      What, you mean like the big boys came in for Alonso and Torres when they signed for us? You can't judge a player's ability off how many teams wanted to sign him. Its not as though many people can have a well developed opinion of this lad considering he plays in a league that doesnt get much coverage in this country BUT whenever he has played and people have been able to watch (i.e. european games etc) then he hasnt let down.  Would cost a big fee for him to come here but would still have him.

      I'm saying I don't know much about him simple as... But reports I'd heard people say he is a good player. Not debating someone I have no real idea of.

      But as for Torres and Alonso we are one of the big boys and had CL football at that point to offer anybody.. I'd certainly not say we are on a level with Galatasaray.

      if this guy slips through our fingers for just 8mill, I'll be very dissapointed. Going to Gala is not a big step forward for his career ad I fear that might not be the best decision. Every time I've watched him play, he was f**king marvellous (especially during the under-21 Euros).

      Im albanian and have taken a slight interest to those Swiss Albos at the youth levels and him along with Xhaka unless hampered by injuries and/or are complete fvking headcases will be class players....Shaqiri more than Xhaka, @ the very least I see Xhaka on the level of having a great career at a club like Aston Villa/Newcastle...Shaqiri is a special talent, has the ability to beat his man through skill and pace, his strength is underrated, their will be some growing pains with him adjusting to the EPL but hes perfectly able to....

      this is the type of guy that fits the criteria of what was promised by FSG....hes flying under the radar (comes at a good price), hes young has not yet been labeled world class but has all the potential to get that label....we have not done that like @ all, Enrique (was under the radar) and Suarez (world class potential?) have fit that in some way

      Just read that there may be a hiccup in Gala's signing of him.

      Some hurdle has arisen.

      Kinda frustrates me that I keep thinking we have to spend alot of money to sign quality players but I saww Shaqiri going for 9 million euros and Rafael van der Vaart joining Spurs for 8 million.

      Of course Adryan, in hindsight there are so many ( even ones like when Real took Xabi from us and let Sniedjer go for reportedly 15 m euros.) , and you hope that our scouting process start to pick up on these potential deals.

      I personally don't see him as a bargain at 9m. I think that's his proper value.

      Haha, well said.

      I really would've liked him to sign for us. I haven't seen too much of him but whenever I've watched him he's been fantastic. Especially against United.

      What's he done exactly to be worth more? I'm not Shaqiri aficionado but he seems like a typical young player, confident and has some flair about him.

      Not quite sure why this would equate to us missing out on a 'bargain' considering he hasn't done anything worthy of note to be classified as a top player or have the potential to be one. He has reportedly done well in the Swiss league and produced two good crosses in the Champions League.

      Shaqiri is exactly the type of a player that we should be pursuing, considering our restrictive spending policy, in compliance with the FFP rules.

      Certainly much wiser than spending 20 million on Downing.

      I wouldn't say his overrated, his still young with tons of potential.  But I saw this still open too, when his signed with bayern already.
