Personal terms agreed, medical done, Liverpool complete transfer of speedster



Reports from Merseyside tabloid The Echo claims that a medical has been conducted for Swiss star. The report says that the player is currently at Merseyside ahead of the medical and has reportedly agreed personal terms with the Reds.

It is expected that the player would pass the medical and an official confirmation will be announced in days.

Liverpool had been linked to the 26-year-old all through the summer with the player admitting to loving the idea of playing for the Anfield club when quizzed on links to the club last month.

Liverpool are reported to have triggered the release clause in Shaqiri’s contract rumoured to be around £13 million. Klopp is reportedly a huge fan of the skilful wide forward and views Shaqiri as a good back up for his famous front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and, Roberto Firmino.

Shaqiri would represent an excellent addition to the Reds who appeared to run out of steam in the tail end of last season. He would bring experience and title-winning mentality to Klopp’s side. Shaqiri and Klopp regularly faced off during his time at German giants Bayern Munich with the Swiss maestro winning consecutive titles during his stint in Germany.

Shaqiri made 36 appearances for the Potters last season, scoring 8 goals and 7 assists but was unable to prevent Stoke City from being relegated to the English Championship.
