Liverpool and Switzerland international midfielder, Xherdan Shaqiri has been linked with a summer exit from Anfield this summer and it has continued to look highly inevitable that he will not be a Liverpool player next season. The winger was signed by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp from Stoke City some seasons ago and has since been a bit-part player at the club.

Although he is said to be an important player in the squad, he has not been able to nail a starting spot in the team and has reportedly revealed his desire to seek first-team opportunities elsewhere.

The signing of Diogo Jota from Wolverhampton Wanderers last summer by Liverpool further dampened Shaqiri's hopes of becoming a regular starter at the club and he was further reduced to a bench player as well.

Even for the period Jota has been injured this season, the Switzerland international star has still not been a favored option to start games this season under Klopp. The German manager has instead desired to field the trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino. Liverpool have not received any offers for Shaqiri yet, but the Reds are bracing themselves for a couple of bids from different clubs who would want to sign the former Stoke City man in the summer.

Everton were linked with him last summer and if those rumors were true then, the Toffees may well revive their interestand even though Liverpool would be reluctant to sell such a player to their Merseyside rivals, they may not have any option but to allow him to move to Goodison Park, especially if he hands in a transfer request.

Shaqiri has won the Premier League and UEFA Champions League titles with Liverpool during his time at Anfield and would want more success with the Reds but only if he is guaranteed more playing time.
