Liverpool in Barca battle over teen strike sensation - reports

Published Add your comment

Liverpool face competition from Barcelona and Bayern Munich for the signature of Wilfried Zaha.

The Crystal Palace starlet has been earning rave reviews in the Npower Championship, leading to speculation over a move to some of the biggest clubs in Europe.

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is a known admirer of the player, but The Daily Star report that La Liga champions Barca and German giants Bayern are also tracking the player with a view to a possible £5 million move.

It's claimed that the Spanish side registered their interest following Palace's 3-1 win over Brighton at the weekend, whilst the Bundesliga outfit have a track record of signing players from the English lower-league's after taking Dale Jennings to the Allianz Arena.

The Reds have invested heavily in British talent since the arrival of director of football Damien Comolli, with Jordan Henderson, Andy Carroll, Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing all brought to Anfield since the Frenchman's arrival at Liverpool.


The club's academy also points to a bright future, with Raheem Sterling and Adam Morgan rapidly climbing through the ranks at Liverpool and impressing.

A move for Zaha would continue to show the club's intent to develop for the future, and would provide a coup for Liverpool ahead of such high-profile rivals for the England youth international.
