      Not convinced to be honest, agreed we need someone who can play out wide etc as back up but for me he didn't stand out in a poor stoke team

      Really?

      I thought he was head and shoulders above every Stoke player last season.

      When you consider that Moses guy that has been linked to us is £10 million then Shaqiri would be a steal for £12 million. Premier league experience, has pace and can play left,right or behind the striker. I think Klopp could get a tune out of him, if he's willing to sit on the bench and wait for a chance that is.

      Agreed mate I think Klopp would get the best out of him he still has more potential to unlock.

      Not convinced about that but wouldn't be saying much to be fair, not sure if playing second fiddle would suit him, just my opinion but think we need better

      Shaqiri? No thanks. We need better and cannot see him as a fit here. Shakira? yes, please.

      Shaqiri for only £12 million.

      Yes please.

      Doesn’t have the right attitude to cut it at a top club with expectations IMO. There’s a reason he didn’t cut it at Bayern Munich or Inter Milan and ended up at Stoke.

      He’s no where near the level of Salah or Mane and he wouldn’t be prepared to fight for his place.

      Even at Stoke he’s hardly been anything special; very inconsistent, goes missing game after game and will only perform at a good level from time to time.

      True his attitude is suspect didn't he publicly slate his fellow team mates recently?

      There's no place for arrogance at this club.

      But I do think with a better attitude he would be at a bigger club he has ability.

      He certainly carries a bit of cargo
      Must be all that Swiss chocolate.
      I understand those saying  we should be looking at better but personally speaking I think he would be a good addition & under klopp I'm sure there wouldn't be any attitude problems seeing as the gaffer doesn't strike me as being someone who takes sh*t from players

      Yeah he slated the stoke team for not being at his level and said not even Ronaldinho could make them look better.
      Granted he’s probably right, but it’s something he didn’t need to say.

      Think I’d rather that Simon Moses lad. Know nothing about him other than he’s rapid. But, he’s 22 so has a lot of time to develope and would be prepared to fight for his place. But then again, Shaqiri could turn out to be a relatively low cost gamble that could potentially pay off if he knuckles down. Ultimately they both would initially be signed as cover and cover is something we are really lacking.

      Think I’d rather see us concentrate on our key targets first though....hopefully Oblak :laugh:

      To be honest, none. Not for the amount the relegated clubs would expect to recuperate, and not for players who would be unlikely to thrive as merely squad players. I don't think Butland is the answer for us (I'd rather Pope, and unfortunately we let Everton claim Pickford). Shaqiri did surprisingly well for Stoke last year in the systems they played, however, he's not going to be content being just a dude we'd consider bringing on for the last 20 min of a game, for there's no way we'd start him in our system with his lack of pace and defensive input. He'd be better suited playing week in week out for a lesser team, perhaps as a replacement for Mahrez at Leicester if they'd rather an option in that position who can hold it up more rather than solely counter attack.

      Mawson from Swansea would also be better suited to a mid-table team than ours. There are much better options available than him for the price other teams would be prepared to pay. And Rondon, Rodriguez, and Hegazi? As useful as they'd also be for lower premier league clubs, we'd be better off blooding our own youngsters than signing them.

      So yeah, slim pickings. We'd be better off going after some of these departing Sporting Lisbon players if we can pull it off over the other vultures.
