Sturridge has been out of favour at Anfield since Jurgen Klopp took over and needs a fresh start to help save his World Cup dream.
There will be no shortage of suitors in his signature, and Betis' desire to lure him away from Liverpool is heightened by some devastating injury news of their own.
Top scorer Antonio Sanabria has suffered a knee injury, and has had to undergo surgery.
The Paraguayan had a fantastic start to the season, scoring a winner against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.
The 21-year-old had scored seven goals in 12 games and his absence leaves a big hole in Betis' squad.
Betis are in 11th place and need goals to start aiming upwards and avoid getting sucked into a relegation scrap - and Sturridge will have become an even bigger priority for them.
