Chelsea striker Sturridge denies making Liverpool demands

Daniel Sturridge's representatives have denied reports the Chelsea striker issued a string of demands to prospective new employers Liverpool. The 23 year old is believed to be a January target for Reds boss Brendan Rodgers.

The England international reportedly asked for an £80,000-a-week salary as well as assurances that he would be played as a striker, rather than employed in a wide role.

But his representatives, Octagon, released a statement which read: "Daniel Sturridge does not conduct his business in public.

"He also does not make demands in any negotiation, with regards to salary or his playing position.

"Any contract between a club and a player has to be based on mutual agreement."
