3 Reasons Why Stoke City’s Xherdan Shaqiri Would Have Done Wonders For Liverpool
Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp will be happy with the progress they have made this season, standing just 6 points off the top of the table, 16 games into the season. The manager will be happy with the individual performances of the side recently but he would love to have more quality at his disposal at this crunch time. So it comes as a blow for Liverpool after reports revealed that former boss Brendan Rodgers could have landed a European star a couple of years ago.
Stoke City attacker Xherdan Shaqiri moved to England from Bayern Munich back in 2014 and is now a regular starter for the Potters this season. However, he has recently revealed that Liverpool were close to signing him before his Stoke move and that Bayern Munich blocked his move and wanted him to stay at the club. Though he is injury prone, he is a top class talent and here are three reasons why he is a perfect fit for Liverpool:
- His eye for goal:
Liverpool, with 41 goals, are currently the top scorers in the Premier League this season and are easily one of the most exciting sides in the competitions. They also have the highest number of goal-scorers in the squad making them a strong team and Shaqiri’s goal scoring prowess would have only made him more deadly. The Swiss international can score goals from different angles and ranges and has already scored some world class goals for club and country. Surely, he would have made this Liverpool side all the more dangerous.
