Liverpool have joined the hunt to sign Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha, according to the Sun.

The newspaper claims that the 25-year-old is prepared to leave Selhurst Park at the end of the season to play European football elsewhere.

It is understood that Liverpool are battling alongside Chelsea and Manchester City for the Ivory Coast International, who is classified as a homegrown player still.

The report details that the Premier League heavyweights are targeting £50million deals for the rapid attacker, who has played a key role in the club avoid relegation this season.

Zaha is a dazzling attacker that previously endured a rough spell with Manchester United earlier in his career, but has recreated himself at Palace.

Good move for Liverpool?

Anfield could be the perfect next step for Zaha in his career and he looks ready to play for a leading side.

He has thrived as a centre-forward for large spells this campaign, but also has the pace and trickery to play out wide.

Zaha has scored eight goals and supplied five assists this season in just 28 games, but there is every chance he could better those numbers in a Liverpool team that create a waves of chances.

Likely to happen?

Zaha seems destined to leave Palace in the near future given the quality of his performances and Liverpool may be the right fit.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have proven they are willing to pay the big money in recent transfer windows and reaching the Champions League final this season shows they are moving in the right direction.
