Inter Milan to recruit Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge on loan

Published by:

Inter Milan are the forerunners to recruit Daniel Sturridge on loan this month after making a formal proposal to secure the forward until the end of the season.

The Milan club has reportedly submitted a “serious” proposal to sign the 28-year-old until the end of the season, which includes a substantial loan fee, the full assumption of his salary and as well as a buying option.

Inter have also made it quite clear in their professional handling of matters that they are resolute in securing Sturridge’s services, which has encouraged the forward.

However, Sevilla has also put forth an enquiry regarding Sturridge’s availability but their interest is affected by their pursuit of Michy Batshuayi from Chelsea.

While there were indications that 24-year-old had seemed certain to switch to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan for the rest of the campaign, but the London club’s difficulty in the transfer market is hampering that move .

While Blues boss Antonio Conte would want to bring in striker Andy Carroll before letting the Belgium international level, the West Ham player has suffered an ankle injury which complicates any attempt for a move.

Sturridge has been handed just five starts for Liverpool this season, and following a muscle issue as well as illness he has not featured in a matchday squad since the Reds won 7-0 over Spartak Moscow on December 6.

The former Chelsea and Manchester City player is desperate to secure regular minutes in order to make England’s World Cup squad, with West Ham and Southampton also monitoring his situation.

Liverpool, initially unwilling to allow a loan move for Sturridge, placed a £30 million valuation on the marksman. However, this could change after having only received approaches over a temporary arrangement thus far, as the Merseysiders are looking to settle on the best deal for the club and player before the window closes.

Bayern Munich signs Kingsley Coman on permanent deal

FC Bayern Munich has reportedly triggered their option to sign Juventus loanee Kingsley Coman on a permanent basis.

Coman, 20, scored eight goals in 58 games for the Bundesliga champions, including one against Juventus last season that helped Bayern ease past the Italian champions in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

The Frenchman joined Bayern on a two-year loan deal in 2015, and, with the deal close to expiring this month, will sign on to the club in a permanent deal.

But even before going on to win the domestic treble with Bayern last season, Coman has already gathered a significant number of accolades which include league titles with Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus as well as finishing as runners-up at Euro 2016.

“He is a player with huge potential,” Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said of Coman. “Unfortunately he had problems following the European Championship and was injured for three months.”

“However, he has the talent and the potential to do great things. He is one of the players we are relying on in the future. We are convinced he will make his mark and that is why we have decided to sign him.”

Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti had already confirmed last November that the club intended to sign Coman on a permanent basis having secured an option to do that for €21 million on the loan deal. Juventus has also confirmed that the fee is to be paid in the 2017-18 and 2018-19 financial years.

“Coman’s future is with Bayern,” he said at the time. “We are all counting a lot on him. There’s no chance of him returning to Juve.”
