​Everton, West Ham and Crystal Palace have all taken an interest in Stoke winger Xherdan Shaqiri, who is expected to cost just £12m in the summer due to a relegation release clause, according to a report from the Sun


The Potters' relegation from the Premier League was confirmed after they were defeated 2-1 by ​Crystal Palace at the start of May. Despite a disappointing season for the club, Shaqiri has registered an impressive eight goals and seven assists in 36 league appearances.

The Swiss star - who arrived at the Bet365 Stadium from ​Inter in 2015 for £12m - is contracted to the club until the summer of 2020 but, following ​Stoke's relegation to the second tier, will have the option of activating a relegation release clause which would allow him to leave Staffordshire for £12m. 


As per the report, news of his potential availability has attracted the attention of a number of ​Premier League clubs, including ​Everton, West Ham and Crystal Palace. 


The Toffees, who finished the season in eighth place, have been criticised by fans for a number of turgid displays, and the club's hierarchy will be looking to bring in some creative flair in the summer. 

Palace see Shaqiri as a possible replacement for Wilfried Zaha, who has been linked with a number of clubs. Meanwhile, amid a gloomy debut season at their new stadium, ​West Ham are also planning to strengthen in the summer window, and Shaqiri is seen as suitable addition due to his reasonable price tag.
