Liverpool are in talks to sign Stoke’s Switzerland forward Xherdan Shaqiri and could trigger his release clause, believed to be more than £13m.

The 26-year-old scored against Serbia at the World Cup as Switzerland reached the last 16, where they lost to Sweden.

Shaqiri joined Stoke from Inter Milan in August 2015 for a club record fee of £12m.

He was the Potters’ top scorer last season with eight goals as they were relegated from the Premier League.

In June, Shaqiri was reported[1] as saying he wanted to leave Stoke and sign for a Premier League club.

Liverpool have already strengthened their squad this summer with the £39m signing of Monaco midfielder Fabinho[2] and the arrival of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig.
