French defender in Albion’s sights

West Bromwich Albion

West Brom are ready to reignite their interest in Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho with a loan bid in January.

Albion were linked with Sakho in the summer but the defender decided to remain at Anfield and fight for a place in Jurgen Klopp’s side.

However, Sakho has been unable to force his way into the manager’s plans and it is thought the Frenchman may now be open to a move away when the transfer window reopens.

The Baggies have been tipped to launch a loan move but they could face competition as Italian giants AC Milan and Inter Milan have also been credited with an interest in the out-of-favour Liverpool defender.
