Stoke City attacker Xherdan Shaqiri has been a regular feature within the transfer gossip pages over the last few weeks, but Liverpool have not been mentioned as possible suitors.
According to The Mirror, Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur are leading the charge for the Switzerland international’s signature.
The publication claims that the 26-year-old, who has earned 68 caps for his country, has a £12m release clause in his contract.
The newspaper also carries quotes from Shaqiri claiming that he intends to leave Stoke and would prefer to stay in the Premier League.
Liverpool have not emerged as contenders for the attacker’s signature, but should they join the race?
It would be difficult for any player to break up the forward dynamic of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.
Shaqiri predominantly plays on the right wing, but he has also featured on the left, as well as behind the striker.
The Swiss player scored eight goals in 36 Premier League games during Stoke’s ill-fated campaign, which ended in relegation.
Given the fact that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp needs more depth in his squad, would Shaqiri be a good option?
