Inter interested in Sturridge deal

English Premier League

The England international has been strongly linked with a move away from Anfield after falling down the pecking order behind Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

As such, Sturridge has managed just 14 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring only three goals to leave his Merseyside future in doubt.

And, Serie A giants Inter are believed to be monitoring the forward's situation, with the Italian outfit expected to make contact with Liverpool over a loan deal in the coming days.

The Nerazzurri are said to view Sturridge as the ideal strike partner to Mauro Iardi, who has scored 18 goals in Serie A this season.
