Liverpool FC should make room in their squad to sign Xherdan Shaqiri this summer, according to Chris Kamara.

The Reds have been linked with a host of attacking players in the summer transfer window as Jurgen Klopp looks to reinvest the funds raised by the sale of Philippe Coutinho to FC Barcelona in a £142m deal.

Liverpool FC were thought to be close to a deal to sign Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir before his proposed transfer fell through due to concerns over the France international’s niggling knee problem.

Shaqiri emerged as a surprise candidate to move to Liverpool FC as an alternative to Fekir following Stoke’s relegation to the Championship.

The former Inter Milan star scored eight goals in 36 games in the Premier League last term but the Swiss star couldn’t prevent the Potters from suffering relegation.

Stoke signed the 26-year-old in a £12m deal from Serie A side Inter Milan in 2015 and the Potters are thought to be eager to recoup that fee.

Sky Sports News pundit Kamara beleives Shaqiri would be a great addition to the Reds team.

“Shaqiri is a brilliant player, absolutely fantastic,” Kamara told the Daily Star.

“He would perform in a Liverpool team, that’s for sure. There is always room [in the team] for top-class players.

“You play so many games throughout the season and someone like Shaqiri would earn his stripes in terms of performances.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term to secure a spot in the Champions League.
