Shaqiri has set his sights on a move away from the Potters after their relegation to the Championship, and is interested in remaining in the Premier League.
Now, according to the Guardian‘s Andy Hunter, Shaqiri is an option for Klopp, with the 26-year-old available for between £12 million and £13.5 million due to a release clause.

Shaqiri has struggled to settle at a club since leaving FC Basel in 2012, with opportunities limited at both Bayern Munich and Inter Milan.
He often cut a frustrated figure at Stoke, with a paucity of quality around him despite promising recruitment in recent years.
Last season he scored eight goals, assisting a further seven, in 36 Premier League games, topping the charts for both in the Potters’ squad.
Speaking to Aargauer Zeitung last week he said: “It is no secret that I will leave the club. I think the [Premier] league is perfect for me.”
“I would love to stay in England but I don’t want to rule anything out,” he added. “It’s the best league with the best players.”
He was a target for Liverpool back in 2014 under Brendan Rodgers, but Bayern were reluctant to part ways with their 11.6 million signing.
