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

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.
