Liverpool line up dazzling winger who has excelled in 16/17

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 20:00 Dec 24th 2016

When it comes to conducting his transfer business, Jürgen Klopp is not a man to be swayed by reputation, preferring instead to bring in individuals that he feels are suited to his way of playing.

Joel Matip, Georginio Wijnaldum and Sadio Mane are all examples of this policy, each filling a specific role in the German’s evolving Liverpool team.

WILFRIED ZAHA

Those three summer signings all impressed the former Borussia Dortmund boss in direct competition and now reports in the Daily Star suggest that Wilfried Zaha has caught his eye in similar circumstances.

Fast-approaching his 100th Premier League appearance, most of which have come for Crystal Palace, the 24-year-old has really taken his game up a notch this season:

In 16 top-flight outings, including one as a substitute, the tricky winger has been directly involved in nine goals, already matching his tally from the previous two seasons combined.

To put things in context, Mane has played a significant part in 12 Premier League goals this term, though the Senegal international is playing for a far stronger side.

    Hope to see Zaha in LFC. He is suitable for Klopp style.
