Liverpool to cash in on Sakho

Liverpool are ready to cash in on Mamadou Sakho this summer, but any potential suitors will have to dig deep into their pockets.

This is because Jurgen Klopp has slapped a £30million price tag on the defenders head, according to the Guardian.

Problematic past

Sakho has had a turbulent time at Anfield, especially in the wake of a failed drugs test last season which saw him miss the Europa League final as well as France’s Euro 2016 campaign, in which saw Liverpool and France lose at the final hurdle.

He then was sent home from Liverpool’s Pre-Season training camp in the USA last year after a row with Jurgen Klopp.

He eventually managed to secure a move away from Anfield, but not until the end of January, where he joined Crystal Palace on loan until the end of the campaign.

Since his arrival at Selhurst Park, Palace have gone from looking like relegation certainties to a very respectable 13th place, seven points clear of the already relegated bottom three.


Palace would be interested in signing the defender but whether they are willing to pay the £30million asking price is yet to be seen.

Also, whether Sakho would be willing to move to Selhurst Park on a permanent deal is also unknown. The defender is attracting interest from former club Paris Saint-German, who look like they will fail to with the Ligue 1 title for the first time since 2012.

Sakho is unwilling to play for PSG’s rival clubs in France, but could be offered a move to Italy, whilst Southampton are also interested in signing the player as a replacement to sign Virgil van Dijk should he leave St Marys this summer.
