Crystal Palace could sell Wilfried Zaha as early as January amid interest from Arsenal and Liverpool

Liverpool and Arsenal share an interest in Crystal Palace’s 29-year-old Ivorian winger Wilfried Zaha. Amidst rumours of this interest, the South London outfit, as per Liverpool Echo, could sell him next January.

The former Manchester United winger’s contract at Selhurst Park in 2023 (transfermarkt). Following injuries to Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz, Liverpool lacks a natural left-winger. Even though Darwin Nunez can play in the position, having a natural winger would allow the Uruguayan to fulfil his role as a centre-forward.

Zaha has on multiple occasions shown that he is someone who could play at the European level. Former Liverpool captain Graeme Souness had a few years ago praised him, claiming that envisions the winger playing for Real Madrid.

South London to the North-West of England?

Zaha has five goals and an assist this season in 10 appearances across all competitions. Unlike other transfer targets, the Ivorian does not carry the weight to prove himself in a new league.

There is not a lot to showcase after 288 appearances in the Premier League, 274 of them for the Selhurst Park side. All in all, Zaha has 88 goals and 74 assists for the Eagles in 440 games across all competitions.

A few weeks earlier, a report suggested that the Ivorian would be open to moving to Liverpool in case Jurgen Klopp shows actual interest in signing him. He would certainly add strength and add depth to the Merseysiders’ roster.

Instead of playing a youngster like Fabio Carvalho out of his natural position, getting a seasoned player such as Zaha could prove decisive.

Zaha scored Palace’s first goal against Liverpool earlier this season as well. He has tormented enough backlines and could prove to be a great addition to the Reds, wherein he could possibly get better service than anywhere else in the country apart from maybe Manchester City.

This season, we cannot even say that as the performances have been pretty lacklustre. Hopefully, we bounce back sooner than later.
