Liverpool are still keen on signing Wilfried Zaha, while Manchester United have also reportedly shown interest in the Crystal Palace forward.

Zaha has been linked with a move to Anfield on a number of occasions over the past twelve months, and ccording to the Daily Mail, Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has spoken to Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman to discuss the availability of the 19-year-old, who is valued at around £10million.

And according to Friday's report, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has also spoken to Freedman about the teenager.

Zaha only recently committed his future to the Eagles, agreeing a new five-and-a-half-year deal with the club last month.

Freedman has been assured by Palace co-owner Steve Parish that Zaha will not leave the club before the Carling Cup semi-final second leg against Cardiff on January 24th, where advancing to the Wembley final will likely see the player remain at the club for the rest of the season.

But failure to reach the final could see Palace cash in on their prize asset, with the recently signed contract set to bump up his asking price.

Arsenal, Manchester City and Newcastle have also shown interest in the Ivory Coast-born youngster, who has already represented England at Under-19 level.
