£120k-a-week striker once managed by Rodgers would be ideal signing for Leicester

Daniel Sturridge’s future with Liverpool in the long run looks very bleak after struggling for form and playing time this season.

The Englishman has racked up just four goals in 22 games in all competitions this season, and that is quite simply not enough for a player with his ability.

Sturridge is out of contract in the summer, and he looks destined to leave Anfield, with Liverpool unlikely to renew his current £120,000-a-week contract, but he may have a chance with a second-tier side in the league.

The 29-year-old could struggle for playing time if he holds out for another top-six club, but he seems perfectly suited for a mid-table Premier League side.

Leicester City could be the ideal destination for him, with Brendan Rodgers keen to bolster his attacking ranks at the King Power Stadium.

The Northern Irishman signed Sturridge for Liverpool in 2013, and he would surely be able to get the best out of the striker once again.

The Liverpool hitman enjoyed the most prolific period of his career under the Rodgers, netting 43 goals in 70 appearances in all competitions.

Leicester have Jamie Vardy as first-choice striker and the England international remains an integral part of the team, but with age not on his side, Rodgers will want another centre-forward who can provide competition or serve as backup for the Englishman.

And with Daniel Sturridge in line to be a free agent in July, Leicester City would only have to pay for his wages with no transfer fee included.
