England international and Premier League outfit Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is reportedly ready to sign a fresh Liverpool contract, having returned to form this campaign, according to the latest reports in the British media.

Sturridge only made six Premier League matches for the Reds last term, and his career with the Merseyside club looked to be over when Englishman joined Darren Moore’s West Bromwich Albion on loan in January window.

Daniel Sturridge has forced his way back into German coach Jurgen Klopp’s plans this season, however, netting four goals in nine appearances in all competitions (Premier League, EFL Cup, Champions League) in spite of not yet starting a Premier League game.

Sturridge’s current contract with Liverpool will expire at the end of the campaign, but according to an exclusive report by tabloid newspaper The Sun, the star could sign a £140,000-per-week contract extension, with the terms to be structured on his appearances.

Liverpool signed Daniel Sturridge from Premier League rivals Chelsea in 2013 for a reported £13.5 million fee, since then the 29-year-old star has scored 68 goals in 142 appearances for the Reds.
