New Liverpool man Shaqiri has silverware in his sights

 

By Robert Jones

Liverpool have completed the signing of Switzerland international Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke.

The winger, currently on holiday after appearing at the World Cup, has agreed a "long-term" contract at Anfield.

It is believed to be a five-year deal, with Jurgen Klopp's Reds paying £13million to the Potters following their Premier League relegation.

"I'm very happy to be here. It's a huge club with big history, big players and a fantastic coach. So I'm really glad and happy to be here," Shaqiri told liverpoolfc.com.

"As a player you always want to be on the biggest stage in football. A few years ago I wanted to come too but it didn't happen. I'm really happy that now I'm finally here.

"I want to improve myself too, I want to be with the best and I want to win titles. That's what I'm here for."

Shaqiri becomes the Champions League finalists' third summer signing following the big-money arrivals of midfielders Naby Keita and Fabinho.
