Xherdan Shaqiri could move to Newcastle this summer, providing their takeover goes through.
This is according to Dom King of the Daily Mail – who explains how talks have already begun between the player and the club.
Newcastle have sounded out Xherdhan Shaqiri’s representatives about a move this summer. Liverpool will not stand in his way if the initial talks firm up. Shaqiri would be interested, providing takeover goes through 🔴

Shaq has barely featured for us this season and with the arrival of Takumi Minamino in January and the potential capture of Timo Werner at some point – as well as the manner in which Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott are coming through the ranks – the Swiss is surplus to requirements.
With his injury record and the fact the transfer window is going to take such a financial hit due to the coronavirus, we can’t see Liverpool making a big profit on Shaq – but we can hopefully still get what we spent on him.
We’d suggest the transfer was worth it for his brace against Manchester United and cross for Gini Wijnaldum’s header v Barcelona alone!
And as a result, we’d wish him well in the north east, should a move go through.
