Fan favourite could leave for unlikely destination plus Liverpool could move for the 'Iranian Lionel Messi'

According to the Liverpool Echo, West Brom could offer Mamadou Sakho a chance to leave Liverpool in January.

In a story that has gone from twist to turn, Mamadou Sakho may well move to West Brom in January on loan with it clear that his career at Liverpool is over. There is terrible irony in the fact that Sakho had multiple opportunites to join Premier League clubs on loan and yet his decision to turn down all loans has lead right back to a loan move.

Jurgen Klopp has made it clear that Sakho has no future at Liverpool and with the Frenchman’s talent wasting away in the reserves, it makes more sense for Sakho to move on. I am hopeful that a loan move can offer the former Paris Saint-Germain defender the chance to prove his worth to Klopp and get back to what he’s good at: defending.

Sakho hasn’t played for Liverpool since August and there is little indication that he will be making any inroads into the first team setup anytime soon, so it’s probably best that he goes out on loan and racks up some game time, even if he doesn’t play for Liverpool next season.

Liverpool could swoop for Iranian forward Sardar Azmoun

Liverpool are looking to find a replacement for Danny Ings after the Englishman picked up a serious knee injury last week. A potential option is FC Rostov’s Sardar Azmoun. The forward has bee dubbed as the ‘Iranian Lionel Messi’ and the Liverpool Echo report that he is on Jurgen Klopp’s radar.

Azmoun has only scored one goal in 11 league appearances this season but is excelling in the Champions League, having scored two goals to make it to a difficult group stage where FC Rostov face the likes of Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid and PSV Eindhoven.
