Swiss international closes in on £15m Liverpool switch

Xherdan Shaqiri The rumours surrounding Luis Suarez going to Real Madrid are still in full swing but Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are trying to ignore it.

Instead they are concentrating on who could be coming in with the Daily Star today revealing that the Merseyside club are close to signing a Switzerland international.

Xherdan Shaqiri revealed last month that he was ready to quit Bayern Munich after failing to nail down a regular first team place.

Liverpool are now ready to tempt the Bundesliga champions with a £15 million deal.

The 22-year-old, who has been capped 32 times by Switzerland, had previously been tipped for a move to Manchester United but it now looks like Brendan Rodgers has taken the initiative.

He is likely to join Emre Can and Rickie Lambert at Anfield after an agreement for the former star was revealed this week while the latter is now officially a Reds player.

Liverpool fans. Xherdan Shaqiri looks like being the third player in at the club this summer. But is it time Brendan Rodgers paid attention to the defence? After all, it was your defensive record that lost you the title. Let us know your thoughts below.
