Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge is due to have a medical at Liverpool on Sunday ahead of a £12 million ($19.5 million) transfer, British media reported Saturday.

Liverpool is ready to complete the deal with the European champions after a dispute with the striker’s representatives was resolved, the Liverpool Echo newspaper claimed.

The 23-year-old former Manchester City striker has only made seven league appearances for Chelsea this season, scoring one league goal against Tottenham in October.

Sturridge, who has four England caps, has scored 24 goals in 49 starts and 47 substitute appearances since his arrival at Stamford Bridge in 2009.

The midseason transfer window opens on Jan. 1.
