Lazio fight Liverpool for Shaqiri

Lazio are ready to challenge Liverpool for the signing of Stoke City winger Xherdan Shaqiri.

The Switzerland international is no stranger to Serie A, having played for Inter from January to June 2015, but it was an ill-fated experience.

According to Calciomercato.it, there could be another opportunity, as Lazio are showing interest in the Stoke City wide man.

His price-tag is in the region of €15m and Liverpool are certainly in pole position so far.

Shaqiri is now 26 years old and is fresh from a World Cup with one goal and one assist in four appearances for Switzerland.

The salary might also prove to be a problem, as he commands €3m per year.

Last season, Shaqiri scored eight goals with seven assists in 36 Premier League games.
