There has been intense speculation surrounding the future of Xherdan Shaqiri in the last period.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Galatasaray are looking to loan Liverpool winger Xherdan Shaqiri.
The Switzerland international joined Liverpool from Stoke City for a fee in the region of 14.7 million euros in August 2018. His contract expires in the summer of 2023.
Shaqiri has played 39 times for Liverpool since signing from Stoke City, scoring 7 goals and creating 5 assists.
The 28-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in Switzerland.
His record for Switzerland is also impressive. Xherdan Shaqiri has scored 22 goals in 80 matches for Switzerland at senior level.
Shaqiri is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Liverpool this winter and the list of suitors in the Switzerland international continues to grow.
Fatih Terim wants to sign a new winger and Xherdan Shaqiri is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The Switzerland international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of winger Terim wants to target in the winter transfer window.
There is no doubt that Xherdan Shaqiri will take Galatasaray’s attack to a different level.
According to Tribalfootball, “Galatasaray are ready to pounce for Liverpool attacker Xherdan Shaqiri. Fanatik says Gala management are confident of tempting the Switzerland international to Turkey next month. The Istanbul giants believe the prospect of regular first team football will tempt Shaqiri, who has seen his playing chances at Anfield further diminish with the confirmed arrival of Takumi Minamino from RB Salzburg. Having missed out on a deadline deal in August for Shaqiri, Gala now see their chance and are preparing for talks with Liverpool over the attacking midfielder. Gala hope to take Shaqiri on an initial six-month loan.”

If Galatasaray are genuinely interested, a deal would not be impossible to complete.
A move to Galatasaray is exactly what Shaqiri needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.
How strong that interest is and whether Galatasaray will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
