Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has enquired about Crystal Palace starlet Wilfried Zaha, making a phone call to the championship club manager Dougie Freedman, according to the Daily Mail.

The Reds have been monitoring the player for the best part of 18 months and it is believed that an offer around the region of £10 million could land the player.

The report reveals that Kenny Dalglish made a phone call to Freedman, enquiring about the player's character and attitude over his football-skills.

A possible stumbling block to an immediate deal is Palace's reluctance to sell their player before the Carling Cup semi-final second-leg against Cardiff City on January 24. Failure to reach the final at Wembley, however, could see the club cashing in on their priced asset.

The 19-year-old is highly rated amongst Premier League giants, with Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini both believed to be admirers of the youngster.

Newcastle United are also interested in the England Under-19 international and are reportedly looking to open talks with the championship side.
