The duo have been linked with several moves to numerous clubs around Europe, but it seems we now know where they’ll end up.

Woodburn is said to have attracted to attention of Hearts in Scotland, with Edinburgh Evening News journalist Barry Anderson stating a short-term loan deal is close.

While Shaqiri has been heavily linked with Ligue 1 side Lyon, with Fabrizio Romano claiming personal terms have already been agreed on a recent episode of his Here We Go podcast.

The duo are valued at £10.8 million and £1.8 million by Transfermarkt respectively – but it’s unclear how much of that will be recouped.

Liverpool recently negotiated a deal with Sheffield United which saw Ben Davies join the Championship side on loan for an initial £500,000 – a fee that will be doubled should the Blades secure promotion this season.
