Daniel Sturridge is ready to quit Liverpool in January to save his World Cup dream.
The 28-year-old marksman has been an unused substitute in the Reds ’ last two games — despite scoring in both of the two before that.
His decision to cut his losses will spark a mid-season scramble, with Sturridge still seen as one of the country’s most gifted finishers.
The marksman was among seven high-profile stars axed by Gareth Southgate for the prestige friendlies against Germany and Brazil earlier this month, with the England boss naming him as one of the big-hitters not getting enough game time to be included in his current plans.
Fearing his situation is unlikely to change at Anfield over the remaining months before next summer's tournament in Russia, Sturridge is set to follow the likes of Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere in seeking a fresh start to get his career back on track.
Sources close to him are hoping Liverpool will put a realistic price-tag on his head when the transfer window reopens.
A loan deal is even a possibility, despite the Reds rejecting such an approach from French giants Paris Saint-Germain last winter.
