Inter and Sevilla interested in Sturridge


By Robert Jones

Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge is being chased by European giants Internazionale and Sevilla, although the player may leave on loan rather than permanently.

Sturridge is surplus to requirements at Anfield and has made only nine Premier League appearances this season.

Meanwhile, Reds youngster Ben Woodburn will not be moving to Sunderland on loan.

Black Cats manager Chris Coleman had been keen on reuniting with the young forward, who he worked with while manager of Wales. Coleman handed the 18-year-old his debut in a World Cup qualifier against Austria and was rewarded when Woodburn scored with a 25-yard wonder strike to win the game.

The goal saw Woodburn become his country's second-youngest ever goal-scorer, behind only Gareth Bale.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp - whose side visit Swansea on Monday night - decided against allowing the player to leave Anfield in light of Philippe Coutinho's move to Barcelona.

Meanwhile, Stoke boss Paul Lambert has indicated he will add further signings to his loan capture of Augsburg and Greece left-back Kostas Stafylidis.
