Xherdan Shaqiri drops Liverpool hint when asked about his future

General view inside the stadium prior to the Premier League match between Stoke City and Swansea City at Bet365 Stadium

Shaqiri, who scored 15 goals in 92 games for Stoke, refused to comment about the speculation linking him with a move to Liverpool when interviewed a few days ago, but it appears that the Reds are interested in signing him this summer.

Shaqiri is reported to have a release clause of £13.5 million in his contract and that makes him an attractive proposition at that price, with sources telling ESPN FC that Liverpool made their interest clear last week.

The tricky Swiss winger almost joined the Reds back in 2014 until a move to Anfield was blocked, with Shaqiri instead going on to play for Inter before completing a switch to Stoke City in 2015.

However, Paul Lambert's men were relegated after a ten-year stay in the top flight, with the 26-year-old the most highly-prized asset in the squad.

The Switzerland worldwide has made no secret of the fact he is looking to quit Stoke City this summer following the club's relegation from the Premier League and a stay in England's top flight is his first choice.

Asked by Blick about Anfield, he responded with a laugh and replied: "Anfield is great, definitely". I think my agents take care of my future.

"I am focusing on the national team right now".

And Shaqiri has only increase those reports by refusing to comment on them, stating that he wishes to concentrate on Switzerland ahead of the World Cup.

I personally think he was being very tactical in not directly answering the reporter's questions and it may well be that a move to Anfield is being put together.
