Chelsea are demanding £25 million to sell striker Danny Sturridge. The Sun says Sturridge, 22, fears that his first-team chances will be badly limited this season.

But, with both Liverpool and Tottenham interested, the European champions will not let him leave Stamford Bridge on the cheap.

Sturridge has not started any of the Blues' three league games so far in 2012-13 and was also on the bench for the Community Shield clash against Manchester City.
