Newcastle and Everton chasing Inter Milan's Xherdan Shaqiri

Published 1 Comments

Football News

After a move to Stoke City collapsed earlier this summer, Xherdan Shaqiri could be on his way to the Premier League after all, with Newcastle and Everton keen to snap up the Swiss winger.

According to reports in The Liverpool Echo, Shaqiri has recently snubbed a move to German outfit Schalke after he was made surplus to requirements at Inter Milan, having only moved to the Italian side in January of last year.

The announcement comes as a surprise as Shaqiri looked like one of the more impressive performers in a lacklustre Inter team last season, however having not fully settled at the San Siro and a mass overhaul taking place, it looks like he may have played his last game for the Milan giants and has been placed on the transfer list.

Big spenders

Stoke had agreed a fee in the region of £12 million for the player, however personal terms broke down between Stoke boss Mark Hughes and the 23-year-old who is rumoured to be wanting a move to a club who more suit his attacking style of play.

Neither side have launched any official offer as of yet, however with Steve McClaren in charge at Newcastle the spending has begun and Shaqiri could be next on the list for the club having nearly spent £40 million already this transfer window.

Attacking prowess

As for Everton, Roberto Martinez has been playing his cards rather close to his chest this window with the capture of Gerard Deulofeu being kept under wraps a move for Shaqiri on the sly would not be a surprising acquisition.

The attacker who would have cost Stoke £12 million earlier in the window is suspected to go for a similar fee and would be a welcomed addition to either Newcastle or Everton considering his lightening pace and attacking prowess.
