Xherdan Shaqiri will have a medical with Liverpool on Friday

Liverpool face Lazio competition for Shaqiri

Stoke City winger Shaqiri is one name under consideration at Lazio, according to Italian outlet Fantagazzetta, although making a move for the Switzerland global would put the club on a collision course with Liverpool.

Discussions over a £12 million deal are progressing well according to the report, and he could land at the Anfield club sooner rather than later. Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah are the undisputed first-choice attacking trio, but Shaqiri will provide an excellent rotation option as the Reds fight on multiple fronts next season.

The Switzerland worldwide is now on holiday following his World Cup appearance in Russian Federation which saw his country eventually eliminated by Sweden in the round of 16.

Regardless, everything seems to be in place for Shaqiri to become Klopp's third signing of the transfer window following the arrivals of Naby Keita and Fabinho.

A deal for Nabil Fekir is still a while away from being completed although French journalist Löic Tanzi has claimed that talks will resume after Jean-Michel Aulas made a promise to his skipper that he will continue negotiations with Liverpool.

The Reds start their new Premier League campaign against West Ham on August 12.

The Mirror says Liverpool face competition from Lazio for Shaqiri.
