Ex-Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp is interested in signing the forward, who he formerly worked with at Borussia Dortmund. Pep Guariola who is the incoming Manchester city boss is believed to be convincing Lewandowski to move to the Premier League with him.
It was also reported by Daily Star, that it was revealed by Sturridge has recently declared: “I am someone who wants to play every minute of every match so maybe when I’m not starting, it’s hard to take.”
The striker always seems to be enthusiastically excited and if he does not feature in all competitions he might not feature in Roy Hodgson’s Euro 2016 squad.
