpool’s most recent game — a lamentable 3-1 defeat against Leicester City — through illness. However, speculations are pointing towards a high profile exit for the 27-year-old England International in the next transfer window.
“I have no idea what happens in the summer,” Klopp said. “It is not only Daniel but a lot of players.”
“Daniel was not in training for eight or nine days because of a virus infection,” he explained further on Sturridge’s absence.
“We have to bring him back to the best shape possible and then bring this season to an end as successfully as possible. Then we will make decisions and speak about Daniel and any other players about what will happen at the end of the season. A lot of things will influence this and we can speak about it when it is time.”
Joe Hart could also prove to be the subject another high profile move in the Premier League this summer, after Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said that he is “so happy” with the goalkeepers in his current squad, Willy Caballero and Claudio Bravo.
“I’m so happy with Willy and Claudio. We are going to talk about it (Joe Hart’s future) at the end of the season,” the Catalan said.
When asked if he will be signing another goalkeeper to City, Guardiola replied: “I will decide about that at the end of the season. I trust a lot in both and we’ll decide – not just the goalkeepers, the midfielders, wingers, strikers, full-backs – we are going to decide at the end of the season.”
