Liverpool need to sign a midfielder. Last summer we sold a member of the squad without replacing him and look how that turned out. Having lost Gini Wijnaldum we’re left with no option but to bring in a successor. Liverpool should try to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic by using Xherdan Shaqiri in the deal.
Lazio interest in Xherdan Shaqiri
One player we expect to be on the way out of Liverpool is Xherdan Shaqiri.
The 96-cap Swiss international has failed to provide effective cover in the past couple of seasons and his minutes were limited last term.
According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Lazio hold an interest in Xherdan Shaqiri.
The Serie A side are said to be looking to make their interest concrete in the near future.
Liverpool want Sergej Milinkovic-Savic
Il Messaggero, as relayed by La Lazio Siamo Noi recently reported that Liverpool are interested in Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
The Lazio midfielder is known for his dynamic box-to-box style, making lung busting runs about the pitch.
26-years-old and a veteran of the Serie A side’s midfield he’s been linked with a move away from Lazio for some years now.
The report claimed that it could be difficult for the Reds to bring the Serbian in as Maurizio Sarri is allegedly intent on keeping him.
Player plus cash deal
Liverpool could land Milinkovic-Savic by using Xherdan Shaqiri in the deal.
The Swiss international impressed during Euro 2020, surely tempting potential buyers.
Given that the Reds like to sell-to-buy, including Shaq in the deal would be a great way to bring the cost down.
Lazio are sure to demand a lofty fee, anything we can do to reduce that would be helpful.
