Bayern Munich winger admits he would listen to Liverpool interest

Bayern Munich star Xherdan Shaqiri has admitted that he may be interested in a move to Liverpool in the summer.

Shaqiri, 22, burst onto the scene in 2010 with a superb long range strike for Switzerland against England, before his outstanding displays for FC Basel attracted interest from all over Europe, with teams queueing up to snap up Shaqiri - but eventually, it was Bayern Munich who won the race for his signature, paying just shy of £10m for his services in the summer of 2012.

But whilst Shaqiri continues to impress in his fleeting displays, he is caught in a logjam at the Allianz Arena, with established stars such as Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery, Thomas Muller and Mario Gotze all ahead of him in the pecking order under manager Pep Guardiola.

This lack of consistent first team football has led Shaqiri to consider his future at the club, and interest from Liverpool could entice the Swiss international into a switch to the Premier League. Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has been looking to strengthen his options on the flanks for some time, and Shaqiri admitted that he would listen to offers from the likes of Liverpool, Napoli and Juventus.

"When you hear these names, of course you have to listen to the offer, but there is nothing concrete. I cannot say anything to this. I am feeling good in Munich but as a player you have to listen, if one of these top clubs is interested," said Shaqiri.

Fellow Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach are also reportedly interest in adding Shaqiri to their existing Swiss contingent of manager Lucien Favre, midfielder Granit Xhaka and goalkeeper Yann Sommer, who will arrive in the summer, and Shaqiri admitted that the Bundesliga is the best league for him - though interest from the Premier League and Serie A is also appealing.

"I hear the interest from Borussia Monchengladbach for the first time. You have to ask Gladbach. I cannot say anything. Bundesliga is the best league for me, but I also like the Premier League and Serie A. In Serie A many teams have developed well with nice players," he said.
