Not only has Xherdan Shaqiri ruled out a shock Liverpool exit, but the Switzerland international suggests that he'll get 'much, much better' as he adapts to life on Merseyside.

Italian publication TransferMarketWeb claimed in midweek that Turkish side Galatasaray want to sign Shaqiri on a half-season loan in January.

The Liverpool attacker, who earns £90,000 per week at Anfield [Total Sportek], has only started three games for the Reds since his £13 million move from Stoke City.

Despite struggling for regular football, the former Bayern Munich winger has enjoyed a very decent start to life with the Premier League giants.

 

And Shaqiri, who says he's going nowhere, suggests that fans can expect to see a lot more from him soon.

He told the club's official website: “The process is going very well - I think you can see that also on the pitch. I’m very happy to be here and I’m settling in very well, but I think it’s going to be much, much better the longer I settle in. I’m very happy.

“Everyone helps you, on the pitch and off the pitch. Off the pitch I didn’t need a lot of help because I was living here [in England] already for three years and when I needed some help on the pitch, all the players helped me very good."

Shaqiri is certainly a very fine talent and one that can help in-form Liverpool reach the next level under Jurgen Klopp.

If a player of that calibre is ready to come off the bench then it's a magnificent indictment for the strength of the Reds' squad.

The 27-year-old isn't perfect, and he can be inconsistent, but he can also be absolutely fantastic and his claim that he can get a lot better ought to excite the Anfield faithful.
