Out-of-favour Liverpool duo set to leave club in January on permanent basis

By | October 19, 2020

Liverpool will reportedly attempt to sell highly-rated attacking duo Harry Wilson and Xherdan Shaqiri, when the transfer window will be re-opened in winter.

The Premier League giants were open to offers for both attacking players during the recent summer window, however, no interested teams were willing to meet their price tag.

Celtic and Burnley had been rumoured with Wilson before both ultimately pulling out of the race, while Xherdan Shaqiri missed the recent EFL Cup loss to the Gunners amid rumours that he was in advanced talks over a move away.

The Daily Star claims that the Mersyeside Reds wanted permanent sales for both players and were not ready to consider loan bids, making a move either abroad or to an EFL team  highly unlikely this summer.

Instead, the Merseyside Reds will revive their attempts to sell the fringe duo during the winter transfer window, with head-coach Jurgen Klopp not considering either a vital member of his team.

Neither Shaqiri or Wilson have featured in the English top-tier for Liverpool so far this campaign, while the latter spent last term on loan at Bournemouth.
