14 Juillet, 2018, 00:28 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Shaqiri could make his competitive debut for Liverpool at home to West Ham United on the opening weekend of the new Premier League season.

Liverpool will pay £13 million for Xherdan Shaqiri with the Switzerland worldwide undergoing a medical today in order to finalise his move from Stoke City.

He joins Naby Keita and Fabinho as Liverpool's summer arrivals so far.

Shaqiri started his medical at Liverpool on Friday morning after an agreement was reached with Stoke on Thursday, with discussions having started earlier this week.

The Switzerland worldwide has been a player on Liverpool's radar since 2014 and had his heart set on a move to Anfield when the club's interest first emerged this summer.

Shaqiri helped Switzerland reach the round-of-16 of the World Cup, with Stoke hoping those performances in Russian Federation would spark an auction for the forward.

Shaqiri will become the fourth Liverpool player in the Premier League era to wear the 23 shirt.

But it seems as though Jurgen Klopp yet again has stolen a march on Liverpool's rivals by completing a deal for the 26-year-old.

"He has speed and ability, has the right amount of arrogance on the football pitch, real bravery to want the ball and influence things".

'Finally, Xherdan the person will fit in perfectly at Liverpool I believe. "So I'm really glad and happy to be here", Shaqiri told the club's official website.

Shaqiri obviously has plenty of experience playing in England following three solid years at Stoke and he's also played in the Champions League during spells at Basel, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan.

"I want to improve myself too, I want to be with the best and I want to win titles".
