Liverpool have opened negotiations with Chelsea over striker Daniel Sturridge.
The England international has been heavily linked with a move away from London after being pushed down the pecking order by Fernando Torres and has refused to open talks over a new deal, a sure sign of his determination to leave with Liverpool being the most likely destination.
Brendan Rodgers has made it clear on several occasions that he will be looking to bring two or three new faces to Anfield, with a striker being at the top of his shopping list after being left with very few options upfront after Andy Carroll was sent on loan to West Ham.
Chelsea are looking to find a suitor for Sturridge as they try to raise funds for Atletico Madrid sensation Radamel Falcao and with the Chelsea youngster's contract running down they don't want the player leaving on a free at the end of next season.
