Liverpool are in line to secure the services of Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri after it was said that they have already placed a formal offer to lure him to the Premier League, Metro reports.
The 23-year-old is believed to be unhappy with his very limited role under Pep Guardiola and is keen to make a switch, also attracting interest Serie A duo Inter Milan and Juventus.
Brendan Rodgers is a long time admirer of the attacker and even tried to make a move to sign him during the summer, but after failed attempts, he is likely to try again this month.
With the two Italian clubs said to have only tabled a loan offer for the Swiss international, he is tipped for a move to Anfield as the Reds prepare a permanent move for his services.
Shaqiri started only three Bundesliga matches so far this season and should Bayern accept the move, he will likely have a larger role to play under Rodgers given the team’s poor start so far.
