Liverpool to keep hold of Sturridge

Sturridge will stay at Liverpool for the season

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has decided to keep hold of striker Daniel Sturridge for the campaign despite firm interest from West Ham United.

Recent speculation suggested that the Hammers could land the England international in a proposed £25m deal in January.

However, according to The Mirror, Klopp is not keen on the player's sale in the New Year with Philippe Coutinho and Sadio Mane set to miss key games during the campaign.

Coutinho is currently sidelined for at least six weeks with an ankle injury, whilst Mane will be on international duty for the African Cup of Nations in mid-January.

The report adds that out-of-favour defender Mamadou Sakho would be the sole player to leave Anfield at the turn of the year with Klopp looking to recoup funds for a spending spree.
