Newcastle fans must be excited at the prospect of new owners coming in and investing in the squad.
The 26-year-old has had injury concerns during his time at Stoke City so far in his career, but when he is in form, the Switzerland international is unstoppable.
Shaqiri has scored two goals and provided four assists in 10 Premier League appearances for Stoke so far this season.
During the 2016-17 campaign, the former Bayern Munich winger scored scored four goals and provided two assists in 21 league games for the Potters.
In 2015-16, the Swiss scored three goals and provided six assists in 27 Premier League matches for Stoke.
Shaqiri would take Newcastle to the next level and make them strong top-10 contenders, and the Magpies should make a move for the former FC Basel star.
Stoke are struggling at the moment and could be facing the threat of relegation from the Premier League as the season progresses, and the 26-year-old winger could be tempted to move to St. James’ Park in the January transfer window or next summer.
Stoke paid Inter Milan a transfer fee of £12 million, as reported by BBC Sport, in the summer of 2015 in order to secure the services of Shaqiri, who will play for Switzerland at the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia next summer.
