According to The Liverpool Echo, Liverpool want as much as £28 million as transfer fee for Xherdan Shaqiri.

A recent report in Fotomac claimed that Galatasaray want to sign Shaqiri from Liverpool in the summer transfer window.

The report in the Turkish publication claimed that the Reds were looking for €20 million (£18.20 million) for the winger, who was described as “very special” by manager Jurgen Klopp on the club’s official website in January 2020.

 

However, The Liverpool Echo has reported that Liverpool have placed a price-tag of £28 million on the former Stoke City winger - a potential profit of £15 million.
