Liverpool open talks for Xherdan Shaqiri

Liverpool open talks for Xherdan Shaqiri

The Echo reports that Shaqiri would prefer a move to Liverpool and Stoke are hopeful that selling the Swiss global to the Reds would mean they would be more willing to loan out one of Harry Wilson and Sheyi Ojo.

With Switzerland back from the World Cup after being eliminated by Sweden in the Round of 16, negotiations can progress and Shaqiri "has been considering his options since his involvement in Russian Federation was ended".

Liverpool have opened talks with Stoke City over a potential transfer for Xherdan Shaqiri, a source has confirmed to ESPN FC.

Liverpool began monitoring Shaqiri earlier in the summer and they are now holding discussions with Stoke about a move for the 26-year-old. It does not necessarily represent the position of Liverpool Football Club.

Shaqiri was a major coup for Stoke when he signed from Inter in 2015, but despite moments of brilliance he has never shown his ability on a consistent basis in the Premier League.

Liverpool may be able to sweeten any deal by offering a player on loan.

His side take on League Two outfit Bury on Saturday before a midweek game against Blackburn Rovers. Shaqiri could be signed in time to play a part in that trip. A deal for the Lyon captain may yet be resurrected after France's World Cup campaign, however. They have no interest in the likes of Nick Pope, Jasper Cillessen, Thomas Strakosha and Jiri Pavlenka, all of whom have been linked of late.
