Liverpool are in need of transfer funds. Jürgen Klopp will be hoping to bring in a midfielder before the end of the window and he’ll need player sales to finance that. We could be set for an imminent boost. According to Goal, Liverpool could sell Xherdan Shaqiri in the near future with Lazio one of four clubs chasing the midfielder.
Show me the money
Jürgen Klopp needs a midfielder and a forward to come in this summer.
The Reds have lost a key man from the middle of the park with Gini Wijnaldum joining PSG on a free transfer.
Furthermore, the boss needs a striker to add competition and depth to the attacking line.
At the moment there is no cover for the front three and complacency is creeping in.
We need a plan B for when Roberto Firmino’s game doesn’t suit the opposition, we need a lethal finisher.
Xherdan Shaqiri Lazio and many others
This summer is sure to see the end of Little Big Jed Shaqiri’s stay at the club.
The short and stocky playmaker has been brilliant in flashes but these flashes have been few and far between of late.
As a result he is expected to be moved on before the end of the window.
According to Neil Jones for Goal, interest in the Swiss international is ramping up.
Xherdan Shaqiri is allegedly attracting interest from Lazio, Napoli, Sevilla and Villareal.
The Reds would allegedly want around £15m for the Euro 2020 star.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool cashing in on Shaqiri can’t come a moment too soon.
He’s too talented to be sat on the bench but he doesn’t suit our system.
Hopefully we’ll see the £80k-a-week star flourish elsewhere in the coming years.
There’s plenty more left in the tank for the 29-year-old and Lazio appears to be the most likely destination.
