Shaqiri on brink of sealing Liverpool switch

Shaqiri on brink of sealing Liverpool switch

The Switzerland global had been on holiday after helping his country reach the last-16 of the World Cup but he broke off to complete a medical at Melwood on Friday.

Do you think Shaqiri will be a good signing for Liverpool?

Liverpool, certainly, is ahead of any other Premier League sides in the transfer market as the Merseysiders already have clinched the signatures of highly rated midfield pair Naby Keita and Fabinho.

Following Stoke's relegation to the Championship, the 26-year-old expressed a desire to remain in Premier League and recently stated it is "no secret" he will leave the bet365 Stadium.

Xherdan Shaqiri looks set to become a Liverpool player this weekend, with strong reports of a medical due for Friday.


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

Shaqiri is believed to be keen on a move to Anfield but could be offered the chance to return to Italy.

'We are the ideal move for him in this moment as well I think, because he needs to push himself and challenge himself and our environment encourages that.

'I'm very happy to be here, ' Shaqiri said. So I'm really glad and happy to be here. He gives us greater flexibility in how we can use our current players also.

The former Basel star has played for Bayern Munich and Inter Milan so he has plenty of experience of top level football and he'll provide competition for the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in attack this coming season. I'm really happy that now I'm finally here.
