7/1 Odds Daniel Sturridge Joins Tottenham

Like a London bus, when one bit of bad news come along another seems to follow right behind it. Tottenham fans know all about London buses as they make their way to Wembley for home games, but their club has had three not two pieces of bad news so now is the time to enter into the transfer market.

Tottenham knew that Heung-Min Son would be missing games due to the Asian Cup but then Harry Kane was ruled out until March. It got even worse when Dele Alli was injured at the weekend. With the club still in four competitions, they need reinforcements and perhaps Daniel Sturridge could be the answer.

Full Set

Sturridge is a proven goalscorer but finding it nigh impossible to get back into Liverpool’s first team. Moving to Tottenham could be a good deal for both Spurs and Sturridge.  A move to Tottenham would complete the set for the England international.

 He’s already played for Manchester City and Chelsea before joining Liverpool. A move to Tottenham would mean he’s played for all of the current top four in the English Premier League.

Despite joining City at the age of 13, he only played 21 league games for them but did score five goals. 2009 saw him transferred to Chelsea and like most of their young players ended up on loan at Bolton. He scored eight goals in 12 Premier League games for them in the 2010/11 season.

Goals Aplenty When Fit

Eventually the goals came for him at Stamford Bridge leading to a transfer to Liverpool in 2012. His first two seasons saw him score 31 goals in 43 league games including 21 in 29 in the 2013/14 season.

The problem with Sturridge is that he’s injury prone and has an ongoing gambling allegation against him.  Even a loan at WBA last season ended early due to injury. He’s fit now and would be a good signing for Tottenham, it’s 7/1 that Sturridge comes to their rescue in the January transfer window.
