Slaven Bilic admits that West Ham would be interested in signing Daniel Sturridge in January as speculation surrounding the out-of-favour Liverpool striker's future intensifies.

Sturridge has failed to establish himself under Jurgen Klopp this season, starting just four Premier League matches, and is behind both Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi in the pecking order at Anfield.

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 has stopped him being a 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% 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.
