Media in England are suggesting all that is left for Inter Milan to secure the services of Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is the approval of the player.

The International Business Times and Daily and Sunday Express have both reported that the Nerazzurri have tendered an offer to Liverpool to bring Sturridge to the San Siro on loan for the remainder of the season.

The IBT reported Inter made a “significant but undisclosed” offer to Liverpool with Inter also paying Sturridge’s wages for the rest of the season. According to the Liverpool Echo, the club has a price tag on Sturridge of around £30 million, but understand that might be a tough get for a player who has not featured all season.

The Echo also reported Sturridge’s weekly wages are about £120,000.

Since January 2013, Sturridge has played in 133 matches for Liverpool and has scored 63 goals in those appearances. He last played in Liverpool’s 7-0 win over Spartak Moscow in December. He played for approximately 19 minutes in the game. He did not travel to Swansea in Liverpool’s loss Monday night.

Inter Milan is also willing to discuss making the transfer permanent at the end of the season, should he impress at the San Siro, according to numerous reports.

Sturridge has sought more playing time since injuries have cut his previous two seasons short. It is believed Sturridge, when healthy, would provide yet another attacking option for Luciano Spalletti in place of Joao Mario – who is linked with a move to West Ham United.
