Here’s a sample of Liverpool fans responding to the post:
Newcastle have sounded out Xherdhan Shaqiri’s representatives about a move this summer. Liverpool will not stand in his way if the initial talks firm up. Shaqiri would be interested, providing takeover goes through ?

Good for Shaq but still makes me sad to see him go ?

He’d be their main man. Made a decent impact here, Shaq. Goals against United and Everton and the cross for Gini’s goal against Barca. What’s not to like?

Might actually get our asking of 25m from them. Happy days.

Would you be happy if Liverpool sold Shaqiri to Newcastle this summer?
Since his arrival at the Merseyside club in 2018, Shaqiri’s time at Liverpool has unfortunately been plagued by a couple of injury issues that have disrupted his playing time. Now that it has been reported that Shaqiri could be making the move to Newcastle this summer, this news sparked a big reaction on Twitter. Some are gutted at the thought of Shaqiri leaving while others believe transfer guru Michael Edwards, who has gained a reputation for his recent transfer dealings at Anfield, will make the most of the situation.
If we let Shaq go we better buy someone

What do we think?
It appears that these Liverpool fans would be happy to see Shaqiri leave Anfield this summer if they get a decent transfer fee for him and sufficiently replace him with a new player.
