Yesterday, the news had it that Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge was edging towards a move to Newcastle United and that only the striker’s wage demands stood in the way of him linking up with Rafa Benitez in the north-east of England this month. Today, he’s being linked with Inter Milan.
Reports from Italy’s Tuttosport that have since been carried into English feeds by The Mirror claim that Sturridge’s representatives have reached out to Inter Milan and that the striker is trying to make a move to Italy happen—and Inter are said to be looking for attacking reinforcements this month.
In theory at least, a move to Italy would seem to make sense for Sturridge, who remains an exceptional talent and deadly finisher but has lost his physical edge after years of injury issues. Still just 28, he needs to leave Liverpool to revive his career—and his World Cup chances.
Whether Inter are actually interested—and whether Sturridge’s people are courting the move—is anybody’s guess. It seems likely, though, that he will be leaving Anfield on a permanent deal this month. Whether it’s to Newcastle or Inter or somewhere else we’ll just have to wait and see.
