Swansea City join race to sign Mamadou Sakho

Swansea City have become the latest side to enter the race to sign Mamadou Sakho.

Several clubs are already chasing the Liverpool outcast, who is set to decide his fate within the next 48 hours, including Southampton, Sevilla and Galatasaray.

But with the France international keen to remain in the Premier League, the Welsh club have formally registered their interest with Anfield officials.

New Swansea manager Paul Clement is keen to add Sakho to his ranks as they prepare to battle for their top-flight survival for the remainder of this season.

Reports in Spain claim that the 26-year-old, who remains banished to Liverpool’s under 23 set-up, has already rejected Sevilla’s overtures.

According to Estadio Deportivo, Sakho has turned down the chance to play with the Champions League club due to his preference of staying in the English top flight.
