"World class" Premier League winger really likes Liverpool - he could be the perfect fit

"World class" Premier League winger really likes Liverpool - he could be the perfect fit

Liverpool have been linked with Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.

Liverpool have been linked with making a move for Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha, according to new reports.

The Ivory Coast international has been with the Eagles for seven years in his current spell.

He previously came through the youth academy at the club, helping them to secure promotion from the Championship in 2013.

Six months prior to that achievement, he officially signed for Manchester United, but never broke through into regular first-team contention.

Back at Palace, Zaha refound his best form, before developing into one of the most consistent and threatening forwards in the Premier League. He has 65 goals in 267 appearances since rejoining the club.

His performances have led to regular interest in his services. But the 29-year-old has not departed Selhurst Park.

That could, however, be about to change this summer. Zaha's contract at the London club expires at the end of the season.

Although there is no indication yet that the forward will leave Palace, he may see any potential move as a chance to play European football - something he has never done.

An opening could potentially present itself at Liverpool - and a new report suggests a move is very much on.

Wilfried Zaha to Liverpool?

According to Italian outlet Calciomercato, the Reds are interested in a move for Zaha when his contract expires in June.

The same source claims that Zaha is "very fond" of Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, meaning any deal could be relatively easy to engineer.

But Patrick Vieira and Palace will want to convince the Ivorian to stay, with the Eagles having provided Zaha with the platform to produce some of his best football in the Premier League over the past two seasons.

Speaking in 2019, after Zaha scored for Palace against Liverpool, Klopp said: "Wilfried Zaha is a world-class player, and he gets into a one-on-one situation, and we're one down."

The 29-year-old could prove to be the perfect fit for the Reds, with the club having been linked with several forwards, and doubt over the future of Roberto Firmino.

Zaha can play on either wing, as well as centrally, making him a superb squad option for Klopp's side.
