According to a report from Football.London, Daniel Sturridge could be an option for West Ham in the summer, and some Hammers fans took to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
The 30-year-old ex-Liverpool striker is currently banned from football until June after having breached betting regulations. And he will be available on a free transfer in the summer, having been released from Turkish club Trabzonspor.
West Ham will undoubtedly be keen to sign a new striker when the summer transfer window opens.
And Football.London claims that Champions League winner Sturridge could be an option for the east London outfit.
It could be argued that the 30-year-old is not the man for the job, however.
The former Liverpool striker has experienced awful injury problems over the past five or six years.
And he is far from mobile nor does he possess any kind of real pace. There are real question marks hanging over Sturridge’s head pertaining to whether he could still cut it in the Premier League. Especially having not played for so long.
Some West Ham fans took to Twitter in reaction to the links with the former England international, and they were far from happy…
