£20m Liverpool valuation of Sakho a problem for Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace are hoping to sign Mamadou Sakho from Liverpool.

Sky Sports is reporting that the Eagles are keen to push through a deal for the French defender before tomorrow night's transfer deadline.

However, Sky reporter Kaveh Solhekol suggests Liverpool's £20million valuation and Sakho's significant wages are providing a stumbling block for Palace.

Sakho has been frozen out by Reds boss Jurgen Klopp this season but the Anfield club will only sell the 26-year-old centre-back for a price that suits them.

Southampton and Spartak Moscow remain in the picture for the former PSG man.
