Liverpool are a team that needs further improvement this summer. The Reds did well in the Premier League last season, and their run to the Champions League final was memorable, but in the end, they finished the season trophyless – and that’s not good enough.
Fortunately for the Anfield faithful, the club are already making transfer moves to prevent that happening again next season. Fabinho has already signed, and an article from the Independent last week intimated that a deal for Stoke City star Xherdan Shaqiri would be tied up in the coming weeks.
In light of that news, we asked fans whether they expect Shaqiri, who is rated at £16.2 million by Transfer Markt, to join the club, and it’s fair to say that fans are very optimistic.
A whopping 83% of polled Liverpool fans have revealed that they expect to see Shaqiri playing for the club next season, with just 17% not convinced on the matter.
Of course, Stoke City were relegated last season, and so it wouldn’t be a surprise for Shaqiri to seek a way out. Nonetheless, until a deal is done you can never be sure – though that doesn’t seem to be bothering fans.
Indeed, they seem convinced that the exciting Swiss winger is on his way, and so optimism is clearly still very high at the club.
