Like the majority of us, it looks like Liverpool have well and truly taken notice of Xherdan Shaqiri’s exploits at the World Cup. The stocky Swiss attacker made a slow start to the tournament, but since his opening performance he has really risen to the occasion. After impressing in the defeat to France he smashed in a stunning hat-trick against lowly Honduras last night to ensure that his nation will be in the tournament’s last 16 – something England cannot boast.

Reports today suggest that the 22-year-old has agreed a £95,000-per-week contract at Anfield after growing frustrated with a lack of playing time at Bayern Munich and that a fee of around £15m-£20m is likely to quickly settled for his services.

The potential move may well spell the end of Liverpool’s interest in Adam Lallana, but it is by no means a statement that the Merseysiders’ doors are now closed for the summer. Brendan Rodgers is known to be chasing a number of players to bolster his side for Champions League football, and here are six that might follow Shaqiri in the next few months…
