West Ham eye Shaqiri bid, Liverpool fans react

Loads of Liverpool fans have been reacting to a surprising transfer rumour, as West Ham want to sign Xherdan Shaqiri for £22.5m.

According to The Daily Post, the Irons are eyeing Shaqiri as they prepare themselves for a busy summer.

Under the guidance of Manuel Pellegrini and Mario Husillos, the east-London outfit signed ten new players last summer, and will look to strengthen the squad again this term.

According to the report, the Reds have set a £22.5m asking price on the Swiss international after he fell down the pecking order in the second half of the season, and the Hammers are willing to stump up the cash.

However, many Reds are taking issue with the reports, wondering why the club would cash in on a player who added some much-needed attacking depth this season.

On the one hand, the club would be nearly doubling the £13m they paid for him last summer (BBC), but there is no point building a squad if you take it apart 12 months later.
