Stoke City midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri has said that he is aiming to stay in the Premier League as speculation continues over where he will move.
There has been much speculation that he will move to Anfield to become a part of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool squad following his side’s relegation to the Championship.
But interest has surfaced from Manchester United and Southampton as he considers where to move – with a clause in his contract allowing him to leave for around £12m.
“At the moment, I can’t say anything,” he said.
“You’re going to hear soon on my future.
“I was not thinking about this because I was just focused on my national team and I wanted to make a good tournament for my team and my nation.
“It’s pretty normal to be aware of clubs being interested.
“Of course, I would like to play on the biggest stage in football, everybody knows that.
“I hope I can stay in the Premier League. I hope so, but you never know with football.
“I don’t rule out anything.” he finished.
Southampton will offer him the best chance of regular starts and a leading role under Mark Hughes, who took him to Stoke, but Liverpool and United will have Champions League football on offer.
