Liverpool interested in Xherdan Shaqiri after Stoke’s relegation

A battle seems to be building for Stoke City star Xherdan Shaqiri after the Potters relegation to the Championship.

As Liverpool reignite their interest in signing Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke, an old interview has re-emerged revealing that Shaqiri wanted to join the Reds in 2014 but wasn't allowed to leave by Bayern Munich.

He continued: "We need three or four players in, but if we get that, I think we can genuinely challenge Manchester City".

Manager Jurgen Klopp wants to add depth in his attacking band and views Shaqiri who can operate on the right wing, the left wing and as a No.10 as the flawless option to bolster his ranks.

However, he could not help them remain at the Premier league the last term, despite scoring eight goals and assisting seven.

He said: "I want players who are committed to Stoke City - and if players want to leave, I will try and find the best solution to make that happen".

Ryan said it has been "frustrating" that the Justice Department hasn't provided the documents sooner. I think - but we have some more digging to do. "We still have some unanswered questions", Ryan said.

Leicester and Everton have also registered an interest in the £12m signing, who was brought in by Mark Hughes from Inter Milan. The winger, however, later claimed Bayern blocked his transfer to Anfield and, with his playing time at the Allianz Arena limited under Pep Guardiola, he joined Internazionale six months later.

Klopp is hoping to wrap up a deal for Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir in the coming weeks, but it remains to be seen if Liverpool can get a transfer across the line before the start of the World Cup next week.

Shaqiri's future, though, may not be sorted out imminently as he is heading to the World Cup in Russian Federation next week.
