Xherdan Shaqiri wants to depart Liverpool this summer transfer window in search of regular first-team football, according to the latest reports.
Turkish newspaper Fotomac (via Sport Witness) claim that Galatasaray are interested in landing the Swiss international and they also report that the player wants to make a transfer away from Anfield as he is not happy with the lack of matches that he has played in under German tactician Jurgen Klopp.
Shaqiri arrived at the Anfield outfit in the summer transfer market of 2018, as the Reds paid around £13 million to relegated Stoke City for the forward.
Whilst he has certainly made impacts in big games for the Reds, such as scoring twice against league rivals Manchester United or assisting his teammate Gini Wijnaldum for his famous goal versus La Liga giants Barcelona, the Swiss star has by no means been a regular in Liverpool line up.
According to a recent report from Turkey, Xherdan would be willing to join the Istanbul-based outfit if they secure Champions League football.
For £13 million, Xherdan has been a good signing and he has made some telling contributions in a Liverpool shirt.
However, with the likes of Divock Origi, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah all ahead of him in terms of the wide-forward variants, game time has been limited for the Swiss star.
Galatasaray apparently want to take Xherdan on loan with an option to buy and that could be something Jurgen Klopp’s side look to change.
