Cape Town - Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted that the future of Daniel Sturridge hasn't been resolved yet, saying that no decisions will be made about his squad before the end of the season.

The 27-year-old Sturridge has struggled for fitness and game time since Klopp took over from Brendan Rodgers in October 2015, making just five Premier League starts so far this campaign.

The former Manchester City and Chelsea forward has been linked with a host of clubs recently, and while Klopp ruled out a departure in the recent January transfer window, the England international could be shown the Anfield exit at the end of the season.

"I have no idea what happens in the summer. It is not only Daniel but a lot of players," Klopp is quoted as saying in the Liverpool Echo.

"Daniel was not in training for eight or nine days because of a virus infection. We have to bring him back to the best shape possible and then bring this season to an end as successfully as possible.

"Then we will make decisions and speak about Daniel and any other players about what will happen at the end of the season.

"A lot of things will influence this and we can speak about it when it is time."

After stumbling to a disappointing 3-1 loss to Leicester City on Monday, the Reds take on Arsenal at Anfield in a must-win Premier League match on Saturday.

Kick off is at 19:30.
