Lyon signs Shaqiri for £9.5m

Ligue 1 side Lyon has signed Liverpool forward Xherdan Shaqiri for around £9.5m, marking a loss on the fee Liverpool paid Stoke for him in 2018, when they activated a £13.5m release clause in his contract.

Shaqiri secured winners’ medals in the Premier League, Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup in his three seasons with Liverpool, injuries cost him a lot of playing time over the last two completed seasons, having just 45 EPL appearances.

With Diogo Jota unshakeable as one of Jurgen Klopp’s attacking options this season, following regulars Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, Shaqiri’s  chances of making the first eleven became thin.

With Harvey Elliott, who started the 2-0 win over Burnley on Saturday, also emerging as an option for Klopp, it is Shaqiri who takes on a new challenge in France.
