Liverpool are set to sign Xherdan Shaqiri by the weekend, according to reports from The Times.

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.

Klopp is looking to add to his attacking options and Shaqiri is seen as the perfect extra player alongside the existing Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

The Switzerland international is currently on holiday following his World Cup appearance in Russia which saw his country eventually eliminated by Sweden in the round of 16.
