Slaven Bilic plays down Daniel Sturridge speculation

Slaven Bilic describes reports linking Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge with a move to West Ham United as "only paper talk".

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has dismissed suggestions that his club is keen to sign Daniel Sturridge.

A recent report claimed that the Hammers had set aside £18m to recruit the injury-hit centre-forward from Liverpool.

However, when asked about the speculation by reporters, Bilic described it as "only paper talk".

"That is only a rumour and there is nothing behind it," said the Croatian.

"I am not talking about who we want. Daniel Sturridge is a big player and a big name, but that is only paper talk."

Sturridge has made just five appearances for the Merseysiders this season.
