It is fair to say it has not been the best summer for the 29 year old, it started off by not getting offered a new contract by Liverpool and ended with a FA ban of 6 weeks and a £75,000 fine for breaking FA regulations on gambling plus while on holiday in the US his house was broken into and his dog stolen.

Thankfully his dog was returned unharmed and now it is also looking like his playing career is about to get the kick start it needs with a rumoured move to Turkey on the cards.

According to ​ESPN, It is Trabzonspor, who have offered Sturridge a two-year contract with the option for a third season with the club, as well as an ‘attractive’ signing-on fee.

Fenerbache have also been previously linked with the English striker with clubs from the US and England also believed to be interested in signing the free agent.
