West Ham must swoop for reportedly available Liverpool ace Xherdan Shaqiri

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini will be keen to bolster his attacking ranks this summer, in a bid to help his side push for a top seven finish in the Premier League table next season.

With this in mind, the Hammers should consider a move for Liverpool ace Xherdan Shaqiri, who could be available for transfer this summer, according to a report from the Daily Mail.

The 27-year-old joined the Reds from Stoke City last summer for around £13 million, according to BBC Sport, but he has failed to impress at Anfield.

He hasn’t really been given ample opportunity to shine, however, and a move to West Ham might be just what he needs in order to reinvigorate his career.

Shaqiri, who currently earns £80,000 per week according to Spotrac, is a real talent, and he undoubtedly has what it takes to be a hit at the London Stadium.

The Swiss star possesses exceptional technique, and his final delivery into the box would undoubtedly help the Hammers improve upon the potency of their play in the final third.

Shaqiri also has a wealth of experience of playing at the very highest level, and that could prove to be invaluable for West Ham next season.

Quite how much Liverpool would be prepared to sell the 27-year-old for remains to be seen, but the Hammers must test the Merseyside outfit’s resolve nonetheless.
