In an exclusive interview with The Transfer Tavern, Dean Windass, who made 402 appearances during his career, has claimed that Wolves could be an appealing option for Xherdan Shaqiri, who is set to leave Liverpool this summer.
Should Wolves sign Shaqiri?
The Switzerland international has never been a regular at Anfield as he has failed to prove his worth ahead of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota so as a result, he has made just 44 league appearances.
Speaking on why Shaqiri could be a good player for Wolves and how he may see Wolves as an ideal club for him to join, Windass exclusively told The Transfer Tavern:
“He’s a Wolves type of player as he is technically very good but he has found it very difficult at Liverpool to get a regular spot, but don’t get me wrong he’s a quality footballer so I could see him fitting in well at Wolves.
“Nuno would be a big pull for him as he would put his arm over his shoulder and tell him he will start every week. I think they’ll invest next year and that could be quite a good signing for them.”
The 29-year old has played for some of Europe’s top clubs such as Bayern Munich and Inter Milan before he joined Mark Hughes at Stoke in 2015.
Wolves will be looking to improve their attacking force next season with the injury to Pedro Neto ruling him out for several months, and the hole left by Jota still visible.
