Report: Liverpool enter Mamadou Sakho talks

Liverpool have opened talks with Paris Saint-Germain over signing Mamadou Sakho, according to reports.

Liverpool have begun talks with Paris Saint-Germain over the signing of Mamadou Sakho, according to reports.

The defender is eager to leave the Parc des Princes in order to secure regular football ahead of the 2014 World Cup, having fallen behind Thiago Silva, Alex and Marquinhos in the pecking order.

While Manchester City are alleged to be keeping an eye on the 23-year-old, Sports Direct News claims that the Reds have opened talks with the Parisiens over a potential deal for Sakho.

Despite possessing Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel and Kolo Toure, Merseysiders manager Brendan Rodgers is thought to be keen on adding another centre-back to his ranks with the news that Sebastian Coates is likely to miss the rest of the season through injury.

Arsenal are also supposedly interested in Sakho.
