Would be a great short term signing for us— FPL Billy Boy (@FPLBillyBoy) May 17, 2019
He has looked very good at times for Liverpool I’d take him.— Rob Waldon WHUFC (@RobWaldon) May 17, 2019
100% him and Arnie played well together at Stoke, time for a reunion— Tipler (@NickTipler) May 17, 2019
I’d take him yeah— Steve Brooker (@Hammer_Brooker) May 17, 2019
Shaqiri has been my favourite in the PL for ages - and wanted him from Stoke when they were relegated- I would be in my element if we could get him but it’s all a dream!!— Colette Bunce (@colettedeann) May 17, 2019
Yep— Luke Mavromatis (@fortyfifteen) May 17, 2019
West Ham already have an attack which has plenty of quality, but Shaqiri could make them more of a threat.
Shaqiri has linked up well with Hammers forward Marko Arnautovic at Stoke City, and he has the creativity to excite the London Stadium crowd.
Manuel Pellegrini is thought to have funds to spend this summer, so Shaqiri would be within West Ham’s price-range.
However, it is not yet known if the Hammers will go in for the Liverpool attacker, as Pellegrini is still weighing up his options ahead of the summer transfer window.
Shaqiri cost Liverpool £13 million to buy from Stoke (BBC Sport), and they would surely be looking to receive a similar sort of fee, if they were to sell.
