Daniel Sturridge is edging ever closer to leaving Liverpool as he searches for regular first team football in hope of reigniting his career.
The striker looks set to depart in the January window in aid of gaining the playing time he needs to fight for a place in Gareth Southgate’s England World Cup squad.
Recurring injury setbacks have cruelly tarnished the gifted forward’s time on Merseyside since his stunning 2013/2014 season, in which he scored 24 goals in all competitions as the Reds fell agonisingly short of winning the Premier League title.
He has since netted just 28 times and has managed only 14 appearances under Jurgen Klopp this season.
Sturridge’s time at the club now appears to be drawing to an end, with Liverpool’s front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino proving inseparable in the starting lineup.
The 28-year-old has agreed on a loan move to Inter Milan, which Liverpool are seemingly happy to sanction, according to Italian outlet Calciomercato.
The club recently slapped a £30million price-tag on the Englishman, which appears to have swayed teams away from seeking an immediate permanent deal.
It’s frustratingly common knowledge that a fit Sturridge boasts the natural ability to be one of Europe’s most prolific scorers.
The slightly slower tempo in Italian football might just serve Sturridge well in terms of cutting out the prolonged periods of explosive football and the high intensity approach that the Premier League demands.
Providing he can stay healthy, Inter would be getting a dangerously unpredictable forward with the motivation to make a name for himself in quick time.
Having suffered so regularly with injuries, a man of his talent deserves another spell in the spotlight.
