Liverpool have been urged to land Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha as he’d be the ‘perfect’ addition to their strikeforce.

Zaha continues to be mentioned with a move away from Selhurst Park but starred for the club in their opening-day win over Southampton.

Jurgen Klopp boasts one of the most dangerous forward lines in world football but Tony Cascarino says the Ivorian would be a good signing for the Reds.

Tony told The Times: “It is difficult to see where Wilfried Zaha could go. I think he would be perfect for Liverpool.

“He would put pressure on the frontline trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

“But the champions are unlikely to want to pay for a back-up player the kind of fee Palace are demanding.”

The Anfield outfit got their title defence off to a shaky start as the club edged out a seven-goal thriller against Leeds.

Mohamed smashed a hat-trick as his late penalty saw the Reds survive a scare to edge a seven-goal thriller against Leeds United on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has reportedly identified Borussia Monchengladbach star Denis Zakaria as a future signing.

Given the financial implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, Liverpool are reluctant to spend big during the summer market, a stance which has put their chase of the Spain international Thiago Alcantara in jeopardy.

However, providing that funds are saved over the next nine months, the Merseyside side may be in a position to splash the cash in 2021.

According to Bild, Jurgen is interested in signing Zakaria, whom Monchengladbach are understood to value in the region of £37m.
