A number of clubs are interested in the England international, although a Premier League move appears unlikely.

Turkish giants Fenerbahce have offered the ex-Chelsea and Manchester City ace a £9m-a-year package to join them after his six-year stint at Anfield, according to The Telegraph.

But they are just one of several teams from overseas hoping to snap-up Sturridge.

He is believed to have 13 offers in total from across the globe.

They include MLS outfit DC United, where he could replace the soon-to-be departed Wayne Rooney, La Liga’s Real Betis, French giants Marseille and Serie A side Bologna.

Now his future is expected to be resolved by the weekend as he considers his next move.

But it is not only teams from Europe and the USA keen on the forward.

It has also emerged that a potential switch to Qatar is on the table.

Fenerbahce look to be leading the way with their contract offer of £60,000-a-week.

And there is also a Liverpool connection that could help swing the race for his signature in their favour.

Sturridge has just been given the green light to resume playing after serving a short ban for breaching betting rules.

The FA are appealing the length of that suspension – which will be determined by an independent panel – as they look to extend it to six months.
