Liverpool are lining up a loan deal for Chelsea striker Danny Sturridge.

The Sun says Chelsea are willing to sell the £15million-rated frontman, 23, and the player is desperate for first-team football.

Kop boss Brendan Rodgers needs a striker after Fabio Borini broke a metatarsal last week.

But Rodgers does not want to commit to such a big signing without making sure Sturridge fits his side's style of play.
