Xherdan Shaqiri has insisted that his agents will take care of his future as he continues to be linked with a move to Liverpool FC this summer.

The Switzerland international has been strongly touted as a possible target for the Reds in recent days as Jurgen Klopp looks to strengthen his squad at Anfield ahead of next season.

It is believed that the attacker will be available for a transfer fee of just £12m this summer due to a release clause in his contract following Stoke City’s relegation from the Premier League.

However, there is yet to be any official confirmation of a transfer for the 26-year-old despite the speculation.

And Shaqiri refused to be drawn into discussing a move to Anfield during a recent interview while on international duty with Switzerland.

Pressed on his future, Shaqiri told Blick: “I can’t tell you anything right now.

“I think my agents take care of my future. I’m focusing on the national team right now.”

Liverpool FC have already completed the signing of Brazilian midfielder Fabinho this summer from Monaco as Klopp looks to build a team capable of winning the Premier League next season.

The Reds finished fourth and without a trophy last term after losing the Champions League final to Real Madrid.
