In Focus: Sturridge should join Inter to revive his stagnating career

According to the BBC, Inter Milan have made an undisclosed loan offer for the services of Daniel Sturridge. The Englishman has been dismantled by Roberto Firmino as Liverpool’s starting striker, and it is believed that the Reds are considering the proposal presented by the Serie A club.

What’s the story?

Inter Milan have made a ‘significant but undisclosed’ offer for Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge. The 28-year-old has fallen out-of-favour at Liverpool given his history of incurring injuries, and also the impressive form of Firmino.

In fact, the former Chelsea striker has only made five starts for the Reds this season which is illustrative of his current insignificance to Liverpool.

While considering the fact that we’re in a World Cup year, and Sturridge’s status at Liverpool hardly constitutes ideal preparation, it’s believable to suggest that the English forward will be keen to depart in pursuit of regular first-team football.

Will Liverpool miss him?

Daniel Sturridge is irrefutably a talented player, yet his persistent injury concerns have negated his ability to thrive on a consistent basis. The Englishman has only scored ten goals in his previous 41 games for the club, and just five of those were scored in the Premier League.

To be truthful, Sturridge has regressed as a player due to his injury issues. He doesn’t possess the same explosive pace that characterised his performances in the earlier stages of his career. During the entirety of his career at Anfield, he has only managed to score ten league goals or more in two seasons.

Currently, Jurgen Klopp flaunts one of the most capable and destructive forward lines in Europe. Collectively, Mohamed Salah, Firmino and Sadio Mane have scored 34 league goals this season, which illustrates that Liverpool aren’t experiencing troubles in front of goal.

If Sturridge is eager to emulate the heights he achieved during the earlier parts of his career; then a loan move could be exceedingly useful.
