Reds open talks to sign £13m Shaqiri from Stoke

Liverpool transfer news Xherdan Shaqiri Man Utd

Liverpool are in talks to sign Stoke's Switzerland midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri and could trigger his release clause, believed to be more than £13m.

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.

Shaqiri has also been linked with a move to Manchester United following an impressive World Cup, but it looks like Liverpool have stolen a march on their Premier League rivals.

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.

Gunners CONFIRM signing of Matteo Guendouzi
Guendouzi is Unai Emery's fifth signing as Arsenal manager following Lucas Torreira's arrival on Tuesday. The 19-year-old has joined the Gunners just a day after Uruguay worldwide Lucas Torreira signed for £25m.

Shaqiri scored eight times for Stoke last season and has made 92 appearances in total since joining from Inter in 2015.

Jurgen Klopp has identified the Switzerland worldwide as one who can bolster his attacking options, while the presence of a release clause in the 26-year-old's contract makes a deal a financially attractive one.

A move to Anfield would make Shaqiri the Reds' third signing of the summer following the arrival of midfielders Fabinho and Isaac Christie-Davies.

Shaqiri's career makes for impressive reading despite the recent relegation with Stoke, with stints at Bayern Munich and Inter Milan displaying the huge potential the 5'7 winger possessed earlier in his playing days. Fekir is now part of the French squad which have made it to the World Cup final.
