Liverpool have got brilliant attacking players in the squad but they surely lack quality and depth in their offensive department.

The Reds have been linked with Swiss international and Stoke City playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri for quite some time and the latest reports going on in the media seem positive for the Anfield faithful.

According to renowned British source The Independent, the 26-year-old’s move to Liverpool will likely be confirmed after the World Cup, which probably means that the deal has been agreed. The World Cup will conclude on July 15.

Shaqiri scored 8 goals and provided 7 assists in the Premier League last season but still, he could not save the Potters from going down to the Championship.

The former Bayern Munich attacker is surely a top talent, who deserves to be playing in the top flight and a move to Liverpool should be fruitful for him.

The Switzerland superstar has always performed fantastically well for the national side and in the World Cup 2018, he has already directly contributed in 2 goals in 3 games.

He made his debut for the senior Swiss side back in 2010 and so far, in 73 games, he has scored 23 goals and provided 19 assists. Not to forget, next Tuesday, Switzerland will collide against Sweden in the Round of 16 of the World Cup.
