  • GETTYLiverpool transfer news Xherdan Shaqiri may have emerged as a shock target

Leicester City are reportedly set to challenge Liverpool for the Stoke City man's signature.

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".

Transfer season is in full swing and a number of reports today are suggesting that Liverpool are on the verge of the shock signing Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City.

Shaqiri made his name at FC Basel after coming through their youth ranks before earning a move to Bayern Munich in 2012 where he helped win two Bundesliga titles and the Champions League.

According to the Mirror, Shaqiri is available for just £12.5 million this summer, after a clause inserted into his contract was activated following the Potters' relegation down to the Championship.

The Switzerland worldwide would nearly certainly play back-up to Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, as well as whoever Liverpool bring in this summer.

"The Premier League is the best league in the world in my view and he should stay there".

Shaqiri is understood to have a £12m release clause included in his deal at Stoke, which has piqued the interest of potential suitors such as Liverpool.

The Stoke no.22 will need to decide whether or not he wants to move to Liverpool as he would not be guaranteed game time and with Everton also interested, Shaqiri will have to make a decision based on minutes vs. chances of silverware.

The Anfield club are close to securing a deal worth around £53m for Lyon play-maker Nabil Fekir having already recruited Fabinho from Monaco for £43m last month.
