Sakho deciding Liverpool FC exit in next 48 hours

Mamadou Sakho will decide on his Liverpool exit within the next 48 hours.

Jurgen Klopp exiled the France international to the Reds’ under 23 set-up after a series of high-profile breaches during pre-season and the current campaign.

Sakho was sent home from the club’s pre-season tour of America for breaching several of rules and launched an explosive social media outburst just months later.

A host of clubs have expressed interest in the 26-year-old, with Sevilla and Galatasaray both contacting Liverpool about the player’s availability.

Southampton are also in contention as Sakho continues to harbour ambitions of remaining in the Premier League beyond the end of his Anfield career.

Claude Puel identified the centre-back as a replacement for Jose Fonte, who submitted a transfer request after refusing to sign a contract extension.

Liverpool are hopeful of recouping the £18 million they paid Paris Saint-Germain for Sakho in summer 2013.
