Liverpool set price for Shaqiri

Liverpool have decided how much they want for Xherdan Shaqiri.

The Swiss international joined the Merseyside club for a fee of £13 million from Stoke two years ago, but has failed to make a significant impact at Anfield, especially this season with his progress badly hampered by injuries.

And now he is one of the players widely expected to leave, as Jurgen Klopp plans a summer purge of his squad.

Roma are one of the sides interested, but the Serie A club are strapped for cash, and may not be able to afford the £16 – £ 18 million that Liverpool are likely to demand for the winger. Instead they would prefer a loan move with an option to buy.

Liverpool do not have to sell Shaqiri, who is under contract with them until 2023. However, if they cannot get a permanent buyer then they may be open to the loan suggestion in order to get his annual salary of £4 million off their wage bill.
