Liverpool trigger Xherdan Shaqiri's release clause sources

Liverpool have already strengthened their squad this summer with the £39m signing of Monaco midfielder Fabinho, and the arrival of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig.

The winger impressed for Switzerland at the 2018 World Cup, including scoring the victor against Serbia in the group stage. Shaqiri has been strongly linked with the Red half of Merseyside for the past couple of months but rivals Manchester United were also keen to acquire the services of 26-year-old winger.

A deal for Nabil Fekir is still a while away from being completed although French journalist Löic Tanzi has claimed that talks will resume after Jean-Michel Aulas made a promise to his skipper that he will continue negotiations with Liverpool.

Liverpool have completed the signing of Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke on a long-term contract.

Trump was greeted at the palace by May, whose government has been rocked by resignations from ongoing tumult over Brexit. He added: "I can you tell you that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation now is a really a fine-tuned machine.

Jurgen Klopp has described signing Xherdan Shaqiri as a "no-brainer" after Liverpool confirmed the capture of the forward.

Shaqiri was Stoke's record signing when he joined the Potters from Inter Milan for £12 million in mid-August 2015.

Shaqiri can operate in an advanced role across midfield as well as in the front three, which will enhance Jurgen Klopp's ability to rotate his forwards. Adding the Switzerland global can provide much-needed cover for star forward Mohamed Salah in particular. He has agreed a five-year deal and has taken over the No 23 shirt that was vacated by Emre Can's move to Juventus.

With respect to Shquiri's much cheaper release clause and his vast experience of playing in different leagues, no doubt he could be the ideal acquisition for the Reds in many ways.
