Sevilla approach Liverpool over Daniel Sturridge loan move

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is a target for Sevilla, and the Spanish club have reportedly made contact with the Reds over a move.

Sturridge has been behind Roberto Firmino for a centre-forward spot this season, while even Dominic Solanke—still without a goal for the Reds—has been preferred at times.

The No. 15 has missed the last nine matches with injury and the Reds have not shown too many signs of missing him, roaring to a five-match win streak of late and scoring 15 goals in the process.

Inter Milan have previously been rumoured to want Sturridge for the remainder of the season, while Premier League clubs including West Ham have also been mentioned.

Now Sky Sports report Spanish side Sevilla want to take the England international on loan until the end of the campaign—though no official bid has been made yet.

Liverpool are thought to want a permanent move over a loan deal if Sturridge is to depart Anfield this month.

The striker has played only around 500 minutes this term, scoring three goals, the most recent of which came against Maribor on November 1.

It continues a downturn in fortunes for Sturridge, who had such an exciting and explosive start to his Liverpool career—but which could end in a disappointing fade-away.

The Reds could be left somewhat short in attack if he does indeed depart, following Philippe Coutinho‘s sale to Barcelona, but Sturridge wants more game time in the second half of the campaign to win himself a World Cup spot with England.

A permanent move might be best for all parties, but the Reds have yet to see any willing suitors come forward to match their demands.
