The 23 year old has struggled to retain a foothold in the Allianz Arena starting eleven under Pep Guardiola and looks likely to leave the German giants with the former FC Basel man said to be available for a very reasonable £12m.

Juventus are said to be keen on bringing in wide-man on a loan deal but Bayern Munich may prefer an outright sale with Guardiola seemingly more than able to cope without the attacker who has made just three Bundesliga starts this season.

Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers may be looking to strengthen his attack and given that Raheem Sterling is being converted from a winger into a striker there is perhaps scope for the addition of Shaqiri.

Xherdan Shaqiri was considered one of the hottest prospects in European football but is danger of stagnating at Bayern Munich.

The Swiss international netted a hat-trick against Honduras at the 2014 World Cup finals.
