Liverpool are reportedly ready to part ways with their on-loan defender Mamadou Sakho for a fee around £30m this summer.

The defender fell out of favour with Jurgen Klopp last summer and was sent out on loan to Crystal Palace.

But after injuring himself against Tottenham last month, the Frenchman is set for a return to Anfield.

However, with Klopp ready to part company with some of the fringe stars, the Reds are demanding a big fee for Sakho.

It is said the Reds are well aware clubs will want to sign the 27-year-old.

Liverpool paid £18m for him when they signed him in September 2013 from Paris Saint-Germain.

A knee ligament injury sustained against Tottenham Hotspur last month curtailed his loan spell – Sam Allardyce conceded last week that Sakho is unlikely to feature at Manchester United on the final afternoon – though the player has undergone his rehabilitation at Palace and in his native France.

He was at Selhurst Park on Sunday for the 4-0 victory against Hull City, which guaranteed Palace’s Premier League status, and took part in the post-match lap of appreciation.
