LIVERPOOL are in discussions with Stoke about a deal for winger Xherdan Shaqiri.
One of Switzerland's star performances in Russian Federation, his last-minute victor against Serbia sent the side through to the World Cup's round of 16 before their campaign drew to a close with a defeat to Sweden. All players are afforded a three-week break after playing in global competition and that would mean he would be ready to return to training for the week beginning July 23.
The 26-year-old scored eight goals and provided seven assists during Stoke's doomed Premier League campaign.

There is a release clause in his contract - understood to be around £13m - and Liverpool are discussing the details on that with the club. The Potters bought Shaqiri for £12m so they want to make a profit of some sort.
Liverpool have already strengthened their squad this summer with the £39m signing of Monaco midfielder Fabinho and the arrival of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig.
He admitted that he would like to leave following last season's relegation. Liverpool have been trying to reignite a deal despite a hands-off warning issued before the World Cup.
