There are widespread reports that Xherdan Shaqiri wants an exit from Liverpool as a result of playing time being quite sparse.

However, he had been unable to make a major impact in all these clubs, but Stoke City was quite different since he was a big fish in a small pond. After impressing at the Britannia stadium, Shaqiri made the move to Liverpool in July 2018 for around £ 13.5 million.
