Xherdan Shaqiri is very close to leaving Liverpool

Xherdan Choucairy’s move to Olympique Lyon should become a reality soon, according to information provided by Gianluca Di Marzio.

“Shaqiri is very close to moving to Lyon on a permanent transfer. The offer is six million euros. Liverpool expect eight, writes an Italian journalist on Twitter.

L’Equipe has already written about the prospect of the 29-year-old winger moving to France. This source suggested that the Reds expected a slightly higher sum for their player, which is €10m.

The Swiss actor himself wants to change the environment. As he admitted recently in an interview with “Corriere dello Sport”: – At the moment in my career it is important to be able to play regularly. And that wasn’t always the case over the past three seasons at Liverpool. I told the club that I felt ready for a new challenge. They accepted my order and are now browsing the menus.

Teams from almost all the major European leagues are looking forward to Shaqiri.

The player, who is considered a valuable substitute in Liverpool, made 63 appearances for the Anfield shirt. He had eight hits and nine assists.

During Euro 2020, the 29-year-old scored three goals, hitting twice against Turkey and once against Spain. The latter eliminated the Swiss in the quarter-finals after a penalty shootout competition.
