Liverpool misfit subject of three-team transfer battle as Klopp looks to get rid in January

Posted by

Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho could reportedly be spoilt for choice in January with AC Milan, Inter and West Bromwich Albion all chasing him.

The French international hasn’t featured for the Reds at all so far this season, as a series of disciplinary issues have led to Jurgen Klopp snubbing him.

Nevertheless, according to The Mirror, that hasn’t put West Brom off even though they failed with a loan offer in the summer, while Milan and Inter are also understood to be keen on taking him to the San Siro on a temporary basis.

The former Paris Saint-Germain ace has been training and playing with the youth team in order to maintain his fitness, and so that will certainly work in his favour with clubs knowing that he won’t arrive badly out of shape.

However, given his lack of first-team football in recent months, it would still arguably be a slight gamble to sign him if with the intention of making him an integral part of the team straight away.

A move from Milan doesn’t seem to make much sense given the presence of Alessio Romagnoli as their first-choice left-sided defender in the middle pairing, although given their start to the season, Inter could do with bolstering their squad in any way possible.

Sakho would also likely be a welcome addition at the Hawthorns to help Tony Pulis’ side keep things tight at the back, and so it may well come down to the player again to decide on his future.

With huge uncertainty over whether or not he’ll be given another chance by Klopp, the best decision for all concerned seemingly looks like leaving in January.

However, there will be a sense of anxiousness though as it was the same situation in the summer and Sakho opted to stay on Merseyside.
