Former Switzerland international Ramon Vega has told GiveMeSport that his fellow compatriot Xherdan Shaqiri would be a great addition to Liverpool this summer.
The Reds, who have been heavily linked with a £15m move for Shaqiri this summer, have been interested in the Swiss ace since the end of last season, as Brendan Rodgers looks to strengthen his already-potent attacking force.
The 22-year-old Bayern Munich star recently admitted that he may have to look elsewhere to get more playing time, with the Premier League among potential destinations. However, the German champions have offered Shaqiri a new deal for him to stay at the Allianz Arena.
Even with this, the playmaker is still contemplating his future, with a transfer to Anfield a possible outcome.
Former Spurs and Switzerland defender Vega believes it would be a great choice.
He told GiveMeSport: "He's already at a great team in Bayern Munich, and you can't forget that. But, there is no doubt he would be a great addition to the Premier League if a club like Liverpool manage to sign him.
"They are a top club, and he he has a great attitude to succeed whenever he plays."
Vega also believe Shaqiri can become one of the best players in the world very soon and has proven this with his exceptional performances at the World Cup, before Switzerland were consequently knocked out by Argentina last tuesday.
The 43-year-old retired footballer continued by addressing that although he has attracted great interest by top clubs, it would effectively mean that his price-tag will dramatically soar.
He added: "After his performances at the World Cup though, his price tag is going to have increased.
"He's shown he can play at the very highest level against the world's best players, and that is what clubs want in a player."
Shaqiri has poetically been given the nickname 'the Alpine Messi', because of his unpredictable nature on the ball, as well as being adept with both feet and clinical in front goal.
