Daniel Sturridge is being targeted by Inter and another unexpected European club

Daniel Sturridge has almost become a forgotten man at Liverpool.

The 28-year-old was once one of the most prolific strikers in the Premier League, but a series of injuries in recent years have hampered his performances.

As a result, he is fast falling down the pecking order at the Merseyside club, with Roberto Firmino the main choice and Dominic Solanke also being given more playing time.

Such competition, along with more injury woes, means that Sturridge has been limited to just five starts in the league this year, in which he has scored just two goals.

With Sturridge out of the picture at Liverpool, and with the World Cup fast approaching, there is a fairly good chance he decides to seek first team football elsewhere as he looks to force his way back into England selection.

Inter Milan have previously expressed their willingness to sign the England striker but no deal between the two parties have been agreed as of yet.


It has now emerged that another unexpected European club is interested in Sturridge, and have already made a bid this January.

The Telegraph report that Spanish club Sevilla have made an offer to take the Englishman on loan, but that was rebuffed by Liverpool.

However, this does not mean that Sturridge won't leave the club this month.

It is believed that Sturridge has become frustrated by his lack of first team opportunities, and as a result he is willing to leave.


But his current employers will not let him go on the cheap, with Liverpool demanding £30 million for his services.

The report also suggests that a number of English clubs are also interested but are hesitating about the move due to his injury woes.

Although these interested parties are not named, the Telegraph claim that West Ham, Southampton and Arsenal have all been linked with a move for the former Chelsea striker in recent years and months.

Although a move to either Sevilla or Inter would be considered a huge surprise, Sturridge may well have to move abroad this January, either on a temporary or a permanent deal, if he wants to force his way into England's World Cup squad.
