Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge reportedly rejected a big money move to the Chinese Super League at the end of last week.

The England forward only started seven Premier League matches last season as the injury-prone striker struggled for fitness once again.

According to The Mirror, Chinese Super League outfit Beijing Guoan, who are coached by former Bayer Leverkusen boss Roger Schmidt, attempted to sign the forward before the league's transfer deadline on Friday, but Sturridge rejected the move.

The 27-year-old Sturridge has largely endured a frustrating four-and-a-half year with Liverpool after moving to the Merseyside outfit from Chelsea in 2013.

Former Manchester City and Chelsea star have an impressive scoring record in the Premier League, however, having registered 46 times in 89 league appearances for the Reds.

London base side West Ham United have previously been credited with an interest in the injury prone striker.
