Liverpool and England striker Daniel Sturridge has reportedly set his sights on a move to Italy and Inter in particular during this January transfer window. The former Chelsea player is looking to force a move out of Merseyside in order to play more regularly in an attempt to make England’s World Cup squad. The player has all but offered himself to the Milan based club but Inter on the other hand don’t seem to keen and are currently stalling whilst they await better options.
Calciomercato.com reports that Inter’s current indecision stems from the fact that at 28-years-old, he isn’t young anymore and over time with age his injury troubles have also gotten much worse. Another negative is that tactically he doesn’t fit in to Inter’s style of play at the moment. He prefers to play up front as one of the main strikers rather than out wide but with Inter captain Mauro Icardi currently occupying that position it is hard to see where Sturridge fits in. Finally there is the economic factor. Liverpool will only look to loan the player out with an obligation to buy rather than the right to buy. Considering Inter’s current battle with Financial Fair Play, this seems like a deal that they are not likely to accept.
