Shaqiri made 38 appearances across all competitions for Stoke last season, scoring eight goals and registering a further seven assists.

Liverpool have announced on Liverpoolfc.com that Xherdan Shaqiri has completed his move from Stoke City for a reported £13m.

The formalities were swiftly concluded with the Liverpool Echo claiming the attacker underwent his medical at Melwood on Friday and agreed terms over a five-year contract.

'I'm very happy to be here, ' Shaqiri told the club's official website.

Jürgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, has followed Shaqiri from the player's spell at Bayern Munich and believes he will bolster his attacking options.

'He joins a dressing room of really good lads and I know they will welcome him with open arms and help him settle and integrate quickly'.

Antonio Conte To Sue Chelsea
Antonio Conte , who won the Premier League and FA Cup during two years with Chelsea , has been sacked as the club's manager. Sarri will become the 12th manager to take over the reins at Chelsea since Roman Abramovich bought the London club in 2003.

"He has speed and ability, has the right amount of arrogance on the football pitch, real bravery to want the ball and influence things".

The 26-year-old, who was part of the Switzerland squad which reached the round of 16 at the World Cup in Russian Federation, joined Stoke in 2015 from Inter Milan before going on to make 84 league appearances for the club.

Liverpool were the frontrunners for his signature for some time having been interested in signing Shaqiri a few years back.

"I want to improve myself too, I want to be with the best and I want to win titles". And now, according to Telegraph Reds are reported to have agreed a transfer fee for Switzerland's world cup hero, Xherden Shaqiri and the Swiss global is set to undergo medical on Friday.
