      Was never giddy about Shaqiri from the moment the initial rumor that came out, but i have full trust in Klopp. When i did a little "scouting" on YT he is a very good dribbler, can hit a mean free kick and puts in some sweet crosses, so his skills seem to fit / complement us well.

      When Klopp looks over his shoulder to his bench i'll be a lot happier that he has Shaquiri as first back up rather than Solankie.

      It just means we will not have the revert from the original plan if injury and rotation occur.

      We had nobody Klopp could trust in the CL final when Salah went off, if we had Shaquiri he would have been coming on and we could at least maintain our shape and direct threat.

      Putting aside misgivings about his attitude - who do you want coming off the bench, Solanke/Ings/Woodburn or Shaqiri? Easy answer for me and for this money it's a no brainer. Good quality backup to the front three.

      I trust in Klopp to have talked to Shaqiri before we went ahead with the bid and to be able to get the best out of him. None of us know the guy personally so we can only judge on his football, and I think it's obvious he's a better backup to our attack than anyone we have right now.

      Maybe they are waiting to unveil him at the same time as Maguire, Butland and Fekir.

      Unless Shaqiri is our alternative to Fekir... (which I believe is the case). Which means we will be adding another winger... Dembele anyone???

      I’m all for the “first team players rather than squad players” idea but realistically who could we bring in to improve on the front three?’ There are very few players in the world that we could say this about and they are probably out of our reach.

      Shaqiri to me is a textbook Jürgen Klopp signing. I’m sure he mentioned a while back about players that were confident and - to paraphrase - almost cocky about their ability. Also players who had maybe not been given a chance and had something to prove. I think his great ability as a manager/coach is to get the best out of these type of players, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mane prime examples, maybe Salah to a lesser extent.

      As people have mentioned, he is a far better option to come off the bench than what we had last season. Do I expect him to be settled and happy as a squad player? Absolutely not.

      Strenuous links to zaha... would Zaha and Shaqiri be good as the back up to our front 3?

      He’s not an alternative to Fekir, he’s a completely different player for a start. If we were looking at an Alternative to Fekir then it will be for someone who is a similar player to Fekir to fill the 10 role. Shaqiri first and foremost isn’t a 10.

      On a separate note, how long does it take to do a medical and announce this?

      You can't actually base him not being an alternative because of playing style. We could easily push another player into attacking midfielder role similar to Fekir. Remember when we started to use Robinson and it freed Milner to go forward more?
      Wouldn't surprise me if we got a new right back and pushed TAA forward.
      I can't put anything past FSG. Sold Suarez got Balotelli and Lambert. Sold Coutinho, got VVD and Kieta. Messed up Fekir medical, get Shaqiri?
      Nobody will know yet.
