Xherdan Shaqiri undergoing Liverpool medical ahead of move from Stoke

Liverpool had an excellent season last time out, finishing in the top four and reaching the Champions League final.

Xherdan Shaqiri's medical is underway ahead of completing his £13million move to Liverpool.

There has been interest in Shaqiri from a number of clubs, but Liverpool are set to win the race and will activate his release clause of around £13.75m rather than thrashing out a different fee. Following Stoke's relegation to the Championship, the 26-year-old expressed a desire to remain in Premier League and recently stated it is "no secret" he will leave the bet365 Stadium.

His last-minute victor against Serbia sent Switzerland through to the World Cup round of 16 before their campaign drew to a close with a defeat to Sweden.

Shaqiri helped Switzerland reach the round-of-16 of the World Cup, with Stoke hoping those performances in Russian Federation would spark an auction for the forward.

Shaqiri will become the club's third signing of the summer and will see Liverpool's spending for this window exceed £100 million after Fabinho and Naby Keïta officially joined on the 1st of July.

A wunderkind at Bayern Munich, destined for greatness at Inter Milan and then an under-achiever at Stoke City, could Jurgen Klopp's attacking dynamic be the key to unlocking Shaqiri's potential?
