Tony Cascarino has backed the 'dangerous' Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha to sign for Liverpool following his comments.

After Palace secured a deserved 3-2 win at Arsenal on Sunday, manager Roy Hodgson came out and said that his player is 'happy' at the London-based club after he stated that he should be playing Champions League football, as quoted by BBC Sport.

Versatile attacker Zaha scored Palace's second goal of the game at the Emirates Stadium and he was a constant threat to Arsenal's backline who simply couldn't cope with him.

 

Speaking to Weekend Sports Breakfast (20/04/2019 at 8:20 am), Cascarino spoke about Zaha and his recent comments about wanting to play at a higher level 

In which top six team suits Zaha: “Well, all of the top-six now are playing attack-minded football,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.

“Liverpool played Palace last year and I went to the game and Jurgen Klopp was consistently on Alexander-Arnold about Wilf Zaha, you could see it from the sideline. Literally tracking his movements, Zaha the whole game.

“I kept thinking after that game, Klopp really does respect Zaha as a player and he knows how dangerous he is. It wouldn't be a surprise to see him at Liverpool, but he could do a job for any of the top-six.”

In recent seasons, Zaha would always be a threat on the ball and he would always showcase the bag of tricks he had at his disposal.

But, his final ball or his finishing would always let him down and it was an area of his game he needed to improve on.

There is no doubt that he has now become a better player because over the course of the season, he has played 31 league matches, scoring nine goals and supplying his teammates with eight assists [transfermarkt]
