Tottenham are considering a move for Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge, according to the Mirror.

Sturridge is out of contract at the end of the season and will be available on a free transfer unless he agrees fresh terms with Liverpool.

The 29-year-old’s career has been hindered by injuries in recent seasons and he has struggled for minutes this term, scoring just two goals in 12 Premier League appearances.

According to Tuesday’s print edition of the Mirror – as spotted by HITC – Spurs could be tempted to make a move.

However, it is believed Sturridge earns £120,000 a week at Liverpool, which could be an issue for Tottenham.

The Londoners may not be keen to pay a huge salary to a player who will be back-up to Harry Kane.

Fernando Llorente, also out of contract in the summer, is expected to move on at the end of the season, meaning Spurs will need a new striker to provide depth up front.

But Sturridge’s injuries and wages will probably prevent Tottenham from taking their initial interest any further.
