Liverpool look set to complete the signing of Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge after he successfully passed a medical at Melwood.

Liverpool will formally announce the deal when transfer window reopens on January 2.

Ex Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez confirmed about the medical when asked to comment on the rumours linking Sturridge to Liverpool.  He said:

“The information I have is that he was there today, passing a medical.  But we don’t have any more information at the moment.”

The fee agreed between the two clubs for the 23 year old is rumoured to be in the region of £12 million with a 3 and half year long contract.

I think if Sturridge could be great for us, I just hope the deal goes through smoothly.  What do you think?
