We must learn from past errors, and avoid paying ridiculous sums for over-priced British players. I'm not British-bashing, the point is: why pay £15m for a bench-warmer that may turn out to be a turkey when you can purchase a quality player on the continent for much less.

"Sturridge is not the man. If he was half as good as he thinks is he would have replaced Torres at Chelsea. He isn't and he hasn't. Definitely no."

"think that we could face a salary demand of £80000 for Daniel Sturridge, but I would not be agree to pay £15m as price tag on him. Get him but not for more than £8-10m!"

"I do think that Sturridge could offer us something but maybe not instantly which is what we need right now. If we are to go and get him then lets not pay silly sums of money for him and also buy another striker of a very high standard as 1 striker alone is not going to cut it this window. I'm no scout however so will back whoever comes in. YNWA."

"£15m for Sturridge ..NO THANKS, if this is true I will be shocked, I would buy him at around 5-6m as he can play on the wing or up front but we would still need to buy a top class forward and at that price I doubt that we could afford another as well"

"I would be very surprise if we go in for sturridge. He is not a vocal point player who can hold the ball up, good touch, run the channels, but most importantly finish. The guy is just not good enough. Rather we go for south american player a no namer."

"these are the same fans that wanted Gaston Ramirez and Rasmus Elm and look where they ended up. If Sturridge comes i'll welcome him - he just needs a manager to fully believe in him and he will score. "

"This will be Andy Carroll/ Downing/Henderson all over again. I mean seriously, why can't the manager and his scout team go for players with real quality. Enough with the English flops (no offense), go for real quality, not nationality!"

"Overrated and selfish player. Why would Liverpool buy a Man City and Chelsea reject even though he is English. The player is overrated and will be a huge big disappointment as Downing has proved to be. If BR gets Sturridge then he is making the same mistake as his predecessors splashing big on overrated English players."

"We need a goal scorer, don't think Sturridge fits the bill, having said that he generally only has one thing on his mind when he gets the ball & Thea's go for goal, but his tally isn't great."

"Sturridge. No, no, no. Nowhere near good enough. Simple as. We need a proven goalscorer. Better not spend any money than waste more. How can he have doubled in value whilst sitting on the Chelski bench???????????"

"he isn't that bad. But I don't think he will give us that instant impact in front of goal. I doubt fsg will be splashing too much money on signings. 15 million sounds a bit too much and would leave us with pittance for other signings. Maybe Bent on loan as an option and buy Wallcott or Ba. However, If we can't get good strikers in jan then invest in a top defensive mid to cover Lucas. "

"Sturridge is a decent backup striker...a player you have around and give some cup games and league games to give your core of the team some rest. There is a chance of him developing into a lethal striker over time just as there is a chance of Adam Morgan developing into a lethal striker over time. Morgan over Sturridge at 15 million pounds all day!!!"

"Sturridge is young and a good all round player who can score goals. It's not his fault that various Chelsea managers have ignored him. If the price is right, Get him!"

"IMO he could be as good as Theo Walcott... He can be a good option for Us... but I would prefer a Natural No.9 like Hunterlaar as ever since Torres left, there is no Natural no.9 for us."

"Is Sturridge good with his head? I think our squad is a bit small and we have problems with teams like Stoke in set pieces and we make only few goals from corners. So the striker should be also good with his head like Huntelaar and Cavani. ANd Ba?"

"Although this is mere speculation, I want to believe BR do consider the views of the fans. Sturridge is a NO NO. There was a cry for Silva, Carzola, Mata, Arda Turan and what did we get? Overhyped British talent. A look the league will tell us that the best players are not British, so what are we trying to prove? "

"If we get Daniel Sturridge and Chelsea get Falcao or Cavani ILL BE DEVESTATAED!! It is LFC who should e signing Falcao or Cavani!! Having said that Sturridge is only being left out the Chelsea side because Abramovich wouldn't let Di Matteo drop Torres. Hence he hired Rafa. "

"I think he would be a good signing. He scored 11 prem goals last season from right midfield and he got 8 goals for Bolton in 12 appearances. He's young, has pace and is confident. Btw some fans on here are awful. 'I would rather support another team' well off then and support Chelski. Sturridge is coming YNWA"
WhelanR

"No guarantees at Liverpool mate. I remember the days when it did not matter what you name was or what you did the previous season, you were dropped if you played badly. Sturridge is worth 8m at a push. "

"Please do not buy him over priced, lazy, and over rated what has he ever done to justify £15M even half this figure is too much."

"The one thing that people learn from history is that they DO NOT LEARN FROM history. there are so many other quality strikers , in Spain alone there is Ruben Castro from Real Betis this guy scores for fun, Sola from Osasuna, Valeron form Deportivo la Coruna. We could get any of these guys for l0-15 mill and they ARE much much much much much netter than Sturridge and Bent combined!!!!"

"I would welcome Sturridge anyday and 15M sounds about right! He is better than Borini and Carroll. Where are the fans that wanted him when we sold Torres to Chelsea? To many plastic fans on this site. Remember Liverpool DO NOT have 30M+ to spend on the likes of Cavani or Falcao. Get a reality check!!! "

"So we won't be signing any superstar players anyway you look at it. We might buy a future superstar, some player most of us have never heard of or know little about. That player may fail. The only thing I know for sure is that the gaffer will try and get the right type of player, as he says "fits the profile", while improving the team and squad as a whole ."
