Leicester City are reportedly set to challenge Liverpool for the Stoke City man's signature.

Liverpool are among the Premier League clubs interested in signing Xherdan Shaqiri following Stoke City's relegation.

Granted, if Liverpool make it deep into the Champions League again next season, Klopp will need all his players for squad rotation and to make an impact from the bench.

And Moreno replied: "You just essentially made a case".

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.

Space.com reported that 2008 TC3 was spotted some 19 hours before impact while 2008 TC3 was discovered just a few hours prior. Asteroids are small remnants of violent collisions in the solar system's history and formed around 4.5 billion years ago.

Shaqiri, meanwhile, is thought to have a release clause in his Stoke contract that allows him to leave for around £12million but his signing would halt the minutes potentially available to Wilson.

"For Shaqiri, it would be the ideal move, to move to Liverpool".

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

The winger provided 8 goals and 7 assists last season but it wasn't enough to prevent Stoke from being relegated to the Championship having finished 19th in the Premier League last campaign.

The Reds have one of the most formidable front three's in Europe but they need back-up for the likes of Mo Salah and Sadio Mane and it looks like Klopp is eyeing Shaqiri an an alternative to Nabil Fekir, with Lyon digging their heels in over the Frenchman.
