The Switzerland worldwide is looking for a move back to the Premier League after Stoke's relegation to the Championship and it looks like Liverpool will be his new club.

Liverpool are confident of completing a £12m deal for Xherdan Shaqiri before leaving for their US Tour.

Kop boss Jurgen Klopp believes the Swiss star, who helped his country reach the last 16 of the World Cup, will further bolster his attacking options.

Shaqiri has a release clause in his contract which the Daily Telegraph claim is in excess of the £12million figure which has been widely reported.

Liverpool have already strengthened their squad this summer with the £39m signing of Monaco midfielder Fabinho and the arrival of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig. He admitted that he would like to leave following last season's relegation.

But the issue is that Liverpool have a policy of fining clubs who loan their players but then do not play them for a set amount of games. Shaqiri could be signed in time to play a part in that trip.

Calls for Liverpool to sign a goalkeeper were intensified after Loris Karius' mistake against Tranmere this week, but the club have made no progress with regards to a move for Alisson Becker, their preferred target.
