Tottenham Hotspur have made an initial enquiry regarding a potential deal to sign Xherdan Shaqiri from relegated Stoke City.
teamTALK are running an ‘exclusive’ where they claim that sources believe contact has been made between both clubs over a deal.
The 26-year-old’s contract at the bet365 stadium contains a trigger that allows him to leave if a £12million offer is made. The report claims that Mauricio Pochettino made an unsuccessful approach for the Swiss international in the January transfer window and is now ready to return with a fresh bid.
I’d rather see us break the bank for Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha than table a cheap deal for Shaqiri, I’m not sure he has the pace or engine to fit our pressing style. It would be a typical Levy deal to go for the cheaper alternative.
