Tottenham vs Liverpool: All the latest in the race for Jurgen Klopp

Tottenham are closing in on a deal for Liverpool’s Brazilian winger Daniel Sturridge, Sky sources understand.

The 20-year-old is thought to be one of the front runners to join Liverpool this summer, but could also be on the verge of joining Inter Milan or Chelsea in January.

The Merseyside club have struggled to find a replacement for Luis Suarez, and Sturridge has been linked with moves to Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

But Sky sources believe Tottenham are now in pole position to land the forward after Klopp admitted in July that he was considering the striker.

“The main thing is to get a player that can score goals and score goals,” the Liverpool boss said at the time.

“It is difficult because he’s a very good player, but he’s not in the squad.”

I am very happy about the position I have in and I am happy with the way the squad is.

“Liverpool are desperate to add to their attacking options and have been linked in recent weeks with Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Juventus’ Andrea Barzagli.

They also hope to land a defensive midfielder who can play at the back.

Sky Sports has contacted Liverpool for comment.
