      Comments Off on French club eyeing move for creative Liverpool playmaker

Merseyside club reportedly could sell Xherdan Shaqiri to Monaco for a whopping £33m. Les Monegasques are keen on signing Reds attacker Xherdan Shaqiri, And Liverpool reportedly want £33m for Switzerland international a price that the French club are allegedly willing to pay.

And if the Merseyside club do manage to offload Xherdab for that fee, it would surely have to be considered as an exceptional business from the Reds.

Shaqiri joined Liverpool from Stoke City in the summer of 2018, for a fee believed to be worth £13m, and he has gone on to play 31 games for the Merseyside club, scored six goals and made five assists in the process.

An 80-capped Swiss winger, the Reds ace is a decent footballer, but he has hardly ready the world alight since moving to Anfield from the Potteries.

The German manager has Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah as his current wide attacking options, but he also has Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Adam Lallana, Divock Origi and Rhian Brewster who can all fill in on either flank.

The 27-year-old winger has not been a game-changer for the Merseyside club at all, so selling him for £33m to Ligue 1 club really would be an absolute masterstroke from Michael Edwards.

Monaco had terrible result in Ligue 1 as they finished the competition in a 17th position. The French club was unable to reach the Champions League playoff as they lost four matches in the group stage. Les Monegasques already signed Gelson Martins from Atletico Madrid and Benjamin Lecomte from Montpellier during this summer transfer window.
