Xherdan Shaqiri responds to Liverpool speculation

Stoke City sign Super Eagles midfielder Etebo

All the latest Liverpool transfer rumours, with updates on moves for Nick Pope, Xherdan Shaqiri and Jasper Cillessen.

Barca do not want to sell Cillessen, who has been linked with Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Napoli, but they will cash in on the Dutch goalkeeper if they receive a lucrative offer for him this summer.

However, Paul Lambert's men were relegated after a ten-year stay in the top flight, with the 26-year-old the most highly-prized asset in the squad.

Meanwhile Liverpool's move for Nabil Fekir is off according to Lyon.

But speaking to Swiss outlet Blick Sport while on worldwide duty with the national team, Shaqiri was asked about the rumours surrounding his future.

When asked what he though about Liverpool as a club he responded by laughing and asking the interviewer why he was talking about Liverpool.

Shaqiri told Blick, as translated by The Mirror, when asked about Liverpool: "I can't tell you anything right now, I think my agents take care of my future".

He will hope to have a greater impact with Switzerland as they get their World Cup campaign under way on June 17 against Brazil, before facing Serbia and Costa Rica on June 22 and 27 respectively.

Liverpool are leading the race for Stoke City attacker Xherdan Shaqiri, sources close to the player have told ESPN FC.

"I am focusing on the national team right now".

Switzerland have been drawn in Group E at the upcoming tournament in Russian Federation alongside Brazil, Serbia and Costa Rica.
