Arrived at OL last summer from Liverpool, Xherdan Shaqiri has been disappointing since his arrival, he could soon leave the club.
His arrival this summer at theOlympique Lyonnais had aroused a lot of excitement among the Lyon supporters and the various observers of Ligue 1. After having played in the Bayern Munich and to Liverpool, xherdan Shaqiri committed last summer to OL, with the status of a player accustomed to high level, who will bring his experience to the Lyon group.
But four months later, the results are quite different. 13 matches, one goal and two assists, the Swiss international (100 caps, 26 goals) has so far failed to convince and justify his status in the Rhône.

The club’s second biggest salary
So much so that his departure is possible! According to information from The team, the Lyon leaders would consider parting with their summer recruit. In addition to his meager statistics, the former Bavarian earns 350,000 euros per month, making him the second biggest salary of the club. A cost far too high for the performance of the player on the field.
Even if for the moment no lead has been mentioned for a possible transfer, Shaqiri’s future seems to be written far from Groupama Stadium.
At the same time, The team reveals that OL continue to work to recruit Sardar Azmoun.
