But they can take their mind off that saga for a little while at least as they look through the latest offering from Metro.
Because according to them, Liverpool are on the verge of signing Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri who scored a fine hat-trick against Honduras yesterday evening.
The Switzerland international, who has been immensely impressive this World Cup, is set to sign a five-year deal worth £95,000 per week at Anfield.
He has become the Merseyside club’s number one transfer target this summer after talks to lure Southampton midfielder Adam Lallana to the club hit a brick wall.
Shaqiri, 22, made it clear earlier in the season that he wanted out of the Allianz Arena outfit after falling down the pecking order with the Bavarian giants.
And it now seems that Liverpool will add the impressive former FC Basel youngster to their ranks.
Liverpool fans. Xherdan Shaqiri looks like a proper talent but do you still need Adam Lallana as well? Let us know your thoughts below.
