Some Liverpool fans disappointed that Shaqiri deal is agreed with Lyon

Some Liverpool fans can’t believe the club have agreed on a deal with Lyon for Xherdan Shaqiri.

What’s the story?

According to Sky Sports, the Reds have agreed a fee of £9.5m for the Switzerland international.

Shaqiri had already settled on personal terms with the French outfit over a move.

The ‘superb’ attacker allegdly asked Jurgen Klopp to let him leave so he can play regularly. Since joining Liverpool in 2018, the 29-year-old has made just 63 appearances for the side.

Despite selling Shaqiri, it does not sound like the Merseysiders will bring a replacement in. According to the Daily Mail, Harvey Elliott is under consideration as a replacement for the Swiss ace.

In a 38-game campaign, at 18, that is a move which can easily backfire.

Here is how some Liverpool fans reacted to the news…
