Chelsea striker Danny Sturridge is making hefty demands to join Liverpool next month. The Mirror says Sturridge is demanding a staggering £80,000 a week to move to Liverpool in January.

The Reds have already asked Chelsea about their reserve striker's availability, and look set to follow up their interest, which dates back to the summer, in the winter transfer window.

There is a feeling at Anfield, however, that Sturridge has done little in the last 12 months to justify such big wages since his fine start to last season.

The 23-year-old's camp also insist he MUST play through the middle if he were to move to Liverpool next month.
