The Inter Milan star was checking out Stoke at The Britannia Stadium.
They won the final game of the season 6-1 last term and are slowly but surely losing their ‘hardman’ tag.
Instead, Stoke have recently been snapping up some gifted technical players. Bojan, Ibrahim Afellay and Marko Arnautovic all examples of this point.
It now looks like they are about to bring in another.
All summer Stoke have been linked with Inter Milan star Xherdan Shaqiri.
The Swiss international is seemingly for sale at the club. However, Stoke had a £12 million bid for the player accepted in July but, according to The Guardian, Shaqiri decided against the move after much deliberation.
Perhaps, he has had a change of heart.
It would certainly appear that he is at least considering the move as he was spotted at The Britannia Stadium this afternoon as Stoke took on Liverpool at home.

Whether this means a deal is close, or whether Mark Hughes told him to come and just take a look, remains to be seen.
Regardless, Stoke fans should be getting excited.e
