Liverpool will demand a fee of around £25 million for Xherdan Shaqiri should they decide to sell the Switzerland international in the summer, according to report from Goal.
Shaqiri’s future at Anfield has seemingly had a question mark lingering over it during the January transfer window.
The 28-year-old has made just two Premier League starts for the Reds this season. Meanwhile, he has made just four further appearances from the bench in the top flight.
But it appears that Jurgen Klopp has no interest in letting the forward go this month.
Goal reports that Roma and Sevilla have seen loan bids for the former Stoke City man rejected. And it seems that Liverpool have no plans to consider his future until the summer.
And Goal has claimed that Liverpool will want around £25 million should they cash in at the end of the season.
Goal adds that the Premier League leaders are confident that they will receive that sort of fee should they open the door for Shaqiri to move on.
TBR View – Good business for Liverpool
There are plenty of Liverpool fans who seem to be pleased that Shaqiri is not leaving this month. They remain in three competitions, so he could certainly have a role to play this season.
Nevertheless, perhaps they will accept that getting £25 million would be good business.
Goal reports that Shaqiri cost £13.5 million. So the Reds will almost double their money should an admirer meet their demands.
Given that he has barely played this season, that would be a fantastic achievement. And it may be a good time to bring an end to his Anfield career should such a bid come in.
