Liverpool have asked for a £7million fee for the sale of Oussama Assaidi.

The Mirror suggests that the Reds have quoted Stoke City the aforementioned amount for the Moroccan winger to make a permanent move to the Britannia Stadium.

Assaidi spent the 2013/14 season on loan with the Potters and impressed enough to prompt manager Mark Hughes to indicate the Staffordshire club could make a play for his services this summer.

However, the transfer fee is set to ward off any pursuit from Stoke after Assaidi joined Liverpool from Heerenveen for £3.5m two years ago.
