Man City in Shaqiri link

Manchester City are watching young Switzerland international Xherdan Shaqiri, who is also attracting interest from Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, report the Metro.

Whilst Shaqiri has been on the radar of European clubs for a while, he is yet to secure a move away from Swiss Champions League outfit FC Basle. This is because there are reservations about his attitude and consistency as well as his physical presence.

Having scored a long range effort against England in qualifying, as well as a recent hat-trick against Bulgaria his reputation however is growing. He also stole the show at the Under 21 European Championships this summer only to declare himself ‘a very special player’ again raises questions over his personality.

With Serie A outfits also interested, Shaqiri might be worth up to 15 million euros should Basle play hardball, or he could be subject to a 6 figure bid including future clauses and add-ons.
