He is free to leave the club following their relegation from the Premier League
Liverpool will try and make Stoke City’s Xherdan Shaqiri their third signing of the summer.
The Reds have already snapped up Naby Keita from RB Leipzig and Fabinho from Monaco, with the Switzerland international now firmly in their sights.
According to the Telegraph, Liverpool have opened negotiations with Stoke and want to trigger the player’s release clause, which is believed to be around £13million.
The 26-year-old will be allowed to leave the club following their relegation from the Premier League last season.
He had been representing his country at the World Cup, but his involvement ended when Sweden beat them 1-0 in the last 16.
Shaqiri has been at Stoke since 2015 when the Potters paid Inter £12m for him.
