Liverpool are the latest to be linked with a move for Xherdan Shaqiri of Stoke City according to reports from the Guardian.
The Swiss international is part of the World Cup squad but is willing to move away from the relegated side and continue playing in the Premier League.
The report claims that the 26-year-old has a release clause in the range of £12m-£13.5m which can be activated since the club suffered relegation last season.
Liverpool fans were quick to jump on this rumour and here are some of the best reactions from Twitter. We believe Shaqiri can be a good backup option considering his skill sets – Pace and trickery which go hand in hand to the Klopp’s style of football.
Oh Bobby when you score like that 🎶
You make, Mané go mad 🎶

Wait… we can get Shaqiri for £12m and people are genuinely upset by it? He’s only 26, played everywhere, and can make moments of brilliance like this on the biggest stage. I’m absolutely behind it! pic.twitter.com/KPHjEppZGB

Shaqiri created more chances than anyone at Liverpool this season (Salah 1st with 59) and only the front 3 hit the back of the net more times.
Not bad for a cheap back-up option 👌🏻

As the LFC link to Shaqiri gains pace somewhere in a peaceful village in Portugal Simao Sabrosa looks at his phone anxiously anticipating a call from LFC to revive his dream move from 2007!

I have always been a fan of Xherdan Shaqiri from his Basel days. I’ll gladly welcome him to LFC as a back up. Guess some of you didn’t see our bench against Real Madrid

If Alexis Sanchez knew how to play football instead of the piano you’d have Xherdan Shaqiri. Sign him up Reds

We sold Ibe for £15m when he hadn’t even scored a PL goal and people wanna moan at us possibly getting Shaqiri for £12m lmao

If anyone thinks getting Shaqiri for as low as 12mil is a bad idea – you should go back in time to the Kiev final and recall our “options” off the bench

Genuine interest from #LFC in Xherdan Shaqiri, who would provide depth across the attacking positions. Danger from set-pieces, creative, can be decisive in the final third. Release clause of around £12 million makes it low risk.

Signing Moses Simon and Xherdan Shaqiri for a combined £22 million would be great business for #LFC. Strong backup for Mane and Salah.
