Shaqiri cut short his holiday and flew into Merseyside last night. Medical is now underway. #LFC

Shaqiri had been linked with a move away from the relegated Stoke City but no deal was conducted since the player was away with the national side at the World Cup.
The 26-year-old would certainly be a great addition to the side as he could be an X-Factor for us in the coming season. Shaqiri would also provide quality cover for our front three and at a reported fee of just £13.75 million, he could turn out to be the bargain of the season.
The Liverpool fans certainly seemed happy with the news of Shaqiri cutting his holiday short to undergo a medical and here are some of the best reactions from Twitter.
On a cold night in stoke… Man’s not hot

Shaqiri has a left ass cheek problem and Liverpool try to drop the price from £13m to £12.75m but the deal has fallen through.
