Southampton reportedly pull out of the race to signing Liverpool man

Sturridge

According to reports, Southampton have pulled out of the race to sign Daniel Sturridge from Liverpool after the Merseyside giants slapped a £50 million price tag on the player.

Sturridge has fallen down the pecking order at Anfield this season with manager JurgenKlopp opting to utilize Roberto Firmino over him.

The 28-year-old is desperate for a move away from Anfield given that his chances of winning selection for the England squad that will participate at the 2018 world cup are fading.

Sturridge is a proven scorer at the highest level and played a crucial role for the Liverpool side that nearly won the Premier League during the 2013/14 season and as a result, there are a number of clubs across Europe that are interested in signing him, including Inter Milan and Sevilla.

Liverpool meanwhile are keen to recoup some of the £75 million that they forked out to sign Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton, hence the £50 million price tag.
