Liverpool agree £13.75m deal for Stoke star Xherdan Shaqiri

Shannon Reynolds | 13 July, 2018, 19:25

Shaqiri is due to undergo a medical on Friday and will provide competition for Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah while Alex Oxlade Chamberlain continues his recovery from ligament damage.

Liverpool are close to completing a deal to sign Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City, with the Swiss global set to have a medical today.

The 26-year-old scored eight times for Stoke last season and registered a further seven assists in the Premier League, but he was unable to help them avoid relegation to the second tier.

His last-minute victor against Serbia sent Switzerland through to the World Cup round of 16 before their campaign drew to a close with a defeat to Sweden.

Trump slams May's Brexit deal hours after dinner to honour him
Mrs May will host Mr Trump and his wife Melania at a lavish dinner at Blenheim Palace this evening. May and Trump are scheduled to hold talks and a joint news conference on Friday.

The Nigerian-born player has been lined up by the Potters as replacement for Switzerland star Xherdan Shaqiri who is set to join Champions League finalists Liverpool.

A wunderkind at Bayern Munich, destined for greatness at Inter Milan and then an under-achiever at Stoke City, could Jurgen Klopp's attacking dynamic be the key to unlocking Shaqiri's potential?

But it looks like Liverpool have finally got their hands on another attacker and as long as there are no late complications, Shaqiri will become Klopp's third summer signing following the arrivals of Naby Keita and Fabinho.
