Liverpool are expected to sell a few more players before the window closes. We had plenty of fringe stars on their way out last term until the pandemic put paid to those plans. Amid conflicting reports, Sky Sports has claimed Liverpool are adamant they want £12.75m for Xherdan Shaqiri.
Shaq for next to nothing
This week has already seen some claims on the Swiss star’s future.
According to Corriere Dello Sport, Liverpool are willing to let Shaqiri go for next to nothing.
The Italian outlet claimed Lazio are interested but can’t afford the international star.
The report adds that the Reds would let him go for nearly free just to get him off the wage bill.
Liverpool set Xherdan Shaqiri asking price
Fresh reports in England have emerged in direct conflict with claims in Italy.
According to Sky Sports, Liverpool are adamant they want at least £12.75m for Xherdan Shaqiri.
The Reds are allegedly set to field interest from Sevilla, Villareal and Napoli.
What RTK has to say
It’s interesting that Sky makes no mention of interest from Lazio.
The Serie A side were believed to be front runners for the diminutive playmaker.
Nevertheless, this is a relief for Kopites everywhere.
Letting Shaq go for free would’ve been a costly error, we need to be squeezing buyers for every penny.
If we are going to sign a midfielder and a forward then we can’t afford to be letting players like Shaqiri go for nothing.
