The Lions would struggle to sign the Swiss international on a permanent deal due to their financial position but would instead be keen on a loan deal with an option to buy.

Shaqiri has another three-years remaining on his current Liverpool contract.

The 29-year-old has one goal in 10 appearances for the Reds in all competitions this season.

Galatasaray were in the title race before the coronavirus disruptions.

The Yellow-Reds are just three points behind leaders Trabzonspor and Basaksehir who are second on goal difference.

There are a total of eight games remaining in the league which is set to return on 12 June.
