Crystal Palace Submit Bid For Sakho
Reports are emerging from France Football that Crystal Palace have submitted a €28m (£25m) bid for Mamadou Sakho.
There is also interest from West Brom and Leicester city but neither side have submitted a bid at this stage.
Sakho joined Crystal Palace on loan last January and played eight games for them before suffering a ligament injury in April which kept him out for the rest of the season.
He made a massive impact with Palace fans in the eight games he played for the club and was a contender for their player of the season award.
The French centre back fell out of favour with Jurgen Klopp after a number of disciplinary incidents, one of which saw him sent home from the Reds pre season tour of the US in July 2016.
Since then, Sakho has played his football with the under 23’s and does not feature in Jurgen Klopp’s plans despite being light in the centre back department.
Liverpool hoped to get £30m for the out of favour defender but could be tempted by the bid this late in the window.
Update: A deal has been agreed for the transfer of Mamadou Sakho to Crystal Palace for a fee of £20m. The fee could rise to £30m with add ons.
