Xherdan Shaqiri completes transfer to Lyon


Liverpool forward Xherdan Shaqiri has completed a permanent move to Ligue 1 side Lyon

Shaqiri will cost Lyon a fee of 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.

The Switzerland  international secured winners' medals in the Premier League, Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup in his three seasons at Liverpool.

Although he was able to claim a semi-regular role in his first season at Anfield, injuries cost him a lot of playing time over the last two completed seasons, meaning he leaves after just 45 Premier League appearances.

Shaqiri chances of first-team football looked slimmer this season with Diogo Jota firmly entrenched as one of Jurgen Klopp's attacking options alongside regulars Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.
