They are reportedly targeting two wide attackers - Moses Simon from Belgium outfit Gent as well as well-famed Xherdan Shaqiri who is available for a fee as low as £12 mil following his relegation with Stoke City last season.

Shaqiri is one of a number of players on Liverpool's radar this transfer window as Jurgen Klopp looks increase his options in the final third of the pitch.

"It's very simple for me", he said at his unveiling "First and foremost no player under contract will leave this club unless the club feel it is the right deal".

Having spent 10 years in the Premier League, a combination of Mark Hughes and laterly Paul Lambert were unable to save their top flight status.

"How could I possibly say this is a hit?" It's the best league with the best players, but I do not want to exclude anything.

Muguruza says top ranking no longer 'that important'
Stephens has won both head-to-head encounters, including the Grand Slam final debut for each at NY in September. Muguruza's last stand came at 4-all in the second set, a 13-minute game in which she held three break points.

Despite it being a poor season for the Stoke collective, Shaqiri still managed 8 goals and 7 assists in the Premier League and if he was surrounded by players of a higher quality, he could certainly improve on this figure.

The 26-year-old would bring plenty of experience with him and would have come up against the Liverpool boss - then at Borussia Dortmund - during his time playing for Bayern Munich in Germany.

Leicester City have been linked with many new signings this summer and the Swiss is the latest name, although their interest should be genuine.

The Switzerland worldwide would nearly certainly play back-up to Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, as well as whoever Liverpool bring in this summer.
