Hamburg are ready to offer £7m for FC Basle's playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri.

Bundesliga side Hamburg have won the race to sign Xherdan Shaqiri from FC Basle, according to Metro.

The Swiss playmaker has been linked with a number of top European sides, including Arsenal, Tottenham, Liverpool and AC Milan.

However Hamburg, who are currently bottom of the Bundesliga, have stolen a march in the race to sign the 20-year-old.

Hamburg manager Thorsten Fink has identified Shaqiri as the man to turn around his team's fortunes.

The German side are expected to make their move with a bid of £7m during the January transfer window.

Shaqiri has scored four goals in 14 appearances for Switzerland and has scored 11 in 72 outings for Basle.
