Liverpool are in talks to sign Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City.
The Reds’ could activate the Swiss star’s £13.5 million release clause from newly relegated Stoke City in order to secure his services at Anfield.
The winger scored eight goals for newly relegated Stoke City last season and was the Potters’ stand out player.
The 26-year-old has said it is ‘no secret’ that he will be leaving Stoke this summer as he wishes to remain a premier league player.
Should the deal happen, it will make Shaqiri Jurgen Klopp’s third signing in this window following the arrival of Fabinho from Monaco, Isaac Christie-Davies from Chelsea and Naby Keita from RB Leipzig.
Shaqiri joined Stoke in 2015 from Inter Milan for a club record fee of £12 million. The tricky winger then went on to make 84 league appearances for the club.
Negotiations have started for Shaqiri to move to Merseyside and Klopp is hopeful that he will be a Liverpool player before they embark on their pre-season tour of the United States on July 22.
The Swiss’ contract at Stoke runs out in 2020.
