Liverpool are ready to approach Bayern Munich to discuss a deal for winger Xherdan Shaqiri.

Reds manager Brendan Rodgers has turned his attention to 21-year-old Shaqiri, after losing out on Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Borussia Dortmund last week.

And after insisting that he remains active in the transfer market for new players, Rodgers is hopeful he will be able to land Shaqiri for a bargain price.

The Switzerland international moved to Bayern from FC Basel last summer, but has failed to establish himself as a regular, and faces an uncertain future under new manager Pep Guardiola.

Shaqiri is expected to meet with Guardiola next week to discuss his future, but it is expected that he will ask for a move away.
