Xherdan Shaqiri will instruct his agent to find him a new club as he lays the path to quitting Liverpool in the summer, Football Insider understands.

The attacking midfielder, 28, has had just 256 minutes of senior action this season and been on the fringes for most of his two years at Anfield.

A source with knowledge of Shaqiri’s situation has told Football Insider that he intends to move on at the end of the end of the season.

This comes after Football Insider revealed back in November that Shaqiri had told friends he wanted to quit Anfield when his second campaign had finished.

The left-footed attacker’s stance has not altered in the subsequent three-month period although he is keen to go out on a high.

Shaqiri did not push to leave in the recently-shut January window as he wanted to be part of what has been a historic season at Liverpool as they close in on what appears an inevitable first league title in 30 years.

But the Switzerland international has made little headway in breaking up the holy trinity of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino up front.

Tellingly, he has dropped further to the fringes in recent weeks and has not made the matchday squad for Liverpool’s last four Premier League matches.

Shaqiri has suffered a string of niggling injuries this season, including hamstring and calf problems.

He has made two Premier League starts among 10 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring in the demolition derby win against Everton in December.

Shaqiri signed a five-year contract when he joined from Stoke City in the summer of 2018 after Liverpool activated his £13million release clause.
