Grant SmithJul 14, 2018

Liverpool are confident of making Xherdan Shaqiri their third summer signing after opening transfer talks with Stoke City over the Switzerland global.

Jürgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, believes that Shaqiri, who is on holiday after playing at the World Cup, would be a valuable addition to his squad, having followed the player when the Swiss was with Bayern Munich.

Liverpool are confident that they will sign Swiss global Xherdan Shaqiri this summer, according to a report in The Guardian.

Liverpool have already spent heavily in the transfer market this summer in the shape of midfielders Naby Keita and Fabinho and Jurgen Klopp is keen to strengthen his forward line with a mind to challenging for the Premier League title.

According to multiple reports, Liverpool is in talks to bring the 26-year-old Switzerland winger to Anfield. He admitted that he would like to leave following last season's relegation.

Liverpool, who defeated local rivals Tranmere 3-2 on Tuesday night, head to the United States on July 21 for a week-long tour that will see them play games against Dortmund, Manchester City and Manchester United.

Barnsey too is excited at the idea, calling it an "excellent" signing for the club.
