If the reports are to be believed Liverpool were heavily linked with the move for Shaqiri but the Reds have failed to land once again their top target.
According to Sky Italia journalist Fabrizio Romano, Inter will sign him on loan for €2m for 6 months, and then Inter will have to pay €12m to Bayern Munich in June.
