Liverpool sign Xherdan Shaqiri on five-year deal

Matt Le Tissier isn't fully convinced by Stoke City's Xherdan Shaqiri, as he reportedly edges closer to joining Liverpool.

Liverpool complete the signing of Switzerland worldwide midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City on a five-year deal.

The Swiss global winger is the Reds' third major purchase of the summer, and has penned a five-year deal at Anfield.

The 26-year-old scored eight goals and made seven assists in 36 Premier League games for the Potters last season but could not prevent them from dropping down to the Championship.

"I'm very happy to be here", he said.

And now, according to Telegraph Reds are reported to have agreed a transfer fee for Switzerland's world cup hero, Xherden Shaqiri and the Swiss global is set to undergo medical on Friday.

Chelsea part ways with Conte
Chelsea began a terse, four-sentence statement on its website, " Chelsea Football Club and Antonio Conte have parted company". The 48-year-old Italian, who returned to pre-season training this week, had one year remaining on his contract.

"I think the English phrase to explain the decision to sign Xherdan is a "no-brainer", Klopp told Liverpool's official website.

"He has speed and ability, has the right amount of arrogance on the football pitch, real bravery to want the ball and influence things".

"It's a huge club with big history, big players and a fantastic coach". I'm really happy that now I'm finally here.

Naby Keita and Fabinho arrived on Merseyside earlier this summer to boost Jurgen Klopp's midfield options and Shaqiri provides support for Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in attack.

Shaqiri, formerly of Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, will wear the No 23 shirt for the Reds and has been welcomed to the club by his new manager Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool were the frontrunners for his signature for some time having been interested in signing Shaqiri a few years back.
