Crystal Palace unwilling to meet Liverpool’s £30 million Mamadou Sakho valuation

 3 May 2017

Crystal Palace are unlikely to meet Liverpool’s lofty valuation for centre-back Mamadou Sakho this summer, their chairman has revealed.

Sakho is currently on loan with the Eagles, and has been in excellent form since making the switch to Selhurst Park in January.

Though he is currently sidelined with a knee injury picked up in April’s 1-0 loss to Tottenham, Sakho is seen as a key player by Sam Allardyce, and a priority target.

Liverpool are looking to seal a £30 million deal for Sakho at the end of the season, with Napoli, AS Roma and Southampton joining Palace in the pursuit.

But speaking to BT Sport, Palace chairman Steve Parish suggested the club would be “sensible” in their advances for the France international.

“We’d love to [keep him], he’s been a massive, massive part of getting us to this stage,” he said, with Palace set to beat the drop this season.

“He’s a leader, he’s a fantastic character, good player, we would love to try and make that deal happen.

“But it takes two sides to make a deal and everybody has got to be reasonable.

“So if we can do something sensible we would be happy to do it.”
