Liverpool’s Sturridge possible Dzeko replacement

Edin Dzeko is nearing a move to Chelsea, as Roma and the English side are discussing bonuses linked to the operation, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

For a substitute, the Giallorossi are eyeing Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge. The Red are asking for €2 million for the loan of the player and between €20-€30 million for the option to buy. Liverpool don’t appear ready to offer a free loan for the player and have already discussed the player with Inter. With Dzeko coming closer to departing, Sturridge could be brought in.
