Inter giving Daniel Sturridge a serious consideration
The name of Daniel Sturridge has been placed on the desk of Sabatini and Ausilio. The Liverpool forward, Englishman from Birmingham with Jamaican origins, was offered to Inter about 12 days ago, an offer that Inter have not taken seriously because their transfer market men are focusing on other targets such as Lisandro Lopez, Ramires and Rafinha.
As days are going by and phones are ringing off the charts, his name has started to gather some momentum. The Nerazzurri are showing interest in Sturridge but only with the usual formula of loan without obligation to buy. Among other things, the player recently returned to training after an injury that stopped him last December at the end of the game against Spartak Moscow in the Champions League. After a stop of 40 days or so, he could return to the call-up list for Monday match against Swansea or at most the match against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, the 27th.
Sturridge has not been significant for Liverpool this season with only 14 appearances (only one game that he played for all 90 minutes, started only in five games), scoring three goals, none of which are decisive. As a result, the player is looking for a new life and more playing time with a contract that expires in 2019. Inter, however, reiterate that the transaction could only be set solely and exclusively on the basis of loan with right to buy. After initial hesitation, Liverpool have returned with a counter offer: paid loan. Inter are seriously giving Sturridge a strong consideration regardless of whether or not they can sign Rafinha from Barcelona.
