Xherdan Shaqiri has underlined his desire to help Liverpool FC challenge for major trophies next season.

The Switzerland international became Liverpool FC’s second official signing of the summer transfer window on Friday when he agreed to move to the Merseyside outfit from Stoke City.

The 26-year-old will be hoping to challenge for a spot in the first team at Anfield next term as he looks to line up alongside the likes of Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino in Liverpool FC’s attack.

The Reds endured another trophyless campaign last season as they finished fourth in the Premier League table and reached the Champions League final under Jurgen Klopp last term.

Indeed, the Merseyside outfit are still on the lookout for their first major trophy since Klopp’s appointment at Anfield back in 2015.

Shaqiri has now set his sights on helping the Reds end their wait for silverware next season, and he insists that he has the experience needed to do so.

Speaking in an interview with Liverpool FC’s website, Shaqiri said: “I want to win titles – that’s my ambition.

“I already know how to win from Bayern Munich, we won the treble and it was an amazing feeling.

“I’m confident we can win a lot of titles. The fans deserve to win titles. Hopefully we have a good season and try to be hungry to win titles.”

Liverpool FC are believed to be on the lookout for a number of other signings this summer as they look to build a squad capable of challenging for the title next season.
