Liverpool are lining up summer swoop for Bayern Munich midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri, according to Goal.com.
The Swiss international has become the subject of interest from Premier League high-flyers Liverpool as he struggles to break into the Bayern side, with Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben providing formidable competition for regular first-team football at the Allianz Arena.
The 22-year-old has come to the attention of Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, who is looking to strengthen his squad in anticipation of the Reds return to Champions League action, next season.
"Of course if a top club comes in I will evaluate the offer but that happens to every player," the wing wizard stated.
The skilful starlet made the move to Germany from FC Basel in 2012, netting 14 times in 63 games despite not being a regular starter for the Champions League holders.
Bayern boss Pep Guardiola has an embarrassment of riches in attacking options, which means Shaqiri could be forced to move in search of a star role this summer.
Switzerland's involvement in this summer's World Cup also provides a shop window for the ex-Basel star to shine, or increase his transfer fee further if Liverpool fail to agree a deal before the tournament gets underway.
