Liverpool favourites as Dalglish 'identifies' Euro teen starlet

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are being linked with a move for Swiss winger Xherdan Shaqiri.

The Basel teenager is earning rave reviews for his performances in the Super League, leading to speculation that Liverpool are keen to bring the player to Anfield.

Shaqiri first shot to the attention of the English public with a wonderful goal for his country against the Three Lions in a Euro 2012 qualifier, and sportsvibe claim Liverpool remain the favourites to land the player after identifying him as a prize addition, despite interest from a number of other clubs.

Aston Villa are thought to be another of the clubs interested in bringing the player to the Barclays Premier League, and a summer bidding war could ensue for the talented 19-year-old.

Bayern Munich and Juventus lead the chase outside of England, suggesting an inflated transfer fee could be on the cards in an effort to prize the player away from St. Jakob-Park.

Liverpool have been linked with a number of wingers in recent months, with Kenny Dalglish hinting at a number of transfer changes in the summer.


NESV, the Merseysiders' new owners, have proved in January that they are willing to back the Liverpool legend financially and will once again be called upon to splash the cash at the end of the season.

Charles N'Zogbia is another who has been named alongside Liverpool as a potential target, and an offer for one could be seen when the transfer window re-opens.
