Galatasaray are interested in sealing a summer move for Xherdan Shaqiri, according to Fotomac, via Sport Witness.

The Swiss attacker could leave Liverpool at the end of the season, following two years at Anfield.

Galatasaray are seen as a potential suitor, although the Turkish giants may only be able to justify signing him on loan, with an option to buy him further down the line.

Shaqiri has only managed two starts in the Premier League this season, falling out of favour under Jurgen Klopp, as well as suffering from injury problems.

Klopp has made it fairly clear that Shaqiri isn’t in his current or long-term thoughts through his lack of game time this season, so a summer exit makes perfect sense.

Ideally, Liverpool need to earn a fee for his services in order to free-up funds for signing replacements. Galatasaray’s potential loan offer may, therefore, prove to be a stumbling block, with Liverpool looking at other clubs for Shaqiri to move to.

Still only 28, I would hope the Reds could at least earn back the £13.75 million they paid for the Switzerland star back in 2018, if not more, given his quality.

He is still arguably in the peak years of his career and his pedigree speaks for itself, with 22 goals in 82 appearances at international level.
