    Switzerland’s Xherdan Shaqiri seals victory over Serbia

    Liverpool have signed Switzerland forward Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City, after triggering his £13.5m release clause.

    The 26-year-old joined the Potters from Inter Milan in August 2015 for a club record fee of £12m.

    He was Stoke’s top scorer last season with eight goals as they were relegated from the Premier League.

    Shaqiri scored against Serbia at the World Cup as Switzerland reached the last 16, where they lost to Sweden.

    In June, he was reported as saying he wanted to leave Stoke and sign for a Premier League club.

    Liverpool have already strengthened their squad this summer with the £39m signing of Monaco midfielder Fabinho, and the arrival of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig.
