The attacking department of the Lazio squad needs quality additions this summer.
Lazio are linked with fresh move for Xherdan Shaqiri, according to the football transfer rumours in British and Italian media.
The 29-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Switzerland international was signed by Liverpool in July 2018 from Stoke City for a fee of 14.7 million euros. The 29-year-old has a contract until 2023 with the club.
The winger has banged in one goal and provided four assists in 22 matches this term on all fronts.
The 29-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in Switzerland.
Shaqiri has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 23 goals in 81 senior appearances for the Switzerland national team.
He is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Liverpool this summer and the list of suitors in the Switzerland international continues to grow.
The Eagles are looking to sign a winger and have identified the 29-year-old as potential transfer target.
The Switzerland international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of winger Lazio want to target in the summer transfer window.
Lazio are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
There is no doubt that Shaqiri will take Lazio’s attack to a different level. His tricky dribbling, fantastic shot and pace make him a nightmare for any defender to defend.
According to the report, “Lazio are eyeing Liverpool attacker Xherdan Shaqiri. Italian transfer expert Nicolo Schira reports Lazio will make a move for the winger. Schira claims that Shaqiri is one of Lazio’s top targets. Shaqiri joined Liverpool in the summer of 2018.”

The Eagles will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Shaqiri to join the club.
It is claimed that Liverpool are open to letting Shaqiri go.
Good signing for Lazio?
A wide player of Shaqiri’s technical quality will undeniably be a decent coup for Lazio if they can get him for a fair price.
A winger of Shaqiri’s ceiling will be a massive addition to Lazio squad as he will not only improve the overall quality of Lazio’s starting XI but also add some stability and variety to their attacking department.
How strong that interest is and whether Lazio will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
