Paul Robinson has tipped Xherdan Shaqiri to leave Liverpool this summer after the attacker’s price tag was revealed.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former England international claimed an exit at the end of the season would be in the best interests of both player and club.
Shaqiri, 29, has two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract at Anfield, having arrived from Stoke City for £13million in July 2018.
Football Insider revealed on Saturday the Switzerland international plans to leave the Reds this summer, with the club willing to sanction his exit for a fee of around £23million.
Robinson believes Liverpool’s price tag represents good value for money given what Shaqiri has achieved in the game.
“I think that is a cheap price for a player that has won the league and the Champions League with Liverpool,” he told Football Insider.
“There are so many players ahead of him in the pecking order there now. If they can get a decent fee for him in the summer I think they will sell him.
“He is 29, he has won a lot of trophies in his career and I suspect he will now want to play regularly. His game time is getting less and less.
“It could be one that is quite obvious for both parties. The club are happy to let him go for the right price and he is happy to go a play football on a regular basis.”
