How Liverpool Target Xherdan Shaqiri Was Blocked From Reds Move in 2014

Xherdan Shaqiri will be sold if the forward wants to leave, according to new Stoke boss Gary Rowett.

Clubs are lining up to steal the Swiss winger away from relegated Stoke City, with Premier League interest from Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton, while Roma are eyeing taking him to Italy.

Liverpool legend Ian Rush believes his former side will challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title next season.

The multinational forward is reported to be rather not too hard to sign, with a release clause of £12 million the only thing in the way of anyone purchasing him.

"It's very simple for me", he said at his unveiling "First and foremost no player under contract will leave this club unless the club feel it is the right deal".

However, Jurgen Klopp has a habit of getting the best out of underperforming players and has seen enough potential in Shaqiri to pursue an interest in the £12m man.

Former Switzerland worldwide and Liverpool defender Stephane Henchoz has urged countryman Xherdan Shaqiri to move to Anfield.

Furthermore, he wanted to join Liverpool 2015, but he claimed Bayern blocked the move and instead he headed to Italy with Inter Milan.

Liverpool are extensively linked to a move for French sensation Nabil Fekir, however, a deal is yet to be agreed with OL Lyon, his current club, who are holding out until the World Cup in order to demand a higher fee.

The 26-year-old is now with Switzerland's squad ahead of their World Cup campaign and is expected to play their first game against Brazil on June 17.
