Liverpool have tabled a bid for Bayern Munich midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri.

Blick says the Reds have made a £14.2m bid for the want-away winger.

Liverpool are now the favourites to sign the highly coveted midfielder, who has attracted interest from Juventus and Roma this summer.

The Reds' offer for Shaqiri hasn't been accepted, but their bid for the Switzerland star is close to Bayern's valuation of the player.
