Aston Villa, Marseille watching Trabzonspor striker Daniel Sturridge

Aston Villa are being linked with Trabzonspor striker Daniel Sturridge.

The Daily Mail says Marseille and Aston Villa are among the clubs monitoring Sturridge's form at Trabzonspor.

The former Liverpool striker scored twice in Trabzon's 6-2 win over Kayserispor last Saturday, taking his tally to four goals in six starts for the Turkish side.

Sturridge moved to Turkey late in the summer as a free agent and had a stuttering start to the season with niggling Achilles and calf injuries but has been showing glimpses of his old form in recent weeks.

Marseille and Villa were interested in Sturridge during the summer but opted to prioritise other targets. However, both are looking to bolster their attack this month and Sturridge is back on their radar amid inflated market prices for forwards in this window.
