Liverpool & Arsenal told to pay £20m to land Frenchman – reports

Published Add your comment

Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly set their price for highly-rated Arsenal and Liverpool target Mamadou Sakho.

The 21-year-old continues to gather plaudits for his commanding displays for both club and country and is thought to be on the summer wish-list of several clubs in both England and on the continent.

Liverpool and Arsenal have been frequently linked with the France defender and now, according to the Daily Mail, PSG have told Sakho’s suitors that £20 million will be enough to land him.

The centre-back is said to have been on the respective radars of Arsene Wenger and Damien Comolli for some time, with the Arsenal boss and Liverpool director of football both keen to secure a summer deal.

However, PSG’s valuation could prove to be a stumbling block for the usually frugal Wenger, who would have to break his transfer record to bring Sakho to Arsenal.


Liverpool, meanwhile, are expected to invest heavily again during the transfer window after January yielded Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll for a combined total of £58 million.

The acquisition of a new centre-back is thought to be higher on the list of priorities for Arsenal than Liverpool, but both clubs hold the youngster in high esteem.

Along with Sakho, Arsenal and Liverpool are both also reportedly chasing Bolton centre-half Gary Cahill.
