Sakho To Be Sold In January

According to James Pearce at The Liverpool Echo, Jurgen Klopp will sell Mamadou Sakho in the January transfer window.

The central defender who arrived from Paris Saint Germain in 2013 for a fee of £18m has spent the entirety of this season so far playing for the U23 squad after a number of disciplinary issues since Klopp’s arrival.

Sakho, who enjoys somewhat of a cult following from the Liverpool fans took to social media back in September of this year to express his feelings about not being included in the first team and incurred the wrath of Jurgen Klopp for the second time after being sent home from the Reds pre-season tour of America after a number of disciplinary infringements, including arriving late for the plane and interrupting the manager while he was being interviewed by LFC TV.

Sakho was also cleared of failing a drugs test towards the end of last season which meant he missed the League Cup and Europa League finals

The writing has been on the wall for Sakho for some time after he turned down a number of loan offers during the summer to stay and fight for his place but it is obvious now to all that this will be a futile excercise as he is not part of Klopp’s plans and has fallen behind Lucas Leiva in the pecking order for positions in the centre of defence.

Pearce is reporting that Klopp’s comments mean he is sure to be sold in January.

Klopp said, “Nothing has changed, he is not in these plans for the first team. The first team squad is here (at Melwood). You know all this.”

Sakho’s contract runs until 2020 and West Brom & Stoke are said to be interested in securing the centre back’s signature after having loan requests turned down in the summer. He has made 80 appearances for the reds since he signed in 2013, scoring three goals.
