Liverpool close to completing Shaqiri transfer

Liverpool have agreed a fee to sign Xherdan Shaqiri

Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo has reportedly emerged as a transfer target of English Championship club, Stoke City.

Ojo spent last season on loan at Fulham, helping them achieve promotion back to the Premier League, although his playing time was limited to a part-time role.

Shaqiri started his medical at Liverpool on Friday morning after an agreement was reached with Stoke on Thursday, with discussions having started earlier this week.

Shaqiri is believed to be keen on a move to Anfield but could be offered the chance to return to Italy.

It's down to what we do behind the scenes, what we work on in training, all the hard work to get here. "I'm so pleased for him because he's a great person as well".

But it looks like Liverpool have finally got their hands on another attacker and as long as there are no late complications, Shaqiri will become Klopp's third summer signing following the arrivals of Naby Keita and Fabinho. Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané shouldered the bulk of the work last season and 26-year-old Shaqiri offers an alternative given his versatility on either flank.

The Nigerian-born player has been lined up by the Potters as replacement for Switzerland star Xherdan Shaqiri who is set to join Champions League finalists Liverpool.

Shaqiri would not be seen as someone to regularly feature in Reds XI but certainly gives Jurgen Klopp a variety of options in the front line.
