“I see myself as a striker. I think I perform best there because my attributes, I believe, are best as a central striker.
“But I have played on the wing and have learned a lot doing so. I'd never refuse to play in that position and I've never demanded to play up front, either.”
Of the opportunity to play alongside Suarez, Sturridge said: “To have him as a teammate is great. He's a very good player, very talented and rated as a one of the best players in attacking positions in the world right now. It's good to be part of a team with him in and I'm sure we'll be able to play well together.
“With Luis, Raheem (Sterling) and the other players that are here, it's going to be great for myself and I'm sure we'll connect well together. We all have similar attributes, so hopefully we'll be able to create a few nightmares for defenders!”
Sturridge was ineligible for Wednesday’s Premier League clash against Sunderland and could be made to wait for his debut with Liverpool’s FA Cup third round tie at non-League Mansfield Town on Sunday in danger of succumbing to the bad weather.
The Conference side’s home match against Grimsby Town last Saturday was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch and, with the forecast gloomy for the remainder of the week, there are fears the game could fall foul of the elements.
Liverpool remain keen on re-signing their former winger Tom Ince from Blackpool, with Rodgers also tracking Paris Saint-Germain striker Kevin Gameiro.
The Anfield outfit will look to move on several players, with Joe Cole now attracting attention from former club West Ham United along with Queens Park Rangers.
And Nuri Sahin may also depart, with the Turkey international having grown frustrated at his lack of games since moving to Liverpool on a season-long loan from Real Madrid.
The loan can be cancelled should all three parties give their consent, with Fulham, Inter Milan and Sahin’s former club Borussia Dortmund all monitoring developments.
Fulham would need to agree a deal with Real over the player’s wages, but it is believed Sahin is willing to take a pay cut to guarantee regular football.
