Daniel Sturridge expecting to stay at Liverpool and excited for season ahead

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp gestures Action Images

Daniel Sturridge says he expects to stay at Liverpool this summer, despite being strongly linked with a move away.

After six matches, no goals and another injury, however, Sturridge's progression halted again as the Baggies were relegated from the Premier League.

He has since returned for pre-season training amid speculation over his future, and has produced a series of bright displays in a new role behind the centre-forward.

"If they get him, as well as the other signings like Fekir, then I think they can challenge".

The Independent quotes Sturridge as having told the Daily Mirror that he hopes to remain at the club beyond the summer.

I see myself staying at Liverpool, hopefully being part of the team week in, week out.

'Pre-season is going well, so for me it's keeping my head down and building on that.

Klopp is looking to revamp his Liverpool FC squad this summer as he looks to build a team capable of winning the title next season.

The fee will nearly double what City shelled out for Ederson a year ago, with Liverpool set to have the most expensive goalkeeper and most expensive centre-back (Virgil van Dijk) in history in their squad next season, giving Klopp no excuses not to win trophies.

Klopp's former club Borussia Dortmund take on Liverpool in Charlotte on July 22, while the Reds also face familiar foes Manchester City (July 26) and Manchester United (July 28) a fortnight before their Premier League campaign starts against West Ham, live on Sky Sports Premier League on August 12.

Though this could differ from the manager's private stance, Sturridge's performances this pre-season may prove his worth to Klopp.
