Many Liverpool fans have been reacting to a transfer update from the Liverpool Echo as they have reported that Jurgen Klopp would prefer to keep Xherdan Shaqiri at the Merseyside club.
The Switzerland international has suffered from various injury problems since he joined the Anfield faithful from Stoke City, and thus has not featured much for them.
Should Liverpool sell Shaqiri?
Being 29 years of age now as well, it may be time for the Reds to cash in on him, given also that they have Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane as options in his position.
However, Shaqiri can also still offer moments of brilliance when he is called upon, as he has scored eight goals and made a further six assists in 46 games in all competitions over three consecutive terms (Transfermarkt). It is then perhaps no surprise that Klopp wants to keep the winger, having previously hailed his ‘massive impact‘ and revealing his relief that he stayed this past summer.
Liverpool fan reaction to Shaqiri news
These LFC supporters seemed split as to whether they should keep or sell Shaqiri, with one Red even labelling the winger as ‘class’:
Nah he has to go

Don’t see point keeping him tho he’s never available lol and when he is he either plays a game or comes on late in a game and then he’s out mysteriously for months

Shaqiri's class, we should keep him. We should sell Origi though, he's in really bad shape since last season https://t.co/H6Mac0y1Fb
