Stoke want loan player in return for Shaqiri deal .
Stoke are reportedly considering asking Liverpool for a player on loan in return as part of any deal to take Xherdan Shaqiri to Anfield. The Mirror reports that Gary Rowett is still looking to add to his squad this summer and could utilise Liverpool’s interest in the Swiss winger. Rowett will be in the market for a replacement for Shaqiri, which could see them try and bring in Harry Wilson, who is a target for a wealth of Championship clubs. The report does not state specifically who Stoke would be looking to land, but you can imagine Wilson is one of the names likely to be discussed. Other players who look set to leave Liverpool include the likes of Danny Ward, Ben Woodburn and Danny Ings, but it is unlikely the latter would want to drop into the Championship. Shaqiri is being heavily tipped to make a move to Anfield this summer with Jurgen Klopp keen to add depth to his squad.
