Liverpool set sights on Bayern Munich winger

Liverpool have turned their transfer attentions to Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri, after long-term target Mohamed Salah edged closer towards a move to Chelsea, reports the Daily Express.

Having trailed the Egypt international for a number of weeks, Jose Mourinho looks to have slipped in ahead of the Reds, in the quest for his signature.

Now, Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers is ready to raid the Bundesliga giants for the services of the 22-year-old, who has found regular first-team football difficult to come by at the Allianz Arena.

The impressive form of Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben has left Pep Guardiola with a major headache when it comes to Shaqiri, who has primarily been deployed from the bench this season.

With three goals in 17 appearances in 2013/14, the Switzerland international is still rated highly, with reports around Europe suggesting he will command a fee of around £17million.

Liverpool were actually linked with the attacking midfielder during the summer, but Bayern Munich's chief executive, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge refuted claims the club had received any offers.

"Nobody has called about Shaqiri. Right now there are no plans [to sell]," he said. “The coach is completely satisfied with him.”
