DANIEL STURRIDGE wants to join Inter Milan, according to reports in Italy.
The Liverpool striker is desperate to leave Anfield this month as he looks for first team football.
With the World Cup on the horizon, Sturridge knows he needs to be playing regularly if he is to make Gareth Southgate’s 23-man squad.
And, despite interest from West Ham, Corriere dello Sport report he is keen to test himself abroad, and would prefer a move to Inter over Sevilla, who are also interested.
Liverpool would be willing to accept a negotiate a two-year loan deal worth £1.75million with the obligation to buy for £25m.
Inter would be happy with that, but first need to offload striker Eder, who Crystal Palace are interested in signing.
However, the Eagles also want a loan deal with the obligation to buy, while the Nerazzurri require a straight transfer.
Sturridge, 28, is likely to feature for Liverpool in their FA Cup fourth round clash with West Brom, but that is unlikely to have any bearing on his future.
The incredible form of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have limited the former Manchester City and Chelsea man’s game time.
He had made 15 appearances and scored three goals this term.
