With reports stating that Liverpool will need to sell players this summer in order to make up funds to buy players, it is expected that there will be some departures.

Xherdan Shaqiri has been rumored to be leaving Liverpool for well over a year as lack of playing time has thrust him into the category of expendable.

Coincidently, S.S. Lazio's hiring of Maurizio Sarri may finally bring an avenue for the Switzerland international's departure.

According to Calciomercato, Lazio are interested in bringing in Shaqiri as one of Sarri's first signings this summer siting the new change in system and need for attackers with possible departures of their own.

Shaqiri provided some memorable moments, especially in his first season at Anfield.

A brace against United that ended Jose Mourinho's reign in Manchester and who could forget his vital assist in the 4-0 comeback against Barcelona that Georginio Wijnaldum headed home to tie it up on aggregate.

No matter the amount of production, Shaqiri was a vital part of this team over the past few season, providing skill, leadership, and a winning mentality.

With Michael Edwards and company actively looking to offload players to create funds, surely a deal for Shaqiri to leave will be made this summer.

But, if Shaqiri departs, clearly that would mean reinforcements would be made in attack as well. With Harry Wilson and Divock Origi expected to leave Merseyside this summer as well, it would be vital to any chance of success this upcoming campaign that Liverpool bring in an attacker.
