XHERDAN SHAQIRI is set to quit Liverpool this summer with Lazio interested, according to reports.
The Swiss midfielder, 29, has been little more than a bit-part player under Jurgen Klopp in recent seasons.

Lazio are currently without a boss after Simone Inzaghi took over from Antonio Conte at Inter Milan.
Sarri has been out of work since leaving Juventus after just one season, in 2019-20.
But he’s hotly linked with taking over at Lazio – who finished sixth in Serie A last season.
Should he arrive, transfer expert Nicolo Schira has revealed Shaqiri could be one of his top targets.
Shaqiri joined Liverpool in a £13million deal in 2018 and was a key first-team member in his debut season.
However, injuries and lack of form limited to just 21 Premier League appearances in the past two seasons, including just SEVEN in the 2019-20 title triumph.
Shaqiri is expected to be part of a TEN-strong exodus at Anfield this summer.
