Reports: Liverpool miss out on Martin Odegaard – but could get Shaqiri

Liverpool have missed out on the signing of Norwegian wonderkid Martin Odegaard, according to reports from Germany – who claim he will sign for Bayern Munich tomorrow, on his 16th birthday.

German publication SPORT1 claim Pep Guardiola’s side have won the race to sign the teenager, who recently trained at both Liverpool and Munich.

Meanwhile, another German newspaper, Bild, claim reported Liverpool target Xherdan Shaqiri – whom the Reds were heavily linked with last summer – will be sold in January.

They claim Bayern want 20 million euros for the Swiss attacker.

Bild also claim, more worryingly, that Bayern are interested in signing Raheem Sterling from Liverpool.

“I will consider my decision during the winter break,” he said.

Since then the 23-year-old has made just eight appearances for Bayern in the Bundesliga.
