Liverpool looks to have sealed the transfer of Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge for $19.6 million, and Tom Ince from Blackpool for $4.6 million, according to ESPN. The moves will be completed early in the January transfer window, sources claim.

However, when questioned about Sturridge’s impending transfer, Blues coach Rafael Benitez was coy. "He [Sturridge] was training with us, he is fine,” the Spaniard said. “It is just a question of the club and some conversations with different options. But at the moment for me, as a coach, he is training and doing well. I can't say too much as I don't have much information."

Benitez also said that aging Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard won’t be going anywhere during the January transfer window. He noted that his options in the center of midfield are limited, notably due to the long-term injury of Oriol Romeu. "If you analyse our team, we don't have too many options in the middle of the park," Benitez said. “I will say to you he [Lampard] is fully committed, every training session, every game, an important player for us. I cannot say too much about what he feels, or what he doesn't feel, just that he is training well, he is doing well and I'm happy with his attitude."

Lampard has started just one of three games since returning from injury at the beginning of the month.
