A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

Liverpool are looking to secure the signature of Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha this summer. According to recent reports, the Reds are plotting a move for the English speedster when the transfer window opens in the summer. It is believed that the 25-year-old forward is a transfer target for a host of teams which includes Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City who are all in pursuit of his signature this summer.

Zaha has enjoyed a sensational campaign at Selhurst Park and has put in a number of match-winning performances during the course of this season which has not gone unnoticed. He has been one of the main reasons why the London club has managed to secure their Premier League lives for another season. Some sources are now claiming that the Cote d’Ivoire international is eager to make a switch away from the English capital in search of European football.

The Merseyside club managed to book a ticket to Kiev last week when they secured a 7-6 aggregate win over AS Roma and will now face off against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final. However, the Reds suffered a bitter 1-0 defeat against Chelsea away at Stamford Bridge in their last league outing which means that they would need to a victory versus Brighton & Hove Albion in the final gameweek of the season to ensure Champions League football for the next campaign.

Zaha had previously failed to cut the mustard at Manchester United but now that he has been able to take his game to the next level at Selhurst Park, he could thrive with a move to a top club. Recent reports have suggested that the Reds are ready to challenge Chelsea and Manchester City in the chase for the £50m-rated player’s signature this summer. However, the Palace wide man penned a new, long-term contract with the club last summer so Roy Hodgson will be under no pressure to part ways with him unless the right offer comes in for the player. 

The potential acquisition of Zaha will undoubtedly bolster Klopp’s attacking options ahead of the new season. Liverpool have the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Adam Lallana, Dominic Solanke, Danny Ings and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain vying for a place in Klopp’s first eleven. The addition of Zaha will definitely improve their squad significantly and add more competition for places within the Reds team.

The 25-year-old wide man has proven himself in the Premier League and could turn out to be a shrewd signing for the Reds if they manage to pull off such a deal. Zaha is highly versatile and can operate in a number of different positions across the pitch.

The former Manchester United forward can play on either flank or as a centre-forward up top which makes him a perfect fit for Jurgen Klopp’s team. It remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of Zaha and whether he ends up making a switch to Anfield in the near future.
