Roma not in the race to land Liverpool target Shaqiri

Jurgen Klopp Liverpool GETTY Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have confirmed their pre-season fixtures

As Liverpool reignite their interest in signing Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke, an old interview has re-emerged revealing that Shaqiri wanted to join the Reds in 2014 but wasn't allowed to leave by Bayern Munich. After the Champions League final, it is now their goal to win the league.

Liverpool are monitoring the situation of Stoke City's Xherdan Shaqiri this summer, a source has told ESPN FC.

A short 6-month spell at Inter Milan didn't work out but the Switzerland global proved to be a solid signing for Stoke City since joining the Potters in the summer of 2015. The question is if he stays in the Premier League or moves overseas.

However, Shaqiri could be set for a move back to the top flight as he has a relegation release clause which allows him to leave this summer for just £12m - the same fee Stoke paid Inter two years ago.

Vladimir Putin Asks Austrian Leader to Set Up Summit With Donald Trump
Asked by a young blogger whether the government had plans to shut down Instagram and YouTube, Putin insisted that it does not. Unlike Prigozhin's friendly ties with the Kremlin, Soros is not friendly with the White House.


The same article states that Fekir is Jurgen Klopp's primary target to improve his attacking options ahead of the new Premier League season.

Donaldson said of Shaqiri: "Liverpool fans on message boards are saying "great player, great skill but Jurgen Klopp's whole ethos is about working hard and running".

However, with the Reds still reportedly keen on Nabil Fekir, it may turn out that the club see the Swiss as an alternative in case that deal does not go through.

Shaqiri will be hoping to produce a strong display at the World Cup in Russian Federation to spark a bidding war for his signature.
