Crystal Palace’s move for West Ham striker Diafra Sakho in doubt

Crystal Palace’s move for West Ham striker Diafra Sakho is in doubt, according to Sky sources.

It was reported on Thursday that Palace had agreed a fee for Sakho of between £10m and £12m.

However, sources close to the deal now suggest not everybody at Palace is convinced they should be trying to sign Sakho.

One source close to the deal has even suggested Roy Hodgon’s side have pulled out of the move.

Hodgson was asked about the Sakho deal on Friday but refused to be drawn on the issue, saying he preferred to keep “quiet”.

With the Sakho deal seemingly on the rocks, the south London side’s focus may now move to Fiorentina striker Khouma Babacar.

Sky Italy reported on Thursday that Palace have put in a bid for the 24-year-old Senegalese striker.
