Xherdan Shaqiri wants to leave Liverpool after failing to get sufficient game time under Jurgen Klopp, with Galatasaray keen on the winger, according to reports.

Shaqiri moved to Liverpool in the summer of 2018 having been relegated from the Premier League with Stoke.

The Switzerland international has been a solid back-up option for Reds boss Klopp but a combination of a string of small injuries and his status down the pecking order have limited his game time.

Shaqiri was linked with a move to Roma in the January transfer window, while Sevilla have also been credited with interest but Fotomac (via Sport Witness) claims that long-term admirers Galatasaray are readying an offer.

The Turkish side’s manager, Fatih Terim, is reportedly keen to bring Shaqiri to the club and will make a move if his side win the Super Lig this season.

What’s more, the source claims that Shaqiri will not need convincing if the Turkish side earn their place in next season’s Champions League and he is ready to leave Anfield after struggling for game time.

Shaqiri came up with several important moments for Liverpool in his first season, including his brace which led the Reds to victory against Manchester United in what proved to be Jose Mourinho’s last game as United boss.

This season, however, the 28-year-old has only made 10 appearances in all competitions and only six in the Premier League, his only goal coming against Everton in December.

In other news, Liverpool midfielder Curtis Jones has revealed the important role James Milner has played in his rise to the first team this term.
