Liverpool are on the verge of signing Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City.
The Swiss international will join the club for around £13m after we activated a relegation clause in his contract.
Shaqiri will become our third signing of the summer following deals for Naby Keita and Fabinho and in fairness – it’s not one that has got supporters especially excited.
Jamie Carragher may be one of these, following a post on Instagram that likens the 26-year-old to his pal at the gym!
We’re not over the moon with Shaqiri, who’s always looked quite lazy to us, but who are we to argue with Jurgen Klopp’s transfer judgment?
Fans questioned the Andrew Robertson signing and he’s now one of the best left-backs in the business. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was labelled a waste of money, but before his injury, he was tearing up trees in the Champions League.
Shaqiri is mighty talented and if Klopp can motivate him to reach his best level, we’ve got a serious player on our hands.
Carragher is due back on Sky Sports for the upcoming Premier League campaign, following a suspension due tim spitting at a road user.
He’s admitted his mistake and English football coverage will be all the better with him back in the driving seat.
