Discussing the move, the England international said: “I’m humbled and happy to be here. Brendan Rodgers said he sees me here for a long time and I also see myself here for a long time. I’ve not signed here to play for a couple of years and move on. I’ve signed to be here for as long as possible. It’s a humongous club- for me, one of the biggest in the world- and to have the fans and world-class players we have here is amazing. I’m hugely excited. I just can’t wait for the games to start rolling on. I’ve not played for a while – I’ve had a couple of injuries over the last few months- but I’m just happy now to join  such a great club, to be a part of a revolution and to be part of something new and something special. Hopefully we’ll be able to bring a bit of success to the fans”

Sturridge join Chelsea in 2009 after leaving Manchester City, yet endured a largely frustrating time at Stamford Bridge. He has been at the Bridge for three and a half years finding the net 24 times. However, during the loan spell at Bolton during 2010/11 season he showed off his ability with eight league goals in 12 appearances.

His performance for the trotters led to recognition on the international scene and after making his debut against Sweden in 2011, the 23 year old has gone on to make further three appearances. He is yet to score for the three lions.

Brendan Rodgers will be delighted to add some fire power to his squad. The Liverpool manager had showed his frustration when he failed to sign Clint Dempsey from Fulham particularly after Andy Carroll had been allowed to join West Ham on loan for the whole season. The failure to bring in anyone upfront has lead to a huge reliance on the Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez , although Liverpool have been fortunate that the Uruguayan has been in scintillating form this term, scoring 16 goals.
