Getting the feeling the fact that Klopp is willing to sell but reluctant to do a loan deal, suggests Klopp has a replacement in mind for January if sold.

Joyce tweeted today that Inter Milan are now interested in Sturridge. Would rather get some hard cash for him, with Italians it must be some kind of loan and optional fee.
Just out of interest, gauging the forums here....but am I the only person that notices stereotypical racism/typecasting in all transfer posts about Italian clubs and no one gives a hoot.

Replace Italian with Jewish, and watch the bans fly in, replace it with African....and...well....

Just asking the forums....because despite our pathetic ( post rush, pre Salah mind you) dealings with Italian clubs, they have certainly spent their fair share of money in world football historically.....you can’t blame them for taking advantage of our weak management

I look at that and assume he's talking about the clubs in Italy and how they're run rather than any kind of disrespect to a nationality,but that's just me.

No, this is not racism or any form of prejudice. It is merely acknowledging the era of austerity that has defined the last 10 years or so of Italian football and the sort of one sided deals their clubs have been forced into being good at finding. Their richest club is in genuine risk of going into insolvency and their best side has recreated itself on exactly the sort of deals we are weary about, having been burned on them with Italian clubs in the recent past.

Could be just you, yes. Maybe it takes a similarly-minded person to get that impression out of Icebreaker's post?

Inter want him on loan as they can't afford the transfer fee. That's fine well just use him as a £30m deposit on a certain argentine player weve been eyeing...

Sturridge is prob the best England finisher and should move on to boost his chances of playing for England at the WC, but with his injury record i don,t think we will get 30 mill for him. But teams like Saints, West Ham, Newcastle need a goalscorer

We should monitor Carroll situation at West Ham. I still find it unbelievable that Chelsea would go for him, but if they do West Ham will be looking for a striker. With Walcott gone to Everton, there aren't many proven Premiership strikers around. He should do well there, they have some good players and solid manager.

I thought they rejected Inter's and Sevilla's loan offers? Not sure he'd start for either, though...

Ugh, no more loan shit. It's the worst of both worlds when it comes to players we eventually want out.

You're not getting any funds in for players you want. You know the issue of whether he stays or goes permanently will linger once the loan move has ended. And you can't use the bloody player in the emergency situations.

The only positive is the wages.

From the bits and pieces I've been told they seem to have rejected Inter's initial offer as they wanted us to help with his wages, and now Inter are willing to pay them all.

Daniel Sturridge is on a list of strikers Newcastle want to sign on loan during this window, Sky Sports News understands.

The other names on the list include his Liverpool team-mate Danny Ings and West Ham striker Diafra Sakho.

Italian broadcaster Sport Mediaset believe Liverpool are willing to loan Daniel Sturridge out-with one particular condition.

According to the Italians- how they know this is anyone’s guess- Liverpool will only consider a loan deal if an obligatory transfer purchase option is included.

I would love to know how an "obligatory option" would work for both sides.

Its clear Liverpool would rather a sale than a loan deal, but if its a loan deal they want a commitment to buy at the end of the loan. I imagine none of these clubs want to commit to that based on Sturridge injury record, be interesting to see if someone takes the gamble, or Liverpool ease on those demands.

Don't mind selling him cheap if it's to teams abroad. He might also be able to prolong his career if he were to leave for Italian or Spanish clubs. Not as demanding physically and could work on his finishing again. This league is way too tough and taxing him physically.... he can't do it anymore, especially not the way we play these days, breakneck speed almost from the get go.

If DS can pass a medical, I'd be very tempted to sell him quickly. No telling what state he'll be in in a foreign country with a foreign coaching team, a foreign language and foreign physios. Compulsory purchase that includes every medical condition known to man (and any that currently have not been discovered) sounds very sensible to me.

Didn't Inter receive a slice of the Coutinho money ? Probably funding any move for Sturridge with that.....
