Cape Town - West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has admitted he would be interested in signing Daniel Sturridge, should Liverpool decide to cash in on the injury-prone striker.

The 27-year-old has been made to endure a frustrating spell at Anfield, following a seemingly endless string of injury problems.

And with the England international set to miss out for the Reds this weekend, against the Hammers at Anfield on Sunday, rumours over Sturridge's future have once again come to the fore.

When quizzed over rumours linking West Ham with a move for Sturridge in January, Bilic told reporters, taken from Mirror.co.uk: "He's one of the biggest talents, he's a great player.

"The talent is there, the touch, the finishing, everything is great. The only thing that's stopped him being regular for club and country are the injuries.

"He's just a player that has been linked with us, basically, and we've been linked with almost every player.

"We're always there in contention. Most of the time it's absolutely not true, 95 percent of the time. But you're asking me about Sturridge and I have no problem about that.

"All the clubs are thinking about him because he is that kind of player.

"I don't know his work rate, I don't know his dedication to his job or whatever but unfortunately for England and for Liverpool and especially for him he's injured. That's his problem."
