Newcastle have joined the race to sign Daniel Sturridge and are looking to give the striker a platform to revive his career.

The England international is anxious to leave Anfield before Wednesday's deadline and has been the subject of interest from Sevilla and Inter Milan.

Sevilla had an offer to pay all of Sturridge's £130,000 per week wages until the end of the season rejected, while Inter Milan had been prepared to pay a £2million loan fee to take him to Serie A but are now pursuing Javier Pastore of Paris Saint-Germain.

Newcastle, however, have now emerged as the leading candidates to take Sturridge away from Anfield, with Rafa Benitez desperate to bring in a goalscorer to boost his side's hopes of staying in the Premier League.

Benitez has seen goals hard to come by, with their current total of 22 in 24 games one of the lowest in the Premier League.

Sturridge has not played for Liverpool since coming on as substitute in the 7-0 routing of Spartak Moscow on December 6, with a series of niggling injuries and the form of Roberto Firmino leaving him on the periphery.

He realises at this moment in time he will not be going to the World Cup if his position remains the same and wants to kick-start his career after what has been a hugely frustrating season.

Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool's manager, made it clear before his side were knocked out of the FA Cup by West Brom that he was not prepared to offer any assurances to Sturridge over what game time he might receive should he remain on Merseyside beyond the deadline.

Klopp said on Friday: 'I have never in my life promised a player game time for the next few months. It is not possible. We have mentioned all the things like it was so far. When Daniel is fit, training and in shape, he is still an outstanding striker — there is no doubt about that. But he did not play the last few weeks — for different reasons.

'Of course one of them was Roberto Firmino's performance, then Dom Solanke's development. And Daniel in and out of training. In general more in than out in training, but the time he was in he was a little unlucky with games.'
