The Liverpool striker will almost certainly be looking for a new club during the current transfer window after being loaned out to West Brom for the second-half of the Premier League campaign – and his chances of persuading Jurgen Klopp that he still possesses what it takes to be an elite striker at Anfield now look more than remote.
And fans of Turkish giants Besiktas want the England international to jump-start his career with them.
According to the Liverpool Echo, the 28-year-old forward has already spoken to Besiktas president Ahmet Nur Cebi – and those reports have led to the influx of Besiktas fans swarming to Sturridge’s Instagram account, imploring him to take the plunge and join them:
It remains to be seen whether or not Sturridge does indeed sign for Besiktas this summer but, whatever happens, it seems unlikely that he’ll be staying at Liverpool.
What do you think he’ll end up?
