Liverpool need to sell players before signing new players, Jurgen Klopp has been so clear. For Shaqiri and Lyon, they have been in negotiations but there is still no agreement. Shaqiri has an agreement with Lyon but there is still no agreement with the clubs. So let’s see what happens with the negotiations.
READ LIVERPOOL VERDICT
Valued at £10.8million and under contract until 2022 at Anfield (Transfermarkt), this has to be the window Michael Edwards cashes in on the former Bayern Munich man.
Whilst the best intentions are clear for all to see as the Reds attempt to recoup close to their £13million expenditure, perhaps it could be time to take a loss on Shaqiri and others.
Left out of the squad to face Norwich City, along with Nat Phillips, both could be nearing moves away from Merseyside.
As the window enters the final two weeks, Kopites will want to see more in the way of outgoings and at least two new arrivals before the deadline passes.
