Sevilla ponder Liverpool’s Sakho

Sevilla are considering a bid for Liverpool’s out-of-favour defender Mamadou Sakho, although reports say they will need to negotiate a lower price for his transfer.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are demanding €30m before sanctioning the sale of the French defender, who joined Crystal Palace on loan last season after an alleged breakdown in relationships at Anfield.

The 27-year-old could replace Adil Rami, who has joined Marseille, at Sanchez Pizjuan as Los Rojiblancos sporting director Oscar Arias is said by Estadio Deportivo to be a keen admirer.

However, the Andalucians would not be able to fund a permanent transfer for such a high transfer value, with either a significantly reduced transfer fee or temporary loan deal the most likely options.
