Xherdan Shaqiri has signed for Liverpool – here are some of his best moments from last season

Shaqiri becomes Liverpool’s third summer signing after Fabinho and Naby Keita joined the club and he is keen for the Premier League season to get underway.

“I’m very happy to be here. It’s a huge club with big history, big players and a fantastic coach. So I’m really glad and happy to be here,” Shaqiri told Liverpoolfc.com.

“As a player you always want to be on the biggest stage in football. A few years ago I wanted to come too but it didn’t happen. I’m really happy that now I’m finally here.

“I want to improve myself too, I want to be with the best and I want to win titles. That’s what I’m here for.”

The 26-year-old, who was part of the Switzerland squad which reached the round of 16 at the World Cup in Russia, joined Stoke in 2015 from Inter Milan before going on to make 84 league appearances for the club.
