Liverpool forward Xherdan Shaqiri has reportedly agreed terms with Ligue 1 club Olympique Lyonnais, and is waiting for the final terms to go through.


According to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Switzerland international is currently 'waiting' for Liverpool and Lyon to agree on a deal.


While speaking on his Here We Go Podcast, he said that Jurgen Klopp has to offload players this summer before he can actually make any more new signings.


"Liverpool need to sell players before signing new players, Jurgen Klopp has been so clear. For Shaqiri and Lyon, they have been in negotiations," Romano said.


"Shaqiri has an agreement with Lyon but there is still no agreement with the clubs. Let's see what happens."


Shaqiri is far down the pecking order at Liverpool, with the likes of Takumi Minamino, Diogo Jota and Harvey Elliott all being preferred to him as backup to Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.


According to Sky Sports, Burnley have submitted a bid of around £12 million to sign Lyon winger Maxwel Cornet, and hence the French club would have enough money to match Liverpool's demands.


So far this season, Shaqiri has been left out of Klopp's squad, with the French club wanting to finalise the deal for him as soon as possible.


Shaqiri made 22 appearances last season, scoring one goal and providing four assists, mainly coming off the bench as Liverpool qualified for UEFA Champions League football.
