According to Sky in Italy, Inter Milan are confident they can agree a deal to sign Sturridge on loan this month, with the Italians unwilling to meet Liverpool's £30 million valuation of the striker to make the deal permanent.
The injury-prone forward has not made a Premier League appearance since the end of November and only has three goals in all competitions this season, but remains eager for first-team action in a World Cup year.
Reports yesterday suggested terms between Sturridge and Inter have already been agreed.
However Sevilla are only said to be interested in a loan deal for the rest of the campaign, while Liverpool are only interested in selling for a fee in the region of £25million.
What Jon Rahm said after winning CareerBuilder Challenge
Rahm took the PGA Tour by storm past year , climbing up the world rankings after a number of strong finishes. So I would say congrats to him. "It's hard to explain what this means right now", Rahm told the Golf Channel.
Roma know the parameters of Liverpool's demands and they will evaluate in the coming hours if they will pursue a potential deal.
Sturridge has fallen down the pecking order at Liverpool during Jurgen Klopp's tenure in charge of the club, with even summer arrival Dominic Solanke now ahead of him.
Jürgen Klopp can not find a place Sturridge into his system at Liverpool, so it would make sense for the striker to spend the second half of the season at a club who will give him more game time, especially as there is a World Cup in the summer that Sturridge will be desperate to play in.
