Liverpool fans react to the signing of Xherdan Shaqiri

It has been no secret for months now than Liverpool need greater attacking depth; Danny Ings and Dominic Solanke are not suitable replacements for Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino if the Reds have genuine title ambitions.

Jurgen Klopp has moved to rectify that deficiency with a cut-price £13m deal for Swiss international wideman Xherdan Shaqiri following a World Cup campaign that again saw him impress.

The winger did his utmost to drag Stoke away from the relegation zone last time around but was ultimately the only player with any flair and creativity as his quality proved to be insufficient to counter-balance a dressing room with a poor collective attitude.

However, there are question marks over Shaqiri’s own willingness to roll up his sleeves, and it remains to be seen how he will fit into Jurgen Klopp’s high-tempo style.

Nevertheless, Liverpool fans seem excited about having high-quality cover and we’ve taken a closer look at the best of their reaction…

We have title challenging team now
