    Is Moreno that annoying cousin who keeps turning up to family events without being invited?

    If you're Shaqiri you have to be thinking of moving on. He made a meaningful contribution and wont have done his reputation any harm but he must want more football than hes going to get with us. Not that I'd have any issue with him staying,I hope he does as he's a good squad player but we'd probably double our money if we did sell him.

    Yeah I would be trying to keep him. It would be hard to find a better player even if we get £15-£20 million I reckon.

    Brandt supposedly available for cut price £22m in summer. I'd bring him in and still keep hold of Shaqiri.

    Whispers starting to knock around that we’ll sell if a decent offer come soon in. Can’t help but feel like he’d be a loss. That may be down to the fact that I watched that video of all this season’s goals, he looks great in it.

    I guess he’s not going to be anything more than a squad player, on the other hand he’s not going to find a bigger club to take him.

    Shaqiri started for us against Barcelona in the European Cup semi final. We won 4-0. :)

    I think both Shaq and LFC have benefited from him coming in, but that said he's gone off the boil and clearly dropped off Klopp's radar for quite a bit of the season.

    At 27, I'd expect that he'd want to be playing regular football, but I'm not sure if there's anything more to come from him, other than what we've seen to date (so he's gonna be a squad player, but not a regular for us).

    I'm fairly sure we'd make some money if we sold him now, but I think he's got another 3-4 years left on his contact, so the question is does he actually want to go, or is he happy with irregular appearances at a big club ?

    My concern is that Shaq could hamper Harry Wilson's progress. Wilson is 22, has returned from a good loan spell and competes for the same right wing position. Wilson could learn more as Mo's understudy, and imho, has a lot more potential than Shaq. so I think I'd rather see him rank ahead of Shaq next season, when it comes to who gets on the bench as cover for Salah.

    Don't think Wilson will be getting a look in regardless of if Shaq around or not. I don't know anything for sure but from him being our best U23 player and others getting into the senior squad ahead of him it would suggest Klopp doesn't fancy him for some reason.

    Think if Harry Wilson was going to "make it" at Liverpool there wouldnt be any talk (paper talk granted) of him/Liverpool looking for a PL club loan for next season. Reckon if anyone offers the reputed 25m for him or close to it, he will be on his way.
    When you consider TAA is 20, Gomez is 22 - both regulars, Brewster is 19 and with the first team and from all reports Klopp is very high on him, it proves that age is no impediment to getting into the first team squad at Liverpool.
    If Shaq is happy with a bit part role in the squad, it'd make more sense to keep him as cover than throwing Wilson into the first team scene, where he will play at best sporadically, and cant see him being content to do that after a season playing full time, and plenty of teams who would give him far more game time.
