Leeds fans react as Liverpool reportedly ready to sell 29-year-old for bargain price

Liverpool are reportedly willing to cash in on playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri for a bargain £12.75million this summer. That is according to a report from Sky Sports, who say Liverpool are looking to bring in some cash for new signings. Leeds fans have discussed Liverpool star Shaqiri on Twitter.

Shaqiri, 29, has managed just 63 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions for the Merseyside club since joining them in 2018. An average of 21 a season, injury has not helped the 96-time Switzerland international. Now, he appears on his way out of the club.

What are Leeds fans saying about Liverpool star Shaqiri?

Reports say Shaqiri can go on the cheap and Leeds need an attacking midfielder. The Whites require a player that can add competition in the middle of the park – with Tyler Roberts and Rodrigo previously being used as a number 10. Out wide, Leeds could also do with cover.

Helder Costa and Ian Poveda are some way behind Jack Harrison and Raphinha. Leeds fans have responded to reports that Shaqiri is available on the cheap. Many believe the Reds ace would be good. One fan suggested Shaqiri is “perfect for Leeds”. Another wants Victor Orta on the phone.
