Liverpool in talks with Bayern Munich over deal for winger Xherdan Shaqiri [Di Marzio]

XherdanYoung Swiss star Xherdan Shaqiri is a target for a host of top European teams, after struggling to break into Bayern Munich’s first team.

According to respected Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Liverpool are negotiating a deal with Bayern Munich for the 22 year old.

It’s unclear how much Bayern want for the player but figures of around £15m have been reported.

Shaqiri signed for Bayern in 2012 for approximately £10m but has been firmly behind Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery and Thomas Muller in the pecking order.

Liverpool will watch his performances at the World Cup closely as they attempt to thrash out a deal.
