GETTYLiverpool transfer news Xherdan Shaqiri is in talks over an Anfield move
Liverpool are closing in on the signing of Stoke winger Xherdan Shaqiri.
A good World Cup for Switzerland means Shaqiri still has top clubs eyeing him in the window despite his less than stellar record at Stoke over the last couple of campaigns.
There is a release clause in his contract - understood to be around £13m - and Liverpool are discussing the details on that with the club.
The Switzerland global is keen to leave Stoke after their relegation from the Premier League and is reported to have a release clause in his contract, although the exact details of that remain unknown.
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.
Liverpool are confident that they will sign Swiss global Xherdan Shaqiri this summer, according to a report in The Guardian.
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool's potential move for Shaqiri and Stoke's interest in Wilson are not linked in the slightest. He admitted that he would like to leave following last season's relegation.
Despite some impressive displays for the Potters last season, Shaqiri was unable to help the club avoid the drop as Stoke slipped back down to the second tier of English football after a prolonged stay in the Premier League. Liverpool have been trying to reignite a deal despite a hands-off warning issued before the World Cup.
