Liverpool looking to sign Xherdan Shaqiri

Shaqiri does have a release clause but the exact details are unknown at this stage, though the fee is believed to be higher than the widely reported £12m.

Ojo, who spent a year ago helping Fulham win promotion to the Premier League scoring four goals in 22 appearances despite being sidelined for a time by a dislocated shoulder, has impressed already in pre-season.

Shaqiri's career makes for impressive reading despite the recent relegation with Stoke, with stints at Bayern Munich and Inter Milan displaying the huge potential the 5'7 winger possessed earlier in his playing days.

Liverpool have already bolstered their midfield options this summer with Naby Keita and Fabinho, for £52.75m from Red Bull Leipzig and £43.7m from Monaco respectively, and had lined up a £53m move for Nabil Fekir until a medical raised concerns.

Shaqiri's involvement at the World Cup ended last week when Switzerland were knocked out of the tournament by Sweden. Stoke have enquired about young winger Sheyi Ojo, who scored for the Reds in their pre-season friendly win over Tranmere on Tuesday night, while Klopp must make decisions over the likes of Harry Wilson, Ryan Kent, Marko Grujic, Ben Woodburn and Dominic Solanke, among others.

Shaqiri could do little to stop Stoke from sliding down to the Championship from the Premier League last season and is on his way out of the Potters this summer.

His side take on League Two outfit Bury on Saturday before a midweek game against Blackburn Rovers. Fekir is now part of the French squad which have made it to the World Cup final.
