Inter Milan and Sevilla are interested in signing Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge this transfer window, a source has told ESPN FC.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Liverpool would be open to selling Sturridge this window, but only if the offer is in line with the Merseyside club's demands.

Sturridge has made just five starts in all competitions this season as he looks to earn a place in England's World Cup squad this summer.

Sevilla and Inter have both registered their interest in the 28-year-old to Liverpool, the source said.

Sturridge has not been part of the matchday squad for Liverpool's last nine games, having suffered from illness and muscular injuries.

Reports in Italy claim Inter would prefer a straight loan deal, which would enable them to strengthen their attack for the second half of the campaign and assess whether or not Sturridge could be a long-term option for them.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have allowed Marko Grujic to join Championship side Cardiff City on loan till the end of the season.

A number of Premier League sides were interested in the 21-year-old, but Liverpool's decision on where to loan out the Serbia international was based upon where he would receive the most regular game-time.

"This is a good opportunity for me, to play in a club that will be fighting until the end to get in to the Premier League," Grujic said.

"To work with a manager like Neil Warnock is something I'm looking forward to. I've heard good things about him and when he spoke to me he said some good things about me and that I had a chance to play as part of his squad."
