Liverpool close in on Xherdan Shaqiri as negotiations begin with Stoke

Liverpool transfer news Xherdan Shaqiri Man Utd

Liverpool reportedly begin official talks with Stoke City over a move for Switzerland global midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri.

A good World Cup for Switzerland means Shaqiri still has top clubs eyeing him in the window despite his less than stellar record at Stoke over the last couple of campaigns.

Following Stoke's relegation to the Championship, the 26-year-old expressed a desire to remain in the Premier League, recently stating it is "no secret" he will leave the bet365 Stadium.

Now, Pearce writes that talks have been opened with Stoke as Liverpool look to capitalise on the Potters being relegated last season.

Of the assets he's seeking to acquire from Fox, Disney chief executive officer Bob Iger called Sky "a real crown jewel". Present in 23 million homes across Europe, Sky is a prized asset, with a slate of top sport and original drama content.

The Echo reports that Shaqiri would prefer a move to Liverpool and Stoke are hopeful that selling the Swiss worldwide to the Reds would mean they would be more willing to loan out one of Harry Wilson and Sheyi Ojo.

Shaqiri's whose contract at the Potters runs until 2020, scored 15 goals in 92 appearances for the club over three seasons.

Liverpool have already strengthened their squad this summer with the £39m signing of Monaco midfielder Fabinho and the arrival of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig. Liverpool have been trying to reignite a deal despite a hands-off warning issued before the World Cup.
