Xherdan Shaqiri to wear number 23 shirt at Liverpool

Shaqiri could make his competitive debut for Liverpool at home to West Ham United on the opening weekend of the new Premier League season.

The 26-year-old flew into Liverpool on Thursday evening ahead of his medical on Friday after the Reds chose to activate the release clause in his Stoke City contract.

"Shaqiri becomes the Champions League finalists' third summer signing following the big-money arrivals of midfielders Naby Keita and Fabinho".

Today, Liverpool have completed the signing of Xherdan Shaqiri...

The Switzerland worldwide attracted interest from all across Europe after it emerged he had a very reasonable release clause in his contract worth £13m - according to the Liverpool Echo.

"I think the English phrase to explain the decision to sign Xherdan is a "no-brainer", Klopp told Liverpool's official website.

Jürgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, has followed Shaqiri from the player's spell at Bayern Munich and believes he will bolster his attacking options.

'As a player you always want to be on the biggest stage in football. I'm really happy that now I'm finally here.

'He joins a dressing room of really good lads and I know they will welcome him with open arms and help him settle and integrate quickly'. He helped Switzerland to the last 16 of the World Cup in Russian Federation, where they were beaten by Sweden.

The winger will undergo a medical with Liverpool on Friday as the deal moves closer to completion.

"I want to improve myself too, I want to be with the best and I want to win titles".

Shaqiri moved to Stoke in 2015 from Inter Milan and scored 15 goals in 92 appearances for the Potters, who were relegated from the Premier League last season.
