Reds want £30m for defender

Liverpool have told Crystal Palace they will have to splash out a mammoth £30million if they wish to sign Mamadou Sakho in the summer.

The defender was shipped out to Selhurst Park on loan following a fall out with Reds boss Jurgen Klopp, and played a huge part in helping the Eagles fight off the threat of relegation.

Palace won five out of seven games that Sakho played in, before a knee ligament injury curtailed his season, and it is no surprise that Sam Allardyce is keen to wrap up a permanent deal.

"You can’t con anyone that he didn’t make a massive difference, we won some massive games with him,” Eagles chairman Steve Parish said.

“He’s a big character, he’s got the respect of all the players, and it’s one we’d like to do. But, of course, we have a lot of things we need to do in the summer, and the money needs to work for us and for Liverpool.”

However it remains to be seen if they will go as high as £30million, as the player’s no doubt large wage demands will also have to be taken into consideration.
