Liverpool begin talks with Stoke City over Xehrdan Shaqiri transfer

Shaqiri admitted prior to the World Cup that he would be looking for a move away from Stoke this summer so it is likely that the agreement of personal terms should be relatively straight forward, although nothing can ever be taken for granted when it comes to Liverpool and transfers!

Liverpool have opened talks for Stoke City winger Xherdan Shaqiri as they look to trigger his £13.5 million relegation release clause.

Stoke, who were relegated last season, are in pole position to sign Wilson, also a winger, but there is also strong interest in the 21-year-old, who signed a five-year contract this week, from Swansea City and Aston Villa.

Wimbledon wont budge on World Cup final clash, happy with phone viewing
Tomorrow's match kicks offsat 7pm but Sunday's World Cup final starts at 4pm, two hours before the men's Wimbledon final. That game was broadcast on the big screen at the Wimbledon grounds. "They'll hear every point: 'Wow, love-15, 15-30'".

A move to Anfield would make Shaqiri the Reds' third signing of the summer following the arrival of midfielders Fabinho and Isaac Christie-Davies.

Shaqiri has recently returned from the World Cup in Russian Federation with one goal and one assist in four appearances for Switzerland. Liverpool got lucky last season in that their front three - Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mo Salah - remained fit and healthy for the majority of the campaign, but their lack of depth was exposed during the Champions League final, when Salah departed injured.

But the issue is that Liverpool have a policy of fining clubs who loan their players but then do not play them for a set amount of games. Fekir, in any case, is still with France at the World Cup and would not be due to return to action until early-August.
