Liverpool is willing to allow defender Mahmadou Sakho leave the club this summer. The Frenchman was frozen out of the team by Jurgen Klopp last season, and the German is not ready to reintegrate him into his squad for next season.
He joined Crystal Palace on loan on deadline day of the winter transfer window and has been very vital to the Eagles escaping relegation this season. He helped them keep three straight clean sheets when he was introduced into the club’s first team. But a ligament injury has since curtailed his development.
Liverpool has raised their asking price for the defender after his latest performances for Palace. The Reds are looking for a least £30 million for the defender whom they signed for £17 million in the summer of 2013.
Liverpool needs to sign a new centre-back, as they look likely to compete in the Champions League next season, and they hope to use some of the funds from the sale of Sakho to move for a top-class defender.
