The Englishman, who is now in Turkey with Trabzonspor, could be facing another ban.
Per The Sun, the Football Association is appealing the decision that saw Sturridge get a fine and a six-week ban for breaching betting rules.
If The FA are successful, it is possible that Sturridge will get an even lengthier ban.
The Association believes that Sturridge should be made an example to ensure that players do not even think about placing bets related to games or transfers that involve themselves.
Sturridge told his brother Leon to bet on him signing for Sevilla in the January 2018 transfer window.
