Published Add your comment

Bayern Munich are the latest club to be linked with Basel playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri, according to Bild.

The Swiss starlet was close to joining Galatasaray last week before talks broke down between the two parties.

Previously linked with both Liverpool and Manchester United, Shaqiri is now a target for Munich in the summer transfer window.

Munich missed out on signing Marco Reus, who will join Borussia Dortmund in the summer, and want to add Shaqiri to their artillery.

His sterling performances in the Champions League, in which he assisted in knocking out reported suitors United, have caught the eye this season.

As well as performing impressively in the Champions League, Shaqiri made his ability known to admirers in England after netting his first international goal against Fabio Capello's men in a Euro 2012 qualifier.

Shaqiri is under contract at Basel until 2014, and is likely to demand a substantial fee if he's to leave.
