Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp rejects Xherdan Shaqiri transfer offer from Roma.
Serie A side Roma have revealed an interest in the Switzerland international, Xherdan Shaqiri, but Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has declined Xherdan Shaqiri to leave Anfield in the January transfer window.
Xherdan Shaqiri has been a bit-part player for Liverpool this season. But, as the Reds are still looking to add three more trophies to their cabinet this season, and so Klopp doesn’t want to be short-handed.
The 28-year-old has scored just one goal in his only ten appearances in all competitions this campaign.
The Swiss winger suffered a couple of injuries in 2019, and only managed one 90 minute performance for Liverpool this season.
Roma wanted Shaqiri on a loan deal for the remainder of the season, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
But, Liverpool has rejected the approach.
Romano tweeted, “AS Roma asked for Xherdan Shaqiri on loan as Zaniolo replacement today.”
“Liverpool has denied to loan him out in January. No chance.”
