Shaqiri has made clear he wants to leave Stoke following their relegation to the Championship and new manager Gary Rowett insisted he will not stand in the way of any player who wanted to leave. "It's the best league with the best players, but I do not want to exclude anything".

Shaqiri, a winger who was impressive with Stoke despite their relegation, is an attractive prospect given his release clause of around £12-14 million.

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

But speaking to Swiss outlet Blick Sport while on global duty with the national team, Shaqiri was asked about the rumours surrounding his future.

Over the weekend, he told Blick: "The Anfield stadium is great, definitely".

Liverpool have begun talks with representatives of Stoke star Xherdan Shaqiri.

"My agents take care of my future".

Told that it has been reported he is close to joining the Reds, Shaqiri said: "I can't tell you anything right now".

"I am focusing on the national team right now".

They've also been strongly linked with Nabil Fekir in recent weeks but the Mirror claim that any potential deal for Shaqiri isn't linked with their interest in the Lyon attacker so Klopp is seemingly on the look out for two attackers. "He has played in the top divisions in Portugal and Spain and, of course, he's heading into the World Cup with Nigeria which will be an unbelievable experience for him".

Switzerland are in a group with Brazil, Serbia and Costa Rica and kick off their campaign against the five-time winners on Sunday June 17.
