Powerful attacking midfielder heavily targeted by Reds…

With fans still reeling from the news that Steven Gerrard will be leaving at the end of the campaign, Liverpool made a move in the transfer market themselves…

According to transfer guru Gianluca di Marzio, who works for Sky Italia and Calcio Mercatto, we’ve offered €14m to Bayern Munich for Swiss playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri.

The offer is one of a permanent transfer – and we’ve taken the old-fashioned route by contacting the Bundesliga champions directly without speaking to agent’s or the 23-year-old’s representatives yet.

Juventus and Inter Milan are competing for Shaqiri too however, and are attempting to convince Shaqiri to commit to joining before making Bayern an official offer.

Both the Italian sides are more interested in signing him on loan, with a potential permanent offer at the end of the season.
