Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo has reportedly emerged as a transfer target of English Championship club, Stoke City.

Liverpool have added depth to their attacking options with the signing of Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City on a five-year deal after activating his £13 million relegation release clause.

The Swiss global winger is the Reds' third major purchase of the summer, and has penned a five-year deal at Anfield.

Xherdan Shaqiri looks set to become a Liverpool player this weekend, with strong reports of a medical due for Friday.

"I'm very happy to be here". So I'm really glad and happy to be here.

"As a player you always want to be on the biggest stage in football". A few years ago I wanted to come too but it didn't happen.

The winger netted a 90th minute victor against Serbia to help Switzerland qualify for the knockout stages, but they were defeated by Sweden in the round of 16. I want to improve myself too, I want to be with the best and I want to win titles.

Liverpool, certainly, is ahead of any other Premier League sides in the transfer market as the Merseysiders already have clinched the signatures of highly rated midfield pair Naby Keita and Fabinho.

Shaqiri, formerly of Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, will wear the No 23 shirt for the Reds and has been welcomed to the club by his new manager Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool have been strongly linked with Shaqiri in recent months and TeamTalk reported earlier this week that Manchester United had joined their rivals in the race to sign the Switzerland global.
