Liverpool winger Xherdan Shaqiri and Inter midfielders Ivan Perisic and Christian Eriksen have turned down interest from Hertha BSC, according to Sky.

The crisis-hit German capital club sit 14th in the Bundesliga, just two points above the relegation zone, and are apparently in the market for reinforcements as they look to propel themselves away from the bottom of the table.

However, neither Shaqiri, Perisic nor Eriksen are interested in a move to Berlin despite all struggling for regular starting opportunities, as per the report.

Hertha will hope to get back to winning ways under new coach Pal Dardai against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday after relieving Bruno Labbadia of his duties in the wake of last week's 1-4 defeat to Werder Bremen.
