The Magpies are struggling to reach an agreement with Feyenoord over their number one target Nicolai Jorgensen and are exploring their other options.
If Sturridge manages even half that total it will easily repay the £2million loan fee Liverpool have set - and Sturridge's £130,000 a week wages.
Sturridge had hoped that Sevilla would follow up an enquiry for his services with a formal proposal, but that did not happen as West Ham and then Newcastle both monitored the situation.
Newcastle submitted two offers for the Denmark global but Feyenoord are refusing to lower their £20m asking price.
Liverpool are understood to have lowered the asking price for striker Daniel Sturridge in order to secure the forward a move away from Anfield.
