Spurs working on ambitious transfer deal.
Tottenham Hotspur look set to rival Liverpool for the signing of Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri this January, according to the Metro.
The talented Swiss international has been linked with an exit from the Allianz Arena for some time now after struggling to make an impression on the club’s first-team on a regular basis.
Liverpool had looked the favourites to sign him during the summer, but Tottenham now look set to launch a £19.6m bid to bring him to White Hart Lane this winter.
The 23-year-old can play a variety of attacking midfield roles and would add some much-needed quality to Spurs’ attack after a poor start to the season.
