It is reported that the Gunners’ chief scout, Steve Rowley, is the main man behind any move for the England international.
Sturridge is supposedly frustrated with the Chelsea management at having to play in a wider role rather than his favoured central striker position, where he believes he is most effective. Especially given the lack of goals from Fernando Torres and Didier Drogba, with the Englishman leading Chelsea’s scoring charts this season following a successful loan spell with Bolton last year.
Any offer for the former Man City attacker would realistically have to be around the £20 million mark and a move would surely hinge on whether Arsenal keep hold of skipper Robin van Persie in the summer.
The 22-year-old still has two-and-a-half years left on his current deal with Chelsea so far refusing any talk of a new deal, as his current has plenty of time left to run.
