Liverpool have added to their strike force after completing the signing of Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge.

Sturridge, 23, who began his professional career at Manchester City, has joined the Reds on a long-term contract, and told the club’s official website that he intended to make his move a successful one.

Sturridge said: “I've signed to be here for as long as possible. It's a humongous club – for me, one of the biggest in the world – and to have the fans and world-class players we have here is amazing."

The England international, who scored 13 goals in 63 Barclays Premier League appearances for Chelsea, enjoyed his most prolific spell at Bolton Wanderers in the 2010/11 season when he struck eight goals in 12 appearances. He also represented Great Britain at the London 2012 Olympics.
