VIDEO: £20m Tottenham Hotspur linked Shaqiri scores outstanding backheel goal

Tottenham Hotspur linked attacker Xherdan Shaqiri netted an impressive backheel in European Championship qualifying.

Xherdan Shaqiri once again displayed his impressive talent, netting a backheel to leave the opposition goalkeeper stranded.

The Swiss sensation, who scored a World Cup hat-trick against Honduras, netted twice in a 4-0 rout of Lithuania.

Shaqiri's Switzerland are in England's Euro 2016 qualifying group, but the victory only takes them up third, six points behind the runaway Three Lions.

The 22-year-old also scored a header from close range, following up an own goal and a strike from defender Fabian Schar.

Shaqiri has made no secret of his openness to consider offers away from Bayern Munich, after failing to hold down a regular starting spot in the side.

The Metro reported this week that Tottenham Hotspur were ready to make a £20 million offer for the midfielder, who has previously been strongly linked with Liverpool.

The versatile midfielder would be a real asset to Spurs, but his arrival would signal the need to have a clearout of several fringe players who already struggle for first team football.
