Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha would be the perfect Liverpool signing.

The 27-year-old Ivory Coast winger will face off against the Reds at Selhurst Park on Saturday. And he will undoubtedly cause the Liverpool defence problems throughout the game.

Jurgen Klopp should look to boost his attacking options by signing the want-away Palace player.

Mohamed Salah is likely to miss the trip to London due to a recurrence of his ankle injury.

Divock Origi is likely to replace him, however the 24-year-old rarely makes an impact when he starts for Klopp’s side.

Liverpool’s front three is the best in the world. However, the club have a serious drop off from Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane to back up options Divock Origi, Rhian Brewster and Xherdan Shaqiri.

By signing Wilfried Zaha the Reds could bridge the gap between our starting strikers and our back up options.

 

The Crystal Palace forward would inevitably spend a lot of time on the Liverpool bench.

Despite this he could still find himself playing in excess of 30-games a season.

Klopp and co are expected to compete on all front this and every season. We will need quality back-up players in order to do so.

By having that quality on the bench, the Reds would be able to rest and rotate our forward’s on a more frequent basis.

The injury Salah is currently facing has been exacerbated by our need to play him.

If Zaha was in our squad the Egyptian would have been able to sit out and Liverpool could be confident about maintaining our quality at the top end of the pitch.
