£100,000-a-week star set to complete Liverpool transfer in January

Liverpool recruited some players in the summer to help further their development and to compete in the League and Champions League.

Xherdan Shaqiri who was one of such additions arrived attracting the lowest transfer fee of £13.5m which also happened to be his release clause.

The former Bayern Munich player has had an immediate impact despite not featuring regularly for the Merseyside club.

He recently scored two goals and provided 3 assists in three matches before his cameo against Arsenal last weekend and was left out of the squad that visited Red Star Belgrade due to political reason. Liverpool fell to an unexpected two nil defeat in the process.

Despite his limited playing time, Jurgen Klopp seems pleased with the Swiss international’s effort whenever he has been selected.

So reports of a planned short loan to Galatasaray in turkey because the player is being underutilised is questionable. This is because the 27-year-old has featured 10 times already this season.

Also, questions asked of his work ethics has been answered with his plethora man of the match showing whenever he has featured.

Moreover the season is still young and only a little below one-third of games have been played in the premier League. Further handful of games are still expected in the champions league and FA cup from which the player will get ample opportunities to tire his legs.

So talk of a short loan to Turkey due to lack of game time sounds farfetched and questionable.
