Wilfried Zaha is keen on a summer switch to Liverpool when his contract at Crystal Palace expires, according to reports.
The 29-year-old is in the final year of his deal at Selhurst Park and is free to talk to foreign clubs over a free transfer from January – and domestic sides at the end of the season.
Eagles boss Patrick Vieira recently stated that he is not worried about the Ivorian’s future in south London.
But with the winger chipping in with five Premier League goals from nine games this season so far, he knows plenty of clubs will be closely monitoring his situation.
He once again stole the show for Palace in Tuesday’s 2-1 comeback victory against Wolves where he fired in the winner in the 69th minute.
And, according to Calciomercato, if Zaha had it his way, he will be lighting up Anfield next season.
The Italian news outlet has stated the former Manchester United forward is keen on a move to the Reds.
And they have declared that the player is ‘very fond’ of Jurgen Klopp‘s side.

Liverpool could jump at the chance to snap up Zaha where he would replace Sadio Mane, who left to join Bayern Munich in the summer.
The Merseyside outfit have struggled to hit their usual heights this term, with Mohamed Salah plagued by inconsistent performances.
Meanwhile Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota are currently out injured, which could see Klopp push for a move to sign Zaha in a cut-price deal in the winter transfer window.
But Liverpool know they will have a battle on their hands to secure his services, with talkSPORT’s Gabriel Agbonlahor urging Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea to try and nab him.
The former Aston Villa captain said: “I don’t think that he’s missed his chance. Knowing that his contract is up next summer, he can go on a free transfer to a big club.
“I mean if you’re an Arsenal, Spurs or Chelsea, you’re snapping him up on a three-year contract at the age of 30.
“He’s been playing in the Premier League for a long time but his hunger is still there and he lifts the crowd.
“He’s a great player and hopefully he gets that big move.”
It’s not just this season that Zaha has impressed, with the wide man scoring 14 top-flight goals in 2022 so far.
Only Tottenham pair Harry Kane (22) and Heung-Min Son (18), Brentford striker Ivan Toney (16) and Manchester City marksman Erling Haaland (15) have fired in more.
