No thanks

Curious - any reason? I think he's what we need, if we can get him in on a fair wage and a short term deal.

Injury prone, hasn't played for an awful long time due to the ban.

Didn't see any of his time in Turkey but looked very uninterested whenever I saw him the last couple of years in England for Liverpool/West Brom.

A far cry from the Sturridge of old, who like you say would have been what we need.

Also think wages would be a lot higher than the gamble would justify.

Azza,

Folk don't realise pay per play contracts are as rare as rocking horse shite, and on the very rare times they happen, players would be looking for huge amounts, Sturridge's agent would almost certainly be looking at getting his Client 100K per game with win & Goal bonus on top plus a commitment to full-time contract if he achieved certain stages i.e. Goals/appearances.

If we were going down that route I would prefer Welbeck but dont think Dong would contemplate either.

There is absolutely zero chance of Sturridge getting anywhere close to £100,000 a week on any kind of contract barring somewhere like China or Quatar.

The 'Sturridge is training with us rumour' seems to surface every 3 months and to date it has never been true

Wouldn’t go near him. Hasn’t played consistently for about five seasons. Would want big money.

Not from someone I directly know, but I do know they have contacts at the club so there is a level of credibility about it, but can't provide more which is I why I said allegedly in OP.
