The Daily Mail is reporting that Arsenal and Liverpool may be priced out of a move for Mamadou Sakho due to the £20m price tag. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger tends to have excellent knowledge of young French players and Sakho has been on his radar for some time. Liverpool’s Damien Comoli is also said to be a big fan. Arsene Wenger does have other targets and if he fails to sign this talented 21 year old he may turn his attentions to Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa or Emir Sprahic.

Despite his young age Sakho has gained a fair amount of experience. He has played nearly 100 league games for Paris Saint-Germain and represented France at various youth levels. Between 2006 and 2008, Sakho played for the French U16, U17, U18 and U19 making over 30 appearances in total. Between 2008-2010 Sakho has gone on to represent the U21’s and the full French team. Sakho also seems to have some ability as a leader and has served as a captain in most of the French youth teams he has played in. This includes captaining the French U21 team. His 6ft2in frame suggests that he has required presence to be a top quality central defender and he has a knack of scoring vital goals, providing 4 league goals this season alone.

£20m for Mamadou Sakho is crazy! Liverpool would be better off looking elsewhere for a defender. Gary Cahill from Bolton would be a much better option to spend £20m on.

    Will you provide any reasons why he isn’t worth it? This article is a list of his achievements with “£20m for Mamadou Sakho is crazy!” tagged on the end.

    And seriously, Gary Cahill? Over priced decent English defender. Me thinks somebody listens to Harry Redknapp too much.

    How dare you say 20million pounds is too much for Sakho if Chelsea got David Luiz for 23. Luis has justified his pricetag and Sakho would be a bargain too! Fine we could do our business right and get him for 15 or 18m but I wouldn’t even spend more than 12 on Cahill! Sakho is also very comfortable at left back. He is tall, strong, commanding and is a no-nonsense guy. He would be our new Hyppia. 3.Izaguirre 5.Sakho. 6 Agger 2 Kelly! What a backfour? Some type of players don’t just come cheap!
