Liverpool began monitoring Shaqiri earlier in the summer and they are now holding discussions with Stoke about a move for the 26-year-old.

The Echo reports that Shaqiri would prefer a move to Liverpool and Stoke are hopeful that selling the Swiss global to the Reds would mean they would be more willing to loan out one of Harry Wilson and Sheyi Ojo.

Liverpool are closing in on the signing of Stoke winger Xherdan Shaqiri.

"Of course, I would like to play on the biggest stage in football".

Klopp's side reached the Champions League final last season but finished a distant 25 points behind record breaking champions Manchester City.

Shaqiri was among Switzerland's best players in their run to the last 16 of the World Cup, scoring a late victor in their only victory, against Serbia. Stoke have enquired about young winger Sheyi Ojo, who scored for the Reds in their pre-season friendly win over Tranmere on Tuesday night, while Klopp must make decisions over the likes of Harry Wilson, Ryan Kent, Marko Grujic, Ben Woodburn and Dominic Solanke, among others.

Former Stoke boss Mark Hughes signed Shaqiri from Inter Milan in August 2015 for £12million. Before the World Cup, it was revealed that his ridiculously cheap release clause was attracting interest from several Premier League clubs with Liverpool said to be interested. It's pretty normal to be aware of clubs being interested.
