Former Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is close to agreeing a lucrative deal with Trabzonspor after arriving in Turkey to undertake the formalities of a transfer, sources have told ESPN FC.

The 29-year-old free agent, who was courted by Fenerbahce earlier this summer, has been assessing the options available to him with clubs from La Liga, MLS and Qatar interested in signing him.

Trabzonspor have put the best proposal together, offering him a two-year contract understood to be worth just under £3 million per year.

There could be an option for a further 12 months, with Sturridge’s representatives – including his uncle and manager Dean Sturridge – having met with the club’s vice-president Sertac Guven last week.

If all goes as planned, the Super Lig side expect to announce the signing of the England international this week, with fans sharing clips of themselves doing the Sturridge dance on social media in an effort to convince the forward to complete the move.

Sturridge was released from Liverpool when his contract expired at the end of June, saying goodbye on a high after the Champions League final triumph against Tottenham in Madrid.

He scored 67 goals for the club in 160 appearances following his £12m transfer from Chelsea in January 2013. (ESPN)
