Liverpool target Wilfried Zaha will be allowed to leave for the right price, according to Crystal Palace co-owner Steve Parish.

The England Under-21 international was reported to have been approached by the Anfield club in the January transfer window, but the Eagles held strong and even turned down a £7million bid from Bolton Wanderers.

Kenny Dalglish was Reds manager then, but Zaha’s performances – especially in Palace’s incredible Carling Cup win at Old Trafford – last season brought a lot of interest from Premier League teams.

The south London club’s finances mean it would be difficult for them to turn down an offer from a club such as Liverpool but Parish was hopeful no such bid would not come, despite their being unable to resist.

“I guess for a club like Palace, everyone's got a price,” he told the BBC.

“It's a horrible thing to say in a way because we'd love to see a team succeed with the youth of the area at the heart of the team.

“Fingers crossed, we don't get a big offer for Wilfried or Jonny [Williams] that we're forced to consider.”

Kenny Dalglish’s sacking last month could have ended Liverpool’s interest, but the transfer policy brought in by owners Fenway Sports Group – predominantly purchasing promising young talent – mean Zaha would be a likely target for them.
