Liverpool have already confirmed that they have agreed a deal in principle for the transfer of Switzerland international attacking midfielder Xerdan Shaqiri in what will be a chance for the player to revive his career. Shaqiri became out of favor in the sights of Reds manager Jurgen Klopp and the Liverpool boss revealed already last season that he feels bad about not being able to give the player as much game time as he deserves to get. Shaqiri’s future at A field became clouded with so much uncertainty that he had to ask the club to allow him to make an exit before the closure of the current summer transfer window.

Lyon paid a total of £9.5 million to Liverpool to acquire the services of the player from the English Premier League giants after initially having an opening bid of around £6 million rebuffed. The player has since expressed his delight about the move being confirmed and it has now been revealed that he was approached by several clubs in the United States Major League Soccer but he rejected those approaches and decided that he would not be interested in moving to America.

The entire details in the deal that will take him to France have been concluded and all that’s left is for him to travel to the French country to have his medical and then sign all of the required documents that will make the transfer official. He will then follow that up by having a couple of training sessions with his new teammates before being passed fit to make his debut.

Shaqiri will be leaving the Reds as a true champion after winning both the English Premier League and the UEFA Champions League titles during his time at the Merseyside club.
