On Tuesday, highly trusted Liverpool Echo journalist James Pearce reported that there is no interest in Juventus' Paulo Dybala, denying suggestions that the Reds are weighing up a sensational move for the 24-year-old.
Ojo, who spent previous year helping Fulham win promotion to the Premier League scoring four goals in 22 appearances despite being sidelined for a time by a dislocated shoulder, has impressed already in pre-season.
Jurgen Klopp has been eyeing Shaqiri as a potential acquisition since before the World Cup and he is now prepared to make his move to trigger the release clause embedded in the Swiss winger's contract.
Raheem Sterling at heart of England World Cup bid despite goal drought
Beckham and Sir Geoff Hurst, though, defended Sterling's displays after the quarter-final win against Sweden. And to outdo the mighty Croatians, the Three Lions will certainly need their number 10 to perform his best.
Shaqiri is now on holiday after participating in the World Cup and recently said his future would soon be resolved as he expressed his desire to continue playing in the Premier League.
Klopp has already signed the Brazilian midfielder Fabinho from Monaco for £43.7m this summer and is now turning his attention to Shaqiri, who will be allowed to leave Stoke following their relegation from the Premier League. The Potters have also made contact to discuss Ojo's plans for the 2018/19 season.
Shaqiri scored eight times for Stoke last season and has made 92 appearances in total since joining from Inter in 2015. It's pretty normal to be aware of clubs being interested.
