Liverpool will have to fight off interest from PSV Eindhoven in their bid to sign Swiss sensation Xherdan Shaqiri.

According to the Dutch club have identified the 18-year-old as the ideal replacement to Balazs Dzsudzsak, whose future at the Phillips Stadium looks increasingly doubtful.

Shaqiri's stock rose considerably after he scored a stunning goal for Switzerland in their 3-1 Euro 2012 qualification defeat against England two weeks ago.

The Basel winger has since been linked with a move to a £2 million January move to Anfield, with Roy Hodgson allegedly a key player in any potential deal.

Hodgson, 63, was the Switzerland national coach between 1992 and 1995 and is understood to still retain potentially influential contacts in the country's footballing hierarchy as he pursues the highly sought after Shaqiri.

It was reported earlier this week that the youngster has expressed his desire in moving to Anfield and is hoping Liverpool will revive the interest in him they had shown during Rafa Benitez's tenure.
