According to the football transfer rumours in British and Italian media, Lazio are eyeing move for Liverpool attacker Xherdan Shaqiri.
The 28-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Switzerland international joined Liverpool from Stoke City for a fee in the region of 14.7 million euros in July 2018. His contract expires in the summer of 2023.

The 28-year-old is considered to be one of the best attackers in Switzerland.
Xherdan Shaqiri has left his mark at the international stage after netting 22 goals in 82 senior appearances for the Switzerland national team.
Adding an attacker remains Lazio’s top priority this summer and Simone Inzaghi will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming days.
Shaqiri has been long term target of Inzaghi as the manager look to bolster his attacking options for the next season.

There is no doubt that Xherdan Shaqiri will take Lazio’s attack to a different level.
