Daniel Sturridge has been a West Ham target for quite a while now.

And the England international’s future at Liverpool looks bleak with the likes of Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino preferred up front.

As a result, many news outlets have run a story linking the Hammers – along with many other teams – with a move for Daniel Sturridge.

However, a recent report by The Express claims that West Ham United are not willing to match Liverpool’s transfer fee demands.

Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in Sturridge, but not at the price that Liverpool are demanding.

The Daily Mail believe that Liverpool want £40m for the former Chelsea and Manchester City forward.

Sturridge, when fit, is one of the best strikers in the Premier League.

The 27-year-old weighs in with pace, strength, skill and a real eye for goal.

But unfortunately, he is too similar to Andy Carroll insofar as he is injury prone.

Having spent vast periods of time out injured over the past several seasons, splashing a club record £40m fee on the left-footed striker would be a major risk for West Ham.

PSG can be more outlandish with their spending and can afford to risk a move for Sturridge at a high price but £40m is even too high for the French giants.
