Xherdan Shaqiri saw his playing time restricted at Liverpool last season.
The winger represented Switzerland at Euro 2020 and had then stated a decision on his future would be made with his agent after the tournament.
According to La Lazio Siamo Noi, Lazio are interested in the 29-year-old and they ‘would have already made a proposal’ to the Reds.
Igli Tare, the sporting director of the Serie A side ‘always had a weakness’ for the Swiss attacker and made several calls yesterday, with the first one being with the club’s manager, Maurizio Sarri.
It’s said the club chief discussed Shaqiri with his manager and the former Chelsea man gave his approval to sign the player.
The Italian club’s director is said to have made a first offer to the Merseyside club worth €12m [€10m + €2m bonuses].
Liverpool are ‘unwilling to let’ the winger leave for less than €15m, but the report states ‘there is room’ to negotiate and try to find an agreement.
Shaqiri likes Sarri and the Biancocelesti, and this could make Lazio ‘push to make an effort’ to convince the English club.
Jürgen Klopp’s man is a ‘concrete’ option for Lazio and there could be ‘something more’ on this case in the coming days.
For now, Shaqiri is on a holiday and his future is still to be written, which, according to La Lazio Siamo Noi, could now be in Serie A.
