Shakiri for 12.5m

Post by Scoobychief »

would be a brilliant signing for us, 12.5m peanuts, of course no way would we entertain that or could afford his wages

And deadly from set pieces too.

Does he have a fitness problem though?

That's almost recouping what they paid for him, despite 21 club appearances and 1 goal in 2 years...

I look at him and I don't see a Bielsa player. He'd want him to lose about 5 stone for a start.

I don't think the work rate expected from Bielsa would suit Shaqiri style of play

He would want to join a CL team. They all do even if it was Rangers... Oh wait a minute.

He's a talented lad, but the lack of game time at LFC is a big red flag.

If he couldn't push into and establish himself in a side that was palying great and reaping the biggest rewards then you have to question his determination and motivation, same as Kiko at RM.

So for those reasons I think he's not for us as I just don't think he'll push hard enough to get into the first team and MB is not gonna tolerate any porky slackers as evidenced with JKA ;-)
