The news was an absolute surprise! Reports emerged claiming that Tottenham have made an enquiry about signing Mamadou Sakho this summer. According to Vital Spurs, Tottenham have begun negotiations for Sakho by making a transfer enquiry. Surprised? I was surprised as much as you are!
Sakho totally fell out of favour with Jurgen Klopp before the start of 2016/17 season and was frozen out of the team for few months before moving out on loan to Crystal Palace.
The Frenchman played an important role in Crystal Palace staying afloat in the Premier League and became an instant favourite at Selhurst Park. However, Palace have not shown too much interest in taking the lad permanently and Sakho is now once again a Liverpool player.
Sakho is one of very few players in the Liverpool squad who divide opinions like Arsene Wenger does at Arsenal. While some fans feel Sakho would be a good option for Klopp to have, some of them feel it would be better if Jurgen sold the defender for the right price.
The news emerged and the Liverpool faithful were as usual vocal on Twitter and expressed their opinion on the same. Here’s how the fans reacted to the news.
Selling him to Tottenham will be a big big mistake!

Good. Now put it up to £40mill. Boom
— neil (@Thompson2Neil) June 8, 2017
Better off keeping him if we can’t get VVD or other top class defender – certainly don’t sell such a good player to a direct rival!

Only sell to them if it’s 40 mill minimum, can’t sell to a rival for a fair price

Mad if we sell him to spurs imo

If Liverpool must sell sakho, it should be outside the league. You don’t value what you have, until you loose it. Sakho’s can plays good….

Can we Do a change maybe? Sakho is a Worldclass defender!
— Peter (@LFCKINGS) June 8, 2017
Mmmm interesting. The more money we get the more 2 spend obviously but to sell to a top 4 competitor? But if Klopp doesn’t rate
— Chris (@chrisevans442) June 8, 2017
Not for sale
— Roger Borgstrand (@RogerBorgstran1) June 8, 2017
At this rate we better keep him!
— Stuart Craig (@bobafett26) June 8, 2017
Now all those idiots who wanted him out will start demanding high fee which is madness.
