Striker Daniel Sturridge joins Liverpool from Chelsea
Liverpool have announced the signing of Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge for an undisclosed fee.
Sturridge is believed to have undergone a medical at Liverpool last month ahead of the January transfer window.
The Reds have now confirmed the arrival of the England international, 23, who has made only one Premier League start for Chelsea this season.
“I’m humbled and happy to be here,” he said. “I’ve not signed here to play for a couple of years and move on.”
Rodgers is keen to add to his striking options after letting Andy Carroll join West Ham on loan in August and then missing out on former Fulham striker Clint Dempsey before the summer window closed.
Sturridge scored 13 times in all competitions for Chelsea last season, including 11 in the Premier League.
But a hamstring injury has limited his opportunities this season and he has not featured for the European champions since the 2-1 defeat at West Brom on 17 November.
