Liverpool have predictably missed out on another top transfer target, with widespread reports claiming Xherdan Shaqiri has completed his move to Inter Milan.

Reports over the past week have suggested the Reds were in pole position to sign the Swiss international having offered a more lucrative contract, but once again it seems they have been beaten to a major transfer target at the last moment.

Reliable Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reported early that Inter Milan were able to close the deal for a reported figure of €20m to sign the player permanently.

The news begs the question – how on earth does Ian Ayre still have a job?
