Liverpool are keeping a keen eye on Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha, although Chelsea and Spurs are, too.
This is according to Ed Aarons of the Guardian, who also claims the Ivory Coast international will be offered a bumper contract extension on his current £110k/week terms.

Zaha has pace to burn, is exceptionally skilful and is a menace every time he’s on his game.
His end product, especially for a player of his talents, is poor, however. This season just gone, in which Zaha was largely praised throughout, he registered nine Premier League goals and three assists.
This is despite being the one player everything goes through at Palace.
For Liverpool, Zaha would play a rotational role as backup for our wide players – Mo Salah and Sadio Mane.
He cannot play in any of the central midfield positions and isn’t fit for the centre-forward role, either.
We’d happily take him if it wasn’t for the massive price-tag we expect to see put on his head by the Eagles…
For the money, we just think there’s better options available outside of the Premier League.
