Gerrard backs Sturridge to shine in Brazil
Steven Gerrard is confident that Daniel Sturridge can star at this summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil, TalkSport understands.
The striker has been in superb form since moving to Liverpool last January, scoring thirty-two appearances in thirty-nine appearances, while he netted his third senior England goal in their 1-0 win over Denmark last week.
His captain at both club and international level believes that the 24 year old can continue his form and outshine his contemporaries at the show piece event in South America.
The former Chelsea and Manchester City man is currently second in the race for this season’s Premier League golden boot, behind fellow Reds forward Luis Suarez.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid are set to rival Liverpool for the signature of Sevilla’s Alberto Moreno, according to TalkSport.
The 21 year old, who has a release clause of £25m, is thought to favour a move to the La Liga giants, which would mean that Brendan Rodgers would need to look elsewhere in his pursuit of a new left-back.
TalkSport understands that Juventus’ Giorgio Chiellini, who has been linked with a move to both Liverpool and Manchester United, has ruled out a move to the Premier League at the end of the season.
The Italy international has revealed his desire to end his career with the Serie A leaders, who are well on course to clinch a third straight championship.
