Inter Milan are the latest club to show an interest in signing Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge.
The England international has been made available this month as he looks to secure a place on the plane to the World Cup in Russia this Summer, but a deal has failed to materialise as yet.
But the Italian club could be set to offer the twenty-eight year old a lifeline as they consider making an offer to take him on loan for the remainder of the season, according to The Guardian.
Liverpool have reportedly slapped a £30m price tag on the former Manchester City and Chelsea man as the club looks to recoup some cash on the wantaway forward.
But that fee, coupled with his £150,000 week salary, has so far put off clubs as they look into the possibility of completing a deal to end his Anfield career.
It is looking increasingly likely that a temporary move ahead of a permanent exit in the Summer is going to be the outcome this month for the player who has netted just three goals so far this season.
Southampton and Sevilla have also expressed an interest in his services, but have failed to make an acceptable offer so far and Inter will need to stump up a significant loan fee on top of paying most of his wages if they want to get a transfer sorted.
