Daniel Sturridge's Liverpool career will always be greeted with the phrase 'what could have been'.
During the Reds' stunning 2013/14 campaign where they just missed out on the Premier League title, Sturridge was one of the finest strikers on the planet, forging a lethal trio with Luis Suarez and Raheem Sterling.
He scored 21 goals in just 32 appearances but since that season, he has been the image of mediocrity, all be it hampered with injury issues as well.
He's managed just 80 Premier League appearances in the last three-and-a-half seasons, scoring 17 goals.
As such, Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool have made it known that they would consider offloading Sturridge in January, with Inter Milan and Sevilla rumoured to be two clubs interested.
According to the Daily Mail, the Englishman had his heart set on a loan deal to Sevilla in order to start his career in La Liga.
However, Spanish football expert Guillem Balague has provided an update on the situation and it doesn't look good for Sturridge's preferred move.

Interesting, so Inter look like Sturridge's best bet of exiting Anfield in this window.
A move to the Serie A side may not be the best move for the Liverpool man, with Argentine forward Mauro Icardi firmly the club's number one choice up front.
According to Sky Sports, Inter are keen on a loan deal with an option to buy, but will not force the issue.
The most likely outcome for Sturridge appears to be a stay at Liverpool until at least the summer.
After the loss of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, the Reds would probably be wise to keep hold of their attacking depth, given that they are still active in three competitions.
If Roberto Firmino were to pick up a serious injury, Sturridge would be the perfect man to fill the Brazilian's boots.
