Shaqiri joined the Reds on a five-year contract at the beginning of the 2018-19 season. But fighting for regular minutes due to the presence of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah in broad positions, and some of his fitness issues.
Two or three clubs are interested in Xherdan Shaqiri
According to the brother and agent of Xherdan Shaqiri, Liverpool fights with its hands to keep at re-opening the transfer window.

Shaqiri joined the Reds on a five-year contract at the beginning of the 2018-19 season. But fighting for regular minutes due to the presence of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah in broad positions, and some of his fitness issues. “I think there will be many suggestions for Xherdan in the summer,” Erdin told reporters. “As early as January, there was a real interest from two or three clubs. These – their names have already been received in various media – will knock again.”
Xherdan deserves more praise
Despite never being a first-team fixture at Anfield, Shakiri has played a role in some memorable victories at one time in the club. His 20-minute alignment secured a win over Manchester United last season. While he also assisted Georginio Wijnaldum’s second goal in a 4-0 Champions League victory over Barcelona. Erdin Shaqiri believes that the winger deserves more praise, but he admits that there were complicating factors. “Xherdan’s situation in Liverpool is not easy because of a few minor injuries that lasted longer than we thought,” he added. “Jürgen Klopp is negotiating with him about more gaming practice, we have to wait and see”. I think Xherdan deserves much more. He was unlucky with injuries, but every time he could play again, he did his job and changed the game.”
In November, Klopp insisted that he had no desire to see Shaqiri leave, and he considered him an essential member of his squad. “When I am with him, he is absolutely happy and wonderful here, and speculation is speculation. We can’t change anything,” said Klopp, answering a question about the rumors connecting him with leaving. “Of course, He has a future, but we’re talking about the future always until the season ends. So then maybe the player will come to me or not, but no one thinks about it. This season he is a crucial player for us. “Shaqiri made one appearance in the Premier League in the 2020 year. Coming on as a substitute in the 91st minute in a 1-0 victory against Tottenham on January 11th.
