Liverpool FC are battling it out with Borussia Dortmund, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur to sign Wilfried Zaha, Goal reporter Ronan Murphy has claimed.

The Reds have been left frustrated in their pursuit of an attacking addition to Jurgen Klopp’s squad in the summer transfer window so far.

The Merseyside outfit saw a deal for Lyon captain Nabil Fekir fall through after the Reds attempted to renegotiate a price due to concerns over his former knee injury.

Liverpool FC are thought to be closing in on a deal to sign Switzerland international Xherdan Shaqiri from relegated Stoke City.

However, Klopp will be keen to add more depth to his squad after Liverpool FC struggled with injuries in the second half of the 2017-18 season.

Goal reporter Murphy took to Twitter to claim that Liverpool FC are interested in Zaha but face stiff competition for the Crystal Palace winger.

Murphy wrote on Twitter: “Borussia Dortmund are battling Everton, Liverpool, and Spurs for Wilfried Zaha, but would have to pay €56m for the Crystal Palace winger. #BVB #EFC #LFC #THFC #CPFC”

Zaha impressed with nine goals and made five assists in 29 games in the Premier League last season.

Liverpool FC have signed Brazil international Fabinho in a £40m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco last month.

The Reds have also added RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita following a £48m agreement with the Bundesliga outfit.
