Though the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have their eyes firmly fixed on the TV as their beloved Reds take on Chelsea in a vitally important top of the table clash, let’s not forget Deadline Day.
Clearly, Jurgen Klopp’s attention is firmly focused on proceedings at Anfield tonight, though reports from the Daily Telegraph have provided some of the Merseyside drinkers with something to think about at least. They claim outcast defender Mamadou Sakho has agreed terms over a potential loan switch to Crystal Palace.
As popular as the Frenchman proved at times last season, the 26-year-old hasn’t featured at all this term after falling out with Klopp. It’s thought the former PSG ace has an agreement with the Eagles, though both clubs are said to be working on the terms of a deal with the deadline looming.
Over the course of the January transfer window, there have been reports that the Kop titans would seek around £20m for the France international, a figure that had our local Liverpool fans chomping at the bit. However, they’d just as happily wave Sakho off on loan, such is the peripheral nature of his standing right now.
Will Liverpool let Sakho leave? Let us know below..
