Former Ireland striker urges Liverpool to make transfer move for 26-year-old PL hitman

Liverpool FC transfer news: Tony Cascarino tips Jurgen Klopp to sign Zaha

Liverpool could be set to sign Crystal Palace star in the upcoming summer transfer window.

This is the opinion of former Ireland striker Tony Cascarino who has backed the Reds to sign Wilfried Zaha following his comments. (h/t The Daily Mirror)

Wilfried Zaha, 26, shone in Crystal Palace’s 3-2 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. He scored the Eagles’ second goal of the game and was a constant pest to Arsenal’s backline who simply couldn’t cope with his pace and smart movement.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Tony Cascarino spoke about the Ivorian winger and his recent comments about wanting to play in the Champions League. He also spotted something that suggests Jurgen Klopp could make a move for the Crystal Palace star in the summer.

“Well, all of the top-six now are playing attack-minded football,” Cascarino told talkSPORT. (h/t The Daily Mirror)

“Liverpool played Palace last year and I went to the game and Jurgen Klopp was consistently on Alexander-Arnold about Wilf Zaha, you could see it from the sideline.

“I kept thinking after that game, Klopp really does respect Zaha as a player and he knows how dangerous he is. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see him at Liverpool, but he could do a job for any of the top-six.”

Do Liverpool need Zaha?

Zaha is seen as one of the best players playing outside the so-called ‘big six’ teams in the league. He has successfully managed to revive his career at Palace after enduring a torrid spell with Manchester United.

At Liverpool, I don’t see him getting regular opportunities under Klopp. Sadio Mane is an undoubted starter in the team and he operates from the left flank, which is basically Zaha’s position at Selhurst Park.

Even if Klopp feels like buying an attacking player in the summer, his focus should be on bringing an out-and-out number 9.

Liverpool FC transfer news: Inter Milan unwilling to sell Sebastiano Esposito

Calciomercato claims that Inter Milan are unwilling to sell their rising starlet Sebastiano Esposito despite interest from Liverpool.

The 16-year-old was given his debut this season when he came on to face Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League knockout rounds.

Inter could not defeat the Bundesliga side but there is interest in the 16-year-old from Manchester City too (h/t Calciomercato).

The report adds that Inter see him as the future of the club and will only look to loan him out or let him play in the Primavera League.

The 16-year-old has already made a big name for himself with some great performances for the Italy U-17 team, and he seems set to remain with the Serie A giants for a while.

Liverpool need to build on their great season

The Reds have a great first XI but could do with more talent to strengthen the squad.

Esposito might be highly rated but it would be unlikely seeing him break into the first-team or even push the likes of Rhian Brewster and Divock Origi for game time next season.

Liverpool need to build on an impressive season and it will be interesting to see our moves in the transfer window. The Reds missed out on the Premier League title by one point but can finish the season on a high by winning the Champions League.

Liverpool FC transfer news: Reds cool interest in Uruguayan striker Maxi Gomez

Liverpool have cooled their interest in 22-year-old Maxi Gomez, according to the Daily Star.

The report claims that the Reds enquired about the Uruguayan sensation, however, they have backed out of a deal to sign the Celta Vigo attacker.

Gomez has impressed at the La Liga side over the past two seasons. The 22-year-old scored 13 times in the league, with five assists to his name during the campaign.

The report adds that the forward has a £43m release clause in his contract and there is interest from our Champions League final opponents, Tottenham.

Spurs have made contact with the player’s representatives, according to the report, while there is also interest from Borussia Dortmund.

Liverpool have a couple of up and coming strikers in the team

Roberto Firmino is the first-choice striker in the team and the Reds have a couple of young options who could do a job in place of the Brazilian.

Divock Origi was the surprise package of the season, nabbing some important goals despite not featuring a lot for the team. The Belgian bagged a brace against Barcelona recently and even scored the winners against Everton and Newcastle in the Premier League.

Rhian Brewster also seems set to play for the first-team next season, and the forward is one of the most highly-rated youngsters we have in the team.

Latest Liverpool news: Liverpool players reach Marbella for Champions League final training

Jurgen Klopp and the rest of the Liverpool team landed in Marbella for their Champions League final training sessions.

The Reds face Tottenham on June 1 at the Wanda Metropolitano for the final of the tournament as they look to win their sixth Champions League crown.

Liverpool visited Marbella earlier this season, and there was one major surprise joining the team in the training camp.

Naby Keita was initially ruled out for the season by Klopp after he picked up an injury against Barcelona. However, his national team manager Paul Put believes the Guinea midfielder could be back for the Champions League final (h/t Liverpool Echo).

The heroes from the win over Barcelona looked to be in the mood, with Georginio Wijnaldum pictured alongside Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Divock Origi, who scored a brace against Barcelona, could get a start in case Roberto Firmino isn’t fit for the final.

The usual suspects for Liverpool

Mohamed Salah also checked into the training camp and the Egyptian could be the difference maker for us in Madrid.

Virgil van Dijk has been excellent for us from the day he signed for us, and his leadership at the back will be one of the keys to winning the Champions League.

Our captain, Jordan Henderson, was also one of the stars in the win over Barcelona while Trent Alexander-Arnold’s crosses led to two goals against the Catalans.

Andy Robertson returned from injury to face Wolves on the final day of the season, and he should be ready to play in the final.

Alisson also pulled off some fantastic saves against Barcelona and won the Premier League Golden Glove award.
