Liverpool Expect To Sign Xherdan Shaqiri In Next Two Weeks

Liverpool transfer news Xherdan Shaqiri Man Utd

LIVERPOOL are in discussions with Stoke about a deal for winger Xherdan Shaqiri.

Jürgen Klopp is making his move to sign Shaqiri and wants to trigger his release clause, which is understood to be over £13 million, this month.

Now, Pearce writes that talks have been opened with Stoke as Liverpool look to capitalise on the Potters being relegated last season.

Liverpool have already bolstered their midfield options this summer with Naby Keita and Fabinho, for £52.75m from Red Bull Leipzig and £43.7m from Monaco respectively, and had lined up a £53m move for Nabil Fekir until a medical raised concerns.

Shaqiri would not be seen as someone to come in and start games immediately, though Klopp appreciates the importance of depth across his attacking positions. He admitted that he would like to leave following last season's relegation.

But Parliament would oversee the UK's trade policy and have the ability to "choose" to diverge from the European Union rules. An EU source said: "We will look at these things constructively, and in a way that is helpful to the prime minister".

Shaqiri was among Switzerland's best players in their run to the last 16 of the World Cup, scoring a late victor in their only victory, against Serbia.

Shaqiri joined Stoke in 2015 from Inter Milan before going on to make 84 league appearances for the club.

The players being discussed include Ben Woodburn, Harry Wilson and Sheyi Ojo.

They could have him in place to travel to the U.S. where they will play Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City and Manchester United later this month.

Barnsey too is excited at the idea, calling it an "excellent" signing for the club.
