White Hart Lane side chase Swiss international.
Tottenham are planning a loan for underused Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri according to the Daily Star.
The 23 year old Swiss international, who netted a hat-trick at the 2014 World Cup finals, has struggled to retain a foothold in Pep Guardiola’s first team set-up and may be ready to quit the Bundesliga side in pursuit of regular action.
Liverpool had been keen on signing the former FC Basel man over the summer but Shaqiri opted to fight for his place at Bayern Munich, a fight that now looks a little futile.
Shaqiri started 13 Bundesliga fixtures in his first season at the club and this reduced to just ten last term and thus far this campaign he has managed just three starts and was subbed on two of thos occasions.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino could well do with fresh effective options in the final third as he looks to secure a top four finish and Shaqiri may see a short term move as a good shop window for his services with Juventus and Galatasaray also said to be tracking the wide-man.
