Everton fans urge club to sign Xherdan Shaqiri after brilliant Switzerland display

Stoke City forward Xherdan Shaqiri impressed and scored a brilliant goal in Switzerland’s crucial 2-1 World Cup win against Serbia on Friday night, and Everton fans have urged their club to sign the 26-year-old ace.

The Potters winger looks set to leave the Britannia Stadium this summer following his side’s relegation to the Championship last term, and according to The Mirror he has a £12m release clause in his contract after they suffered the drop.

The former Bayern Munich and Inter Milan man started on the right-hand side for his country in Kaliningrad, and as well as proving to be influential in the final third and being incredibly unlucky not to score with a curling effort that hit the woodwork, he then netted the winning goal for his nation as he ran from the halfway line and produced a composed finish late on.

Everton supporters, who have urged their club to sign another potential Gylfi Sigurdsson replacement in £22.5m World Cup attacking midfielder, were quick to have their say on Shaqiri’s latest display via social media, and while one said “the guy is exactly what the club desperately needs”, another described him as “better than Gylfi”.
