“It’s hapninnnnnn”, “Wow good news” – These Liverpool fans can’t handle themselves as imminent arrival undergoes medical

Xherdan Shaqiri

Liverpool are close to signing Xherdan Shaqiri, as James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo tweeted that the Swiss star had cut short his holiday to have a medical at Melwood.

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.
