‘Perfect impact player’, ‘Bargain’ – A lot Liverpool fans want to get this deal tied up ASAP

The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been using the World Cup to evaluate this summer’s transfer targets, with Xherdan Shaqiri often on display. Yesterday, the Stoke man played his last World Cup game for another four years when his Swiss side was bombed out of the tournament by a plucky Sweden.

The Liverpool fans propping our bar up have been looking at the prospect of bringing in Shaqiri for some time now. Stoke City were relegated last season and the Swiss winger has been vocal when discussing his future, almost everyone knows the 26-year-old will be moving on from the Brittania Stadium and with Anfield one of the prime destinations for him, it will be an interesting saga to see if he joins the Kop.

The winger has the ability to turn a game on its head. Some of his career accolades already include scoring the goal of the tournament at Euro 2016, winning a treble with Bayern Munich and claiming two domestic doubles for his boyhood club Basel. With this portfolio of trophies and achievements, it will be a surprise if no one comes in for the ex-Inter Milan and Bayern Munich star, especially at the cut-price £12 million tag that is being quoted.

Whilst work rate might be an issue, the Liverpool fans in the Tavern love a bargain and Shaqiri is just that.
