Liverpool open Xherdan Shaqiri transfer negotiations with Stoke City

Liverpool transfer news Xherdan Shaqiri Man Utd

Liverpool are confident that they will sign Swiss worldwide Xherdan Shaqiri this summer, according to a report in The Guardian.

The Echo reports that Shaqiri would prefer a move to Liverpool and Stoke are hopeful that selling the Swiss worldwide to the Reds would mean they would be more willing to loan out one of Harry Wilson and Sheyi Ojo.

Jurgen Klopp has been eyeing Shaqiri as a potential acquisition since before the World Cup and he is now prepared to make his move to trigger the release clause embedded in the Swiss winger's contract. It does not necessarily represent the position of Liverpool Football Club.

Similarly, in August a year ago , six people were arrested for taking Zumba classes at a public square in Tehran. Since 2017, FATA has arrested many women charged with publishing un-Islamic photos and videos on social media.

Klopp's side reached the Champions League final last season but finished a distant 25 points behind record breaking champions Manchester City.

Shaqiri was a major coup for Stoke when he signed from Inter in 2015, but despite moments of brilliance he has never shown his ability on a consistent basis in the Premier League.

Shaqiri is now on holiday after participating in the World Cup and recently said his future would soon be resolved as he expressed his desire to continue playing in the Premier League. He admitted that he would like to leave following last season's relegation. Liverpool saw a deal for Lyon captain Nabil Fekir break down due to a medical issue last month, but serious alternatives are yet to emerge amid claims from the player's agent that the move remains on the table.
