GETTYLiverpool transfer news Xherdan Shaqiri may have emerged as a shock target

Donaldson said of Shaqiri: "Liverpool fans on message boards are saying "great player, great skill but Jurgen Klopp's whole ethos is about working hard and running".

Xherdan Shaqiri is allegedly looking to secure a move away from relegated Stoke City this summer, and Liverpool are the latest club to show an interest in the former-Bayern Munich forward, according to the Express.

Liverpool have been heavily linked with a deal to bring the Swiss global to Anfield this summer, with the club prepared to pay the player's £12 million relegation release clause.

He told Swiss daily Blick: "Liverpool will strengthen now".

Then under the stewardship of Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool were coming off the back of one of their best ever Premier League campaigns, in which they finished second behind Manchester City.

At Liverpool, Shaqiri would be resigned to a bit-part role due to the formidable form of their current front-three and, as an inverted winger playing on the right, he does not offer anything different to their talisman Mohamed Salah.

Xherdan Shaqiri may not be leaving Stoke as quickly as he thinks.

The France worldwide is reportedly set to complete a medical with the Premier League side in a deal worth £57 million, though his club say the deal is not at such an advanced stage yet.

Liverpool were close to signing Shaqiri from Bayern in the summer of 2014 and were the player's preferred option at the time.
