Xherdan Shaqiri favours a move to Liverpool FC in the summer transfer window, according to a report in England.

The Liverpool Echo is reporting that the Reds have made an approach to sign the Switzerland international in the summer transfer window.

The same article states that the 26-year-old Stoke playmaker has a contract release clause in the region of £13m.

According to the same story, Shaqiri has been weighing up his options since Switzerland’s exit at the World Cup following a round of 16 loss.

Stoke are hopeful that doing business with Liverpool FC with regards to their star man Shaqiri could see the Reds send some of their talented youngsters to the Championship side for the 2018-19 season.

The former Inter Milan winger scored eight times in 34 games in the Premier League last season but the Swiss starlet was unable to help the Potters avoid relegation to the second tier of English football.

Liverpool FC signed Brazil international Fabinho in a £39m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco at the start of the summer transfer window.

RB Leipzig star Naby Keita finally completed his switch to Liverpool FC after the Reds agreed a £48m transfer fee with the Bundesliga club last summer.
