Manchester City face a battle to hold onto young striker Danny Sturridge, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool following him.

The 18-year-old striker's current three-year deal runs out at the end of next season but, because of the turmoil behind the scenes at Eastlands, he has yet to be made a new offer. England youth star Sturridge is the only player to have scored in the Premier League, FA Cup and FA Youth Cup in one season.
