Liverpool centre back Mamadou Sakho finds himself the subject of interest from Premier League club West Bromwich Albion.
Liverpool have been finding it harder to offload troublemaker Mamadou Sakho this summer than they might’ve hoped but Tony Pulis may have offered them fresh hope.
The French defender has been the subject of interest from numerous Premier League clubs over the last three months and West Brom have become the latest to join the ‘race’ for the centre halves’ signature.
The BBC report that manager Tony Pulis “is now talking” to Liverpool to sound out a potential transfer in case Manchester City return with a second bid for Jonny Evans who was the subject of a surprising £18m offer earlier this week.
If Pulis does decide to sanction a bid for the Liverpool man, it will likely have to be worth more than double the Baggies current club record of £13m paid for Nacer Chadli last summer.
While some Liverpool fans have called for Sakho to be reintroduced to the first-team after the club’s first two fixtures of the new campaign saw dodgy-at-best defensive displays, it was never going to be a likely situation with Klopp having called both his attitude and character into question last summer.
Southampton, West Ham United, AS Roma and Crystal Palace have all been linked with a move for the defender over the course of the summer but so far no club has met the Reds’ £30m valuation.
