Danny Mills believes Liverpool have overpriced Xherdan Shaqiri

Former Premier League star Danny Mills believes Liverpool are demanding a rather high asking price for Xherdan Shaqiri, who has been injured during the second half of the current season. The Switzerland international arrived at Anfield from Stoke City for £13m in 2018 and he provided qualify back-up off the bench as the Reds went on to win the Champions League crown.

He, however, has struggled to command regular gametime during the current campaign and he has been sidelined for half of the campaign with a nagging calf problem. As a result, he has been tipped to head through the exit door during the summer but the £28m price tag appears inappropriate for Mills, given the forward’s mixed fortunes.

He told Football Insider: “I cannot see it at that price. They paid £13million for him two years ago. Has he got better? No. He has stayed about the same and got older. Teams will not want to pay more than double what they paid for him. It does not make any sense. That is a bit of a strange one. I find it very odd if he went for that amount of money. Of course, he has had a lot of injuries of late so it would also be a risk.”

Aside from Shaqiri, Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren could also head through the exit door. Lallana’s contract expires at the end of the season and he has been fancied to remain in the Premier League with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City interested. Meanwhile, Lovren’s deal expires during the summer of 2021 and he is reportedly said to be attracting interest from AS Roma. Jurgen Klopp’s side are expected to demand around £20m for the Croatia international, who is currently their fourth-choice centre-back behind Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip.
