The advisor of Liverpool target Xherdan Shaqiri has said all talks with other clubs are "on ice" as they discuss the player's future with Bayern Munich.
Shaqiri, 22, moved to Bayern in 2012, but has played just 43 games, including 17 Bundesliga matches last season, for the club since that switch from Basel. Out of contract in a year, the attacking midfielder has been linked with a transfer with Liverpool and Juventus.
However, the player's advisor and brother, Erdin, told Sport Bild Plus that Bayern would get the first opportunity to dictate where the promising youngster's future lies even if he left the door open to a departure.
"There are currently no talks with other clubs. Our main partner in talks is Bayern Munich, and we have put talks with other clubs on ice.
"It has been made clear to us that Xherdan has a good standing among the Bayern bosses. However, it remains to be seen how the talks go with Bayern, and whether an optimal solution can be found."
