Shaqiri tweet boosts Reds hope

Liverpool's chances of signing Bayern Munich forward Xherdan Shaqiri have been boosted after his latest social media activity.

Earlier this week, Bayern Munich director Matthias Sammer said that the Switzerland International was not for sale and an important player for the future.

However, this clearly has not been taken well by Shaqiri and took to Twitter to express his views. He tweeted:

"I live in the present...Not in the future... ;-)"

Clearly, Shaqiri means that he wants regular first team action and if he has to move away from Bayern to get this, he will do so. The 22-year-old made just 17 appearences for the Bundesliga Champions last season and with the signing of Robert Lewandowski, it will make it even more difficult for the youngster to break into the side.

Liverpool interest

Liverpool have been rumoured to be interested in Shaqiri to replace Luis Suarez who moves to Barcelona for £75M.

Shaqiri impressed at the World Cup for Switzerland, scoring a hat-trick in their 3-0 win over Honduras.

He would be joining new signings Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Emre Can and most recently Lazar Markovic at Anfield, as The Reds look to cope with life without Suarez.

AS Roma are also interested in bringing in in the striker, who is valued in the region of £15M
