Liverpool FC are ready to swoop for Stoke City forward Xherdan Shaqiri in a £12m deal this summer, according to a report in England.

The Switzerland worldwide has been linked with a cut-price summer move from Stoke with the former Bayern Munich winger available for just £12million, due to a clause in his contract, following the Potters relegation last season.

Shaqiri will join his colleagues as he and the Swiss National Team travel to Russian Federation for this Summer's World Cup.

Shaqiri featured as Switzerland won their final pre-tournament friendly against Japan, running out 2-0 winners, and the former Bayern star was asked about the possibility of a move to Liverpool following the game.

Firstly, Shaqiri is asked for his thoughts on Liverpool's Anfield stadium and bursts out laughing before saying: "The Anfield stadium is great certainly". He then enquired: "Why are you talking about Liverpool?".

"I can't tell you anything right now, I think my agents take care of my future". 'I think my agents take care of my future.

The Switzerland worldwide is now preparing for this month's World Cup finals but is expected to depart the Bet365 Stadium in the off-season after Stoke were unable to secure their top-flight status this season. I'm focussing on the national team right now.

Despite dropping down to the Championship, the 26-year-old enjoyed a successful individual season for the Potters, scoring eight times and providing seven assists.
