West Bromwich Albion might be on their way to losing one of the most dependable players in the form of the Jonny Evans, who has been linked with a move away from the Hawthorns, the Etihad Stadium being his most probable destination. The Northern Ireland international has been nothing less than a rock in the backline for the Baggies since his arrival at the club from Manchester United and it goes without saying that Tony Pulis, their current coach, is going to find it pretty difficult to get a suitable replacement for him.

However, the Baggies coach has got his priorities set and is looking to make an ambitious bid for the Liverpool outcast Mamadou Sakho and bring him in as a probable replacement for Evans in the next few days. The Reds’ defender has a price tag of £30 million on him, and Pulis reportedly is ready to match the price, which shows his desperation and determination to get the French international on his side for this season.

The player has been in fine form of late and made it possible for Crystal Palace to stay back in the top flight from a relegation threatened position in the last term, while he was sent to play for the Eagles in the second half of the season.

Sakho had an alleged altercation with the current coach Jurgen Klopp during their pre-season tour last summer, which led to his sending back and since then, the defender has been in exile.

With the situation not looking to take a positive turn for him anytime soon, the Frenchman is quite eager to make a move out of his current club and continue his career with another top flight club. Crystal Palace tried their level best to get the player on a permanent basis in their team after his superb display in the last term for them on loan, but were compelled to cool their interest in Sakho given his hefty price tag that has been slapped on him by the Reds this summer.

However, it seems the Baggies are ready to go that extra mile to get their desired player into the side for the new season and are willing to bid big this summer. It will definitely be a very vital addition for West Bromwich Albion side for the rest of the season and will surely make their already strong backline have an efficacious effect on the results of their forthcoming matches.
