Switzerland winger Xherdan Shaqiri was relegated with Stoke City this past season, and will reportedly be allowed to leave for £12 million (R217 million).

Liverpool are believed to have shown interest in the 26-year-old, who has previously represented clubs such as Bayern Munich and Inter Milan.

According to The Sun, Mourinho is now also considering a move for the left-footed star, with the player having made it clear he wants to remain in England.

Shaqiri joined the Potters from Inter in 2015, and has scored 15 goals and assisted a further 15 strikes in 92 matches for the English club so far.
