Xherdan Shaqiri Liverpool 2020

Xherdan Shaqiri could leave Liverpool before Monday’s transfer deadline, with at least two clubs interested in signing the Swiss international.

Goalunderstands there is no fitness issue, though it is unclear at this stage which clubs have made approaches to sign the Liverpool attacker.

There have been rumours of interest from Germany, where Shaqiri spent three seasons with Bayern Munich earlier in his career before moving to Inter, Stoke City and, eventually, Liverpool

Shaqiri started last week’s third-round tie at Lincoln, scoring the opening goal with a stunning free-kick and generally impressing with his performance.

He had been expected to reprise that role against Arsenal on Thursday but was absent from the 18-man squad, with Harry Wilson a surprise starter instead.

Wilson himself has been linked with a move away, with Burnley tabling a bid for the Welsh international. The Clarets’ offer, though, is understood to fall some way short of Liverpool’s valuation for the 23-year-old forward.

Marko Grujic, another potential departure before transfer deadline day, also started against Arsenal, despite an offer from Borussia Moenchengladbach for the Serbian midfielder, but there was no place in the squad for striker Rhian Brewster, with Sheffield United edging closer to agreeing a £20million ($25.8m)deal for the England U21 international.

Crystal Palace and Brighton are also interested in the 20-year-old striker, for whom Liverpool will seek to secure a buy-back clause.

The Reds will also look to find loan clubs for midfielder Ben Woodburn, forward Liam Millar and defender Sepp van den Berg, all of whom featured for their under-21 side in the EFL Trophy against League Two side Tranmere on Tuesday night. Interest has been registered for all three,

In terms of incomings, the Reds should wrap up a deal to bring in 17-year-old goalkeeper Marco Pitaluga from Fluminense before the deadline.
