Newcastle urged to sign Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge despite five Premier League starts this season

Newcastle United have been urged by Micky Gray to make a move for Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge in the summer after sealing promotion back to the Premier League.

After one season in the second tier of English football, the Magpies will be back among the big boys again next year following a 4-1 victory over Preston North End at St James' Park last night and plans to ensure they stay in the division can begin.

One player who could be available is Sturridge as he's made just five league starts under Jurgen Klopp this season and talkSPORT presenter Micky Gray has urged Rafa Benitez to raid his former club and take a gamble on the England international.

"Newcastle would snap your hands off right now for somebody like Daniel Sturridge," the former Sunderland defender said.

"He is a goalscorer who is going to get you 15, 20 goals a season.

"They might only get 25 to 30 games out of him at a push but those 15, 20 goals will keep you in the Premier League for another season.

"They should absolutely go and get him."

Injuries have once again halted his progress this season as he's started just once in the league since the turn of the year which has seen him yield just a single goal in that time and that was in the 2-2 draw against Sunderland on January 2nd.

However, when fully fit the 27-year-old has shown that he can be an effective striker for a Premier League side and has taken more shots per 90 minutes this season than United's Dwight Gayle, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Daryl Murphy and Ayoze Perez.
