Liverpool & Arsenal chase teenage striker

Published Add your comment

Crystal Palace striker Wilfried Zaha is being pursued by Liverpool and Arsenal, it has been claimed.

According to The Guardian, the Barclays Premier League duo are two of the clubs being linked with the teenager, who has scored three times in 53 senior appearances for Palace.

Despite a modest goalscoring record, the 18-year-old has been tipped for a bright future, and Liverpool are alleged to have been pursuing him for a number of months.

It was previously suggested that Kenny Dalglish had been impressed with Zaha when running the rule over Liverpool youngster Conor Coady during an England under-19 international.


However, should Liverpool formalise their reported interest in Zaha, then it would appear they may have to contest Arsenal for the Eagles forward.

Arsenal are expected to delve into the transfer market in January, following a late flurry of signings during the summer.

Park Chu-Young, Andre Santos, Per Mertesacker, Yossi Benayoun and Mikel Arteta all joined Arsenal prior to the deadline, after the acquistions of Carl Jenkinson, Gervinho and Joel Campbell earlier in the window.
