Inter Milan have made a move to sign Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge.
The Italian club have made a “serious” proposal to sign the England international on loan for the remainder of the season, according to Goal journalist Melissa Reddy.
Sturridge is keen to revive his flagging international career in the second half of the campaign and is reported to have asked the club to allow him to move on.
The former Chelsea and Manchester City forward is eager to secure a seat on the plane to Russia as part of England manager Gareth Southgate’s squad for the World Cup.
The twenty-eight year old has struggled for fitness and game time so far this season and appears to believe that a fresh start elsewhere could be just what he needs to get his career back on track.
And he could be handed the opportunity by Serie A contenders Inter, who have offered to pay a “substantial” loan fee on top of his wages – and are prepared to add a permanent deal clause into the mix.
Sturridge is said to have made a loan switch to Spanish club Sevilla his preference, but the professionalism and determination is said to have made him question his plans.
