A lifeline for Mamadou Sakho may arrive in the form of Crystal Palace who are reportedly hoping to cut a deadline-day move for the Liverpool outcast, as manager Sam Allardyce looks to save the club from a relegation dogfight.
According to Sky Sports News HQ, the Eagles are trying to execute a last-gasp move for Sakho before the transfer window closes on Tuesday evening.
Having already strengthened his defence this week after securing the services of Sunderland left-back Patrick van Aanholt. Allardyce believes that Sakho could be another viable addition after failing to make an appearance for the Reds this season.
Not to be sold on the cheap
The centre-back has fallen out with Jurgen Klopp, but the manager does not want to sell him on the cheap. Liverpool are holding firm on their £20m valuation of Sakho, despite not making a first-team appearance since April. Meanwhile, his wages are also an issue, with Sakho reportedly still on £100,000 a week at Anfield.
