It seems like the race to sign 21 year-old England U21 striker, Daniel Sturridge, is heating up,
Daniel Sturridge – 4 PL clubs interested
Last Friday, the news was that Stoke City were the first club to officially bid for the player and slapped in a first bid of £6M.
And news today in The Sun, that West Brom have also entered the race to sign the impressive striker, who had an excellent loan spell at Bolton this year, when he scored 8 goals in just 12 appearances for the Trotters in the Premier League.
The two other clubs said to be interested are Bolton and Newcastle, and if no other clubs come in for the player Newcastle could even be the favorites to sign him.
But we have no definite proof of Newcastle’s interest, we are just hooping the Tyneside club will go after this young and exciting player.
We’re not sure what Chelsea will want for their Birmingham-born 6′ 2″ striker, but we think a figure closer to £10M is more realistic.
And it’s not clear what plans the new boss Andre Villas-Boas could have for the youngster, and he could even be loaned out again, and if that’s the case Bolton could be the favorites.
The news from the local Newcastle press corps is that Newcastle are not going to bring any loan players in for next season.
Things could well be heating up with Sturridge, especially if Chelsea are willing to sell him.
