Judging by the media reports in recent weeks, anyone would be forgiven for believing that Xherdan Shaqiri will be Liverpool’s next signing.
Of course, that could end up being the case, but the Liverpool Echo reported on Thursday evening that the Reds are yet to make an official approach for the Stoke City winger.
There is expected to be a scramble for the Switzerland international’s signature due to a release clause that makes him available for around £13.5m, according to the Merseyside publication.
With that being said, if Jurgen Klopp wants Shaqiri to be part of his squad this season then the club should move swiftly.

Now that Switzerland are no longer in the World Cup, the winger is expected to focus on his future, and it is unlikely to be with the Potters considering that they were relegated from the Premier League last season.
Shaqiri may not be a marquee signing for Liverpool, but he would certainly be another option to use, possibly off the bench, in attack.
In order for the Reds to cope with the demands of the campaign, they require strength in depth, and the Swiss winger would provide that.
This latest news about the 26-year-old, who scored eight goals and created seven assists in 36 league outings for Stoke last season, has sparked a discussion among Liverpool fans on Reddit.
