Mamadou Sakho’s move to Crystal Palace could still be on as the London club see the Frenchman as their number one centre-back option for the summer. It was believed that the club would not be able to afford the defender, who was on loan at the Eagles last season, but Melissa Reddy claims via Goal that the Frenchman has already agreed personal terms with Palace.
The report further adds that Sakho is set to return to Melwood tomorrow for pre-season training and has been working extra hard at the club’s training ground to return to full fitness.
The defender picked up a season-ending injury during the latter stages of last season but did help the Eagles avoid relegation, thanks to a number of impressive displays.
Frank de Boer, the new manager of Palace, had even suggested that he would be looking at other players to fix their hole in defence but this report suggests otherwise.
Even Palace’s chairman, Steve Parish, had suggested that the club would not pay over the odds for Sakho and was waiting to see if we were willing to budge on our valuation of the former PSG man.
We still want close to £30million for the 27-year-old Frenchman, and he does not really have a future at the club, irrespective of whether he does move away or not.
Sakho spent most of last season playing for the U-23 before making the switch to Palace in the winter transfer window.
With prices reaching crazy levels, holding out for £30million does make sense. Sakho is a player that has performed well for both us and Palace. Further, he certainly made the defence of the Eagles better and will look to continue his good form ahead of a World Cup year.
This seems like a similar situation to the Christian Benteke one. The Belgian’s asking price was also high for Palace initially at the start of last season but the deal was completed after a lot of haggling.
We made a pretty sum by selling the striker back then and we seem set to achieve a similar deal by selling Sakho to Palace this time around.
“It’s the wrong club for him” – ESPN pundit urges American star to snub Chelsea and join Liverpool
The American sensation has been linked (h/t Guardian ) with a move to the Premier League with Chelsea and Liverpool interested in the winger.
Pulisic has found starts hard to come at the Bundesliga leaders and Mariner was quoted by the Express saying:
“No, don’t do it.
“It’s the wrong club for him.
“He’s just going to go into a hopper of decent footballers who eventually go out on loan.
“Is he going to get in the team on this present form? No he’s not.
The former Gunner added that Pulisic is still developing as a player and Liverpool would be great for him, especially because we have Jurgen Klopp
“If you were to ask me for a club he should go to – Liverpool.
“Klopp understands the Bundesliga, he understands what it takes to mould a player. He knows him very, very well.
“If Pulisic were to go to Liverpool, the nurturing and the way that Klopp puts his arm around players, I think it would be a fabulous move for him.”
The 20-year-old would be an incredible signing for the Reds and would add more firepower to our star-studded attack.
Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino haven’t been firing on all cylinders this season but the addition of Pulisic could change that.
The American would not come on the cheap but given he has a ton of potential and is only 20, Klopp should take a punt on the Dortmund youngster.

The attacker had to be helped off the pitch by his teammates despite the team winning the game. The Metro reports that Mane had the chance to double Senegal’s lead in the game but missed his chance.
Many supporters turned on the 26-year-old and booed him for the miss. When the match ended, Mane fell to the ground, tearing up.
His teammates tried to help him up but the Liverpool star fell once again before he was taken off the pitch.
Mane has struggled to perform for Liverpool this season, and it seems his form deserted him for the national side too.

Although Senegal won the game, the reaction from Mane was a little surprising. This reaction reminds us of that 3-3 draw against Crystal Palace with Luis Suarez breaking down after the match ended.
The Senegal forward is one of our most important players and we need to have him in the right frame of mind for the rest of the season.
The 26-year-old has seven goals for us this season, which isn’t a bad return, but we haven’t seen the best of our attackers yet.
Our next game is a tough tie against Watford at Vicarage Road, and the Senegalese attacker has to be at his best if we are to pick up the three points.
Liverpool keeping an eye on 18-year-old Brazilian sensation
The 18-year-old recently played for the senior Atletico Mineiro side and is expected to follow the “lead” by Gabriel Jesus, as per the report.
Roberto plays as an attacking midfielder and has also interested the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham and Chelsea, as per the report.
The 18-year-old could be another great Brazilian coming through the ranks and it will be interesting to see if we follow up with our interest.
Liverpool have a few Brazilian internationals in their side with Alisson and Fabinho joining in the summer. Roberto Firmino has enjoyed a fantastic spell under Jurgen Klopp and seems to be getting better with each season under his belt.
The Reds have to be wary regarding South American youngsters as we have another Brazilian on the books, Allan, that has had trouble getting work permits in Britain.
The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt but hasn’t played a single competitive game for the Reds since joining in 2015.
Roberto could be a star in the making and if he wants to develop into the finished article, there is no better place than Liverpool.
Klopp has one of the best youth teams in England, and the German is known for handing chances to youngsters at the club.
