Chelsea striker Sturridge set for Liverpool medical ahead of transfer


LIVERPOOL, United Kingdom (AFP) - Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge is due to have a medical at Liverpool on Sunday ahead of a £12 million (S$23.7 million) transfer, British media reported on Saturday.

Liverpool are ready to complete the deal with the English Premier League champions after a dispute with the striker's representatives was resolved, the Liverpool Echo newspaper claimed.

The 23-year-old former Manchester City striker has only made seven league appearances for Chelsea this season, scoring one league goal against Tottenham in October.

Sturridge, who has four England caps, has scored 24 goals in 49 starts and 47 substitute appearances since his arrival at Stamford Bridge in 2009.
