Roma to meet Shaqiri agent - report

Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini is set to meet Xherdan Shaqiri’s agent to establish whether the playmaker would be interested in a move.

The Bayern Munich youngster found playing time hard to come by at the Allianz Arena last term, with Mario Gotze, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller ahead in the pecking order.

As such, several of Europe’s best clubs have been enquiring about the Switzerland international.

Liverpool were thought to be one of the favourites to land the former Basel star, but respected Sky journalist Gianluca Di Marzio believes that a meeting between the Giallorossi and the player’s brother will take place soon.

Rudi Garcia’s men are thought to have baulked at Bayern’s asking price of €20m, but hope that they can persuade the youngster to try and force a move to the Italian capital, with a slight discount.
