The Switzerland international is poised to depart Anfield this summer in search of regular football, with news coming this week. Xherdan Shaqiri appears to be on his way out of Liverpool this summer, with Napoli and Lazio among the clubs interested in signing him.
Following his strong performances at Euro 2020, the Serie A duo have been in contact with the 29-year-representatives, old’s according to Goal, and both are anxious to complete a move before the conclusion of the summer transfer season. They are likely to encounter competition from clubs in Spain, including Sevilla and Villarreal.
Last summer, Liverpool planned to sell, but interest from Germany and Italy failed to materialize into firm proposals. Anfield sources, on the other hand, believe that a deal can be struck at the correct price this time. Shaqiri’s deal at Anfield is still guaranteed for another year, albeit the club has the option to extend it until 2023 if they so desire.
Sevilla and Villarreal have enquired about possible loan deals, but have been told that Liverpool would prefer to sell, while Napoli and Lazio have contacted Shaqiri’s representatives. It is known that the player would welcome a move to Italy.
