Liverpool are closing in on the signing of Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri after meeting with his family in Switzerland to agree terms on a switch to Anfield.
Bayern Munich have reportedly given the Reds permission to discuss a deal for Shaqiri, who is currently representing his country at the World Cup.
And Liverpool are confident they will be able to conclude the deal quickly, with senior officials said to be on the verge of agreeing a five-year-deal worth £95,000-a-week.
Shaqiri has emerged as Liverpool's number one transfer target after they finally gave up on trying to lure Yevhen Konoplyanka and Adam Lallana.
Sky Italia says that while a fee is yet to be agreed on for Shaqiri, it should be a formality once he accepts Liverpool's contract offer.
The 22-year-old has made it clear he wants out of Bayern this summer, having slipped down the pecking order since his transfer from Basel.
