Even Crystal Palace fans are predicting that Xherdan Shaqiri is going to end up at West Ham United.

Stoke City’s relegation from the Premier League has left a number of their players seemingly heading for the exit door, and Shaqiri’s departure now looks inevitable.

Reports in the Liverpool Echo suggested that Shaqiri has a £12 million release clause in his contract, now Stoke have been relegated and there has been much talk about where the Swiss international could end up.

Xherdan Shaqiri of Stoke City warms up prior to the Premier League match between Stoke City and Tottenham Hotspur at Bet365 Stadium on April 7, 2018 in Stoke on Trent, England.

Palace have been one of the clubs touted as a possible buyer of Shaqiri.

But Palace fans believe that West Ham is the most likely destination for Shaqiri.

If Shaqiri was to end up at the London Stadium, he would add to David Moyes’ side’s creative options for next campaign.

Marko Arnautovic has carried much of West Ham’s attacking threat, but Shaqiri’s arrival could help take the weight off his shoulders.

Shaqiri and Arnautovic have already previously linked up at Stoke, and they were successful during their time together.

West Ham confirmed their Premier League survival at the weekend, when they beat Leicester City.
