Basel and Switzerland talent Xherdan Shaqiri has been linked to Europe's top clubs and his agent admits “we have spoken to Roma.”
The 19-year-old attacking midfielder is a Swiss international born in Kosovo who has been inspirational so far in the Under-21 European Championship.
“We have spoken to Roma director Walter Sabatini,” agent Ulisse Savini told ForzaRoma.info.
“At the moment we are just at the level of a chat, but there is definitely interest from Roma. Sabatini knows Shaqiri very well and recently enquired after him.
“I believe his price-tag is between €6m and €10m, depending on what Basel ask for. As we told Sabatini during our chat, Shaqiri is enthusiastic about a club like Roma.
“He wants to feel the giddy heights of a top side and Roma have all the characteristics he is looking for.”
Among others, he has been linked with Liverpool, Manchester United and Fiorentina.
Shaqiri is a regular in the senior Swiss side, but is currently lighting up the Under-21 European Championship.
