Mamadou Sakho is expected to leave Liverpool in the January transfer window, after Jurgen Klopp publicly accepted he doesn’t have a future at the Merseyside club.
The French defender has been linked with a number of clubs, including Ligue 1 side Lille.
However, these reports has been dismissed by Lille’s new CEO, Marc Ingla, in ax exclusive interview to RMC Sport.
Asked about Sakho, as well as Manchester United’s Memphis Depay: “I prefer not to be so specific! But I think they will not come to the Lille, if you want an answer. We must ask the technical manager of today, also to Luis Campos, but according to my info, no.”
Sakho hasn’t made a single appearance for Liverpool this season, after Klopp also sent him back to Merseyside early from the club’s pre-season tour on disciplinary grounds.
West Brom were reportedly keen on signing Sakho in the summer, but latest reports suggest they have cooled down their interest in the Frenchman. The 26-year-old has been featuring regularly for the Liverpool U23s, but might find it difficult to find a suitable club in January.
Turkish clubs have been interested but Sakho’s agent has made it clear he’d much prefer to stay in the Premier League.
