According to a report in the Daily Mail, Newcastle have contacted the representatives of Liverpool winger Xherdan Shaqiri to sound out a summer move.
The 28-year-old has featured sparingly this season for Jurgen Klopp’s league-topping side, leading to speculation that he’ll be moved on this summer.
The Swiss international has made just 10 appearances in all competitions, including only 2 starts in the Premier League. The winger has played just 1 minute for Liverpool since starting a 2-0 win against Watford at Anfield.
Shaqiri (pictured above) was the topic of transfer speculation in January with both Roma and Sevilla making inquiries. However, Klopp kept the stocky winger at Anfield for cover.
He did make 30 appearances last season after a surprising £13.5m move from relegated Stoke City in the summer. However, this season he’s struggled with injury and a lack of appearances.
Newcastle were linked with Shaqiri during the summer of 2015 while he was at Inter Milan. He ended up making a £15m move to Stoke while Newcastle brought in Graham Carr favorite Florian Thauvin from Marseille.
Shaqiri is a talented player when he’s switched on but was often a frustrating figure at Stoke. He’s definitely got moments of class in him and could be a decent option for Newcastle this summer.
