Tottenham and Liverpool have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of highly rated Bayern Munich youngster, Xherdan Shaqiri, after the player took to Facebook to play down speculation linking him with a move away from his current club this summer.

Shaqiri moved to Bayern Munich for a reported £11million just two seasons ago, after emerging as a future star at FC Basel. However, the 22-year-old has been linked with a number of clubs this summer, with Liverpool, Tottenham, Juventus and Monaco reportedly interested in securing his services.

Potential summer move

While Bayern are reluctant to sell - as Shaqiri is seen as a player with a lot of potential by the German champions – they have reportedly put a £15million price-tag on their Swiss star. However, Shaqiri took to Facebook to make it clear that he is happy at Bayern Munich and is not seeking a move away from the club, according to Sky Sports.

The midfielder posted on his Facebook page: “As you all know I am currently on holiday so I am not in talks with other clubs nor have I spoken with any journalists.

“It is the time of year when much is written, but as we all know, there is very little truth behind it.

“I have a contract at Bayern until 2016. My advisors are in regular contact with the responsible people at FC Bayern so there is no reason for speculation.”

However, the midfielder reportedly told Tuttosport that in relation to speculation linking him with Italian giants, Juventus: “Juve? I don't know if there are contacts with them or with Liverpool and Monaco.

“Surely Juve could be a good option so as Liverpool and Monaco.

“They are a big club, who wouldn't like to play there?”

Set to stay?

It is beginning to look increasingly likely that the Swiss international will stay put at Bayern Munich this summer.

However, if he does end up transferring to another club, he has all but confirmed that Tottenham won't be his destination, if only through his omission of them altogether.
