Merseyside club Liverpool are closing in on another midfield signing with a £15 million deal for Bayern Munich playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri on the cards, reports the Daily Star.
The 22-year old Swiss international usually prefers to play on the right wing, but can be fielded in any midfield role behind the main striker, and is being lined up by Kop boss Brendan Rodgers as the Reds’ third signing of the summer.
Rodgers feels the need to strengthen his side immensely before going into the Champions League next season, and Shaqiri could be seen as the ideal replacement for Liverpool’s flop £7.5 million signing from last summer, Iago Aspas.
The former Basel starlet recently confirmed that he could leave Bayern Munich if he is not made a regular feature in the side by Spanish boss Pep Guardiola, and is therefore set for a move to Liverpool where he could get himself more game time.
