Liverpool are closing in on a deal to bring Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri to Anfield, according to The Daily Star

Citing reports in Switzerland, the report has suggested that the Merseyside outfit are set to bring the 22-year-old ace to the Premier League for £15 million. 

Shaqiri, who struggled for opportunities under Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich last season, has been the subject of from Manchester United in recent time. 

However, the winger ruled out the possibility of joining Louis van Gaal's side as he wants to take part in next season's Champions League competition. 

Manchester United missed out on Europe altogether as they only managed to secure a seventh placed Premier League finish last term. Liverpool, meanwhile, finished in second place in England's elite division, meaning the club will embark on Europe's grandest stage again in the 2014/15 campaign. 

With the likes of Rickie Lambert and Emre Can set to grace the Anfield turf next season, it appears that Shaqiri could become Brendan Rodgers' third summer signing. 

The Reds will be desperate to prove their credentials once again next term and will be looking to go one better in the Premier League. It remains to be seen as to whether the Bayern ace becomes part of Liverpool's future in the coming weeks.
