Liverpool sign striker Daniel Sturridge

Liverpool have finally landed their man, in striker Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea

The England International has penned a long term contract at the club and will be unveiled before their game versus Sunderland this evening

The striker has been in negotiations with the club for a the past two weeks after completing a medical at Melwood Training Ground after Christmas.

Personal terms had already been agreed for the former Manchester City graduate, with Liverpool paying £12 million to acquire his services.

With Luiz Suarez being the only recognised striker at Anfield after Andy Carroll's loan to West Ham, this will prove a key addition for Manager Brendan Rodgers, and will allow him to finally rotate his forward line.

Sturridge has the pace and skill to succeed at the top level, although his decision making is questionable along with his stubborn approach to win games on his own. If this can be managed carefully by the coaching staff at Liverpool, then this could prove to be a decent signing, along with the reported re-call option on Andy Carroll.
