Zaha could share workload of Liverpool front three next season

Liverpool should consider moving for Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha this summer.

Do the Reds need a new attacker?

It is safe to say that the Merseyside outfit have not struggled in the attacking department this season.

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have scored 90 goals between them, and that tally could rise in Saturday’s Champions League final against Real Madrid.

However, it is a long season, and if the trio want to continue thriving, they will need to rest at times.

If manager Jurgen Klopp is planning to look at candidates, he should consider Zaha.

The 25-year-old – valued at £22.5m by Transfermarkt – was a crucial member of Palace’s team last season as he helped the club retain their Premier League status.

The former Manchester United player scored nine goals in 28 games, and his style of play would certainly fit in at Liverpool.

Would he sign?

Zaha has regularly been linked with a move away from Selhurst Park, and joining Liverpool’s scintillating attack would surely be attractive to him.

If the Merseyside outfit manage to win the Champions League then they stock will rise.

However, it is unlikely that Salah, Firmino or Mane will be ousted from their positions, therefore Zaha, who can play anyway across the front three, will have to settle for a bit-part role.

If other clubs can offer him a regular starting spot, then it may be difficult for Liverpool to convince him to move to Anfield.
