Ex-Liverpool centre-back Stephen Warnock has reported that Daniel Sturridge is a £50m forward.

This comes following the striker’s performance against Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The Merseyside Reds set to beat the PSG 3-2, with English striker opening the scoring on the night with an excellent header.

Andy Robertson whipped a cross in from the left and Sturridge evaded his marker to head home from six-yards out.

It was Sturridge’s first Champions League start in six years and his first start for Liverpool in any competition since November 2017.

He repaid Liverpool boss faith with a goal and a good performance, and this is what Stephen Warnock had to say in his article for the BBC. 

“In pre-season, when Reds boss Jurgen Klopp wanted to see him fit and hungry, his attitude was exactly right. I watched him a lot and his performances were impressive too.

“That is why Klopp handed him his first start in a Reds shirt since November 2017 because, when you get Daniel fit and firing, you cannot ignore him. We are talking about having a £50m player at your disposal because he is potentially a world-class striker.”

The 29-year-old has found back of the net 49 times in 103 Premier League games for the Reds since joining the club from the Blues back in 2012.
