Euro Giants Confident Deal With Liverpool For €40m Star Will Be Completed, Fenerbahce Also In Race

Inter Milan are confident they will be able to strike a deal with Liverpool over the transfer of Daniel Sturridge according to Sky in Italy.

The Serie A giants want the England international on loan, with an option to buy, but are not willing to pay the Reds €40m valuation to make the transfer permanent.

Sturridge does have 18 months on his contract but has not played since early December because of a thigh injury.

The 28-year-old is considering leaving Liverpool for more playing time to improve his changes of making the England squad ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Sturridge has also received interest from Turkey.

Fenerbahce also want Sturridge on loan according to the Aksam newspaper.

Octagon’s Turkish agent Hasan Anıl Eken who represents Sturridge’s rights in Turkey revealed his client would be open to a Turkey move.

Eken said: “If the circumstances are right and the fans want him Sturridge would play in Turkey.”

Sturridge would be almost guaranteed a first-team role were he to make the move.

Fenerbahce are facing a striker crisis with on loan Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen injured and Roberto Soldado misfiring.

The Yellow Canaries wage bill has been significantly reduced following the departure of Robin van Persie.

The former Arsenal and Manchester United man was paid €4.9 million per-season.

Fenerbahce are planning to reinvest the wages in a new forward as the current forwards have struggled for goals.

The Istanbul giants are currently just three points behind league leaders Basaksehir.
