Liverpool have got no chance of making a £10million profit on Xherdan Shaqiri and will be lucky if they make any money on him at all.
That is the view of former England and Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after it was revealed the Premier League champions are set to offload the midfielder in the summer.
This site revealed last week Liverpool have set an asking price of £23million on the 29-year-old who came close to leaving Anfield last summer.
The Switzerland international moved to Merseyside from Stoke City for a £13million fee in the summer of 2018 after their relegation to the Championship triggered a release clause.
He has played 58 games across all competitions for the Reds but has been limited to just six starts this term.
Asked whether there will be suitors for Shaqiri at £23million, Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “They’ve got no chance.
“For somebody who hasn’t played too much football over the last two or three years, they’ve got no chance of getting that money.
“They’ll be lucky to get £15million for him.
“That’s probably the reason he hasn’t left yet. There was talk of him leaving in the last window and he didn’t.
“I think they’re asking for a bit too much there.”
Across his time with Stoke and Liverpool, Shaqiri has scored 22 goals and provided 20 assists in 126 Premier League games.
While he has three league assists under his belt this term, the 5ft 5in playmaker last scored in the top-flight in December 2019.
