Reports are strong from multiple sources that Liverpool have paid Stoke City's release clause in Xherdan Shaqiri's contract and are hours away from signing the Swiss international.
Shaqiri is set to have a standard medical evaluation, but this looks to be a done deal. Liverpool are happy to add depth to their wide attacking options while Stoke, who have been relegated to the Championship, simply cannot afford to hold on to a player of Shaqiri's caliber and wage demands. Shaqiri is one of the better dead ball specialists in the league and has his moments of brilliance in open play as well, but his fantasy value will be compromised player for a club like Liverpool. Initially, he looks to be a bench weapon, backing up the likes of Sadio Mane and Mo Salah. That said, an injury to either, or a poor run of form by Mane could hand Shaqiri a chance to see an extended run in the side, which would make him a big name in fantasy circles. Jul 12 - 10:45 PM
