Ex-Tottenham defender Ramon Vega is convinced that Swiss midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri, linked with Liverpool, will develop into one of "the top 10 players in Europe."
Shaqiri is currently on the books of runaway Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich and has featured 17 times for the German club in their current season, chipping in with six goals and two assists.
Vega believes that Shaqiri is crucial to the Swiss national team's hopes of reaching the knockout stages at this year's World Cup.
"He is without a doubt very skilful. He can definitely produce a decision in the game. He will be very important for Switzerland," Vega told GiveMeSport.
"I think if he continues with his experience, he'll definitely become one of the top 10 players in Europe."
Shaqiri played in an all but one of Switzerland's World Cup qualifying games, finding the back of the net on two occasions.
At 22 years of age, Shaquiri may look to move away from Bayern after the World Cup in search more first-team opportunities.
