08:40 UPDATE: Liverpool signing backed

Liverpool should sign Wilfried Zaha this summer as the Crystal Palace star would fit in perfectly under Jurgen Klopp, John Aldridge claims.

“Maybe they [Liverpool] should look into the possibility of recruiting Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace, who is rumoured to have made it clear he wants to move on to play Champions League football,” Aldridge wrote for The Sunday World.

“Zaha has given Liverpool some real problems in the last couple of years and Klopp’s ability to turn talents of his type into consistent performers has to make him the kind of player who could thrive at Anfield.”

Liverpool are expected to have a quiet summer transfer window, with Klopp tipped to make a couple of signings.

But the Evening Standard claim that Arsenal are open to selling both Ozil and Mustafi.

The Gunners will only consider letting the players go should they receive the right offer.
