Reds can’t get rid of Sakho

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

LIVER­POOL may be un­able to sell Ma­madou Sakho to a ri­val Premier League club, ac­cord­ing to re­ports.

Sakho has been marginalised by Jur­gen Klopp this sea­son. The 26-year-old hasn’t had a sin­gle minute of first-team ac­tion for Liver­pool this term.

Sakho fell out of favour with Klopp af­ter he was sent home early from the club’s pre-sea­son tour for ill dis­ci­pline.

West Brom tried to land the de­fender on loan over the sum­mer, but saw their of­fer re­jected.

And now ac­cord­ing to The Sun, the Bag­gies have aban­doned their in­ter­est.

The re­port sug­gests Tony Pulis would pre­fer to strengthen his squad in other ar­eas.

It is thought the Mid­lands out­fit are keen to bring a striker and a mid­fielder to the club.

As it stands, this could clear the way for French­man Sakho to leave the Premier League al­to­gether.

It is be­lieved Serie A gi­ants In­ter Mi­lan and AC Mi­lan will bat­tle it out for his sig­na­ture.

Sakho’s cur­rent club booked their place in the semi­fi­nals of the EFL Cup af­ter beat­ing Leeds 2-0 at An­field yes­ter­day. – Ex­press News­pa­pers
