Liverpool and Lyon agree to transfer Swiss international Xherdan Shaqiri

A clearing in the ambient grayness. A few hours after conceding a defeated draw against Clermont on Sunday, Olympique Lyonnais announced that they had reached an agreement in principle to recruit attacking midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri. The Swiss international arrived in Lyon on Monday morning to undergo his medical examination, on which the validation of the transfer which would be 11 million euros (bonus included) is conditional.

While the Times mentioned an agreement between Liverpool and OL for a transfer of around 11 million euros, L’Equipe speaks for its part of a much lower amount (6 million euros) to which could be added various bonus.
