The Reds could be two attacking options short heading into the new campaign as both Shaqiri and Lallana head for the exit.
Shaqiri has struggled with injuries and competition for places during his time at Liverpool, and this season has made just 10 appearances, while Lallana’s six-year spell on Merseyside will end on the expiry of his contract.
But Shaqiri and Lallana are yet to seal their next destination, though reports on Tuesday night revealed a possible new club for each of the experienced duo.
The Magpies are said to have already approached the Swiss’ representatives, and “Liverpool will not stand in his way if a suitable offer is made to sign him.”
Liverpool had set a price tag of around £27 million for the 28-year-old in January, amid interest from Sevilla and Roma, but it is likely this would be impacted by the current financial situation.
However, the prospect of Saudi funds being pumped into St James’ Park does make the Reds securing their ideal fee more feasible.
A move to Burnley may be the least appealing to Lallana, though it would almost certainly guarantee him a leading role under a manager who cherishes English talent.
For Liverpool, losing both Shaqiri and Lallana could be seen as a blow, but it also marks the next phase in their evolution under Klopp as the likes of Elliott, Jones and Takumi Minamino benefit.
