Daniel Sturridge's Next Destination is Up in the Air

Latest News

Sturridge terminates his contract

Daniel Sturridge has terminated his contract with Trabzonspor by mutual agreement after just six months with the club. The former Chelsea man joined the Turkish side in the summer after he was released by Liverpool following a long spell of injuries, whilst the rise of their dominant front three and Divock Origi's 'super-sub' stature continued to push him towards the exit.

Sturridge, 30, is able to join a team outside of the transfer window now, as he is a free agent. Here, we take a look at the Englishman's value on Football Index and how his price has changed since his decision to leave Turkey and how it could well increase with the clubs linked at taking him onboard.

Impressive goalscoring feats

Sturridge has been no stranger to goals over the past decade, although injuries have drastically affected his chance in front of goal. During his time at Liverpool, the striker bagged 68 times in 160 appearances, which includes the memorable season where he netted 22 times in 29 outings in the Premier League.

The former Reds man saw his price on Football Index increase when he signed for Trabzonspor in August and his price rocketed from £0.30 to £0.49 when he began to get into a flow in Turkey, scoring in back-to-back Super Lig games. In total, Sturridge managed to bag seven times and assist four times for the Turkish outfit in his six-month spell.

Trabzonspor are top of the Super Lig on goal difference and they have a game in hand over second-placed Galatasaray thanks to the goalscoring abilities from players like Sturridge. His goals in Turkey proved he still has the capabilities in front of goal and the former England international will surely be a worthwhile signing for a team struggling up top.

Where will Sturridge go next?

Since Sturridge and Trabzonspor announced the mutual agreement of his termination, no doubt clubs have been taking a close look at the 30-year-old. Indeed, with many years potentially still ahead for the versatile forward, various outfits out there are surely thinking of signing Sturridge, considering he will be on a free.

Reports have emerged regarding the Englishman joining David Beckham at Inter Miami, where he could regain his appetite for goals; Miami lost their inaugural game in the MLS and are in desperate need of a prolific scorer, such as Sturridge. It is important to add that since the ex-Liverpool man left Trabzonspor, his price on Football Index almost doubled, temporarily, showing that there is some expectation for him to find himself again outside of Turkey.

Now, other MLS sides have been mentioned such as Atlanta United and New York City and it's fair to say that Sturridge would fancy himself to get back to goalscoring ways against the defenders in the famous American division. Down the years we have seen ex-Premier League stars such as Robbie Keane and Bradley Wright-Phillips ease into life in America, whilst we have witnessed Zlatan Ibrahimovic and ex-Arsenal man Carlos Vela light up the MLS in the past 12 months.

The Birmingham-born's price on Football Index has been fluctuating at around £0.50 over the past 24 hours and will most likely increase should he find a new club, whilst this price could go up more, should he join the ranks of an MLS side.
