The Standard (UK)

Liverpool is turning their attention to Stoke City attacker Xherdan Shaqiri and are considered the front runners to land him, according to ESPN FC.

Shaqiri, 26, is set to leave Stoke this summer, and per the report, Shaqiri’s brother and agent met with Liverpool officials last Friday to discuss a potential move to Anfield.

Shaqiri is currently in Russia preparing for the World Cup.

Shaqiri is reportedly has a release clause of £13.5 million in his contract, which makes him a very attractive option given the price tag.
