Liverpool Sign Xherdan Shaqiri From Stoke City In £13.75m Deal

14 July 2018

Jamie Carragher has sent a brilliant message to Xherdan Shaqiri after the winger took his No.23 shirt at Liverpool. I'm very happy that I'm here. "It's a huge club with big history, big players and a fantastic coach".

Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com: "The odd thing is in the summer break is that I always have to tell the players they need to have more holidays because they constantly want to be in immediately, but they can not do it".

'He has speed and ability, has the right amount of arrogance on the football pitch, real bravery to want the ball and influence things. "A few years ago I wanted to come too but it didn't happen", added Shaqiri, who was linked with Liverpool in 2014 when Bayern reportedly blocked a move. I was always an admirer of his so I'm happy to reunite with him.

Salah arrived after Shaqiri had departed, but the Egypt global will be a familiar face for the 26-year-old, as well as a rival for a place in the team.

Having triggered his release clause with a bid of around £13.5mil, the bulky attacker is set to become Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp's second signing of the summer.

But Burley does not think there is any way he will be break into the Liverpool side when the likes of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are fit.

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

"I'm happy that I see him here". To play for us these are mandatory requirements. We want to win games and be successful.

Shaqiri, who scored 15 goals in 84 league appearances in three years at Stoke, previously played for clubs including Basel and Inter.
