Liver­pool slap RM165m price tag on Sakho

New Straits Times - - Sport -

LON­DON: Liver­pool will look to se­cure a fee in the re­gion of £30 mil­lion (RM165 mil­lion) for Ma­madou Sakho when his An­field ca­reer ends this summer.

The France in­ter­na­tional de­fender spent the sec­ond half of the cur­rent cam­paign on loan at Crys­tal Palace and made an im­pact in help­ing Sam Al­lardyce’s side avoid rel­e­ga­tion.

His sea­son ended pre­ma­turely when he suf­fered a knee in­jury against Tot­ten­ham last month.

Sakho re­mained at Sel­hurst Park to un­dergo treat­ment, in the hope he would be fit for the fi­nal game at Manch­ester United on Sun­day, and Palace would like to keep him in Lon­don for the fore­see­able fu­ture. West Brom wanted him last August, too.

He will con­tinue to as­sess his op­tions, as other clubs have ex­pressed an in­ter­est.

Southamp­ton, who are ex­pected to lose Vir­gil Van Dijk when the win­dow opens, en­quired about Sakho in Jan­uary while Napoli have mon­i­tored his po­si­tion.

Liver­pool ex­pect there will be more clubs who will con­tact them
