Liverpool are ready to snap up Crystal Palace’s young star Wilfried Zaha, according to the Daily Mail.

 

Kenny Dalglish has reportedly been watching the England Under-19 international for some time.

 

Zaha’s performance in Palace’s win at Old Trafford seems to have convinced Dalglish to bring the player to Anfield.

 

Liverpool are tracking attacking options in January and the 19-year-old would fit their policy of predominantly signing promising young players.

 

Reports are saying that the Anfield hierarchy are readying a £5million pound deal, which could rise to £8million.

 

Zaha has been on the Liverpool radar since he broke into the Eagles first team last season and their interest has now piqued.

 

Any deal would need to be done quickly as a number of Premier League clubs are said to be chasing the Ivory Coast-born youngster, who also qualifies to play for England.

 

Zaha is a versatile forward who can play either out wide or through the middle and would perfectly suit the system Kenny Dalglish deploys at Liverpool.

 

This move comes amid a spate of speculation surrounding the future of Dirk Kuyt, who has been linked with a move to Inter in recent months.
