DANIEL STURRIDGE is at the centre of a transfer tug of war in the MLS, according to reports.
The former Liverpool striker is wanted by David Beckham’s side Inter Miami as well as rivals DC United.
Sturridge, 31, is a free agent after leaving Turkish team Trabzonspor last year.
And Daily Mail report that American sides Inter Miami and DC United are trying to sign the striker.
Sturridge had spells at Man City and Chelsea before making his mark with Liverpool.
He formed a lethal strike partnership with Luis Suarez before injuries thwarted his career.
The striker spent six years at Anfield before moving to Trabzonspor in 2019.
But the former England forward has been a free agent since March.
Franchise owner Beckham appointed Phil Neville as Inter Miami boss in January.
Left-back Kieran Gibbs has already agreed to join the MLS team in the summer.
Meanwhile, SunSport reported last month that hotshot Mitchell Curry is swapping Sunderland for America to join Beckham’s Inter Miami.
The 21-year-old striker is out of contract at the Stadium of Light in June but has sealed an early exit to head to the MLS.
Curry will initially link up with Inter’s B team Fort Lauderdale CF.
They compete in the USL League One, the third tier in the American football pyramid.
And that is where his development will be monitored closely by both the Manchester United legends over the upcoming campaign, which kicks-off next month.
Curry will be the second Englishman to arrive since Neville took charge ahead of the 2021 campaign – which kicks off next month.
Stoke City legend Ryan Shawcross has already landed at Inter as Goldenballs and P Nev look to mount a challenge for the Eastern Conference and seal a place in the MLS Cup play-offs.
