Liverpool are set to move on from the heartbreak they suffered from their failed bid for France international Nabil Fekir.
Nabil Fekir is heavily linked with a switch to Anfield Stadium in the summer as it was initially reported across all media that the Frenchman has agreed to sign a deal with the Merseyside club but the deal surprisingly collapsed in the last minute.
Though Shaqiri is not a like-for-like replacement for the Frenchman, the Reds are hoping they could capture the Stoke City’s striker this summer after the world cup.
The Swiss, who is presently in Russia with his national teammates, is keen on moving out of Britannia Stadium after their relegation to the Championship competition next season.
According to David Maddock, a renounced writer and journalist, Liverpool are ready to make a £58m move for his signature.
It was initially believed that the Reds are planning a £12m offer for him, but after failing to acquire Fekir’s signature, they have reportedly improved the contract offered to Stoke City.
It is yet to be seen if Stoke would allow the Switzerland international to leave the club ahead of next season.
The relegated club will do everything possible to gain an instant promotion back to the country’s top-flight in the upcoming season.
