Contact Made: Liverpool handed big chance to seal transfer for 'exceptional' £20m star. Done deal in January?

West Ham have reportedly made contact with one of Liverpool's players to discuss the possibility of a January transfer.

According to French newspaper Le10 Sport:

"West Ham have already made an approach to sign Liverpool's Mamadou Sakho, who is interested in a deal to revive his career about several difficult months".

This follows a report in France Football earlier this month, which claimed:

"Sakho is 99.9% certain to leave Anfield in January after being banished by Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp".

I maintain that Klopp's continued isolation of Sakho is disrespectful and unwarranted. He made his mistakes, and paid the price, so continually marginalising the defender smacks of vindictiveness and/or holding a grudge.

That said, even if Sakho returned to the fold, it's unlikely he'd make the first XI. The Matip/Lovren partnership is blossoming (only one goal in the last four games), and the club has now kept three clean sheets in a row.

Clearly, it's time to leave, and after rejecting a move in the summer (as he was entitled to do), I doubt Sakho will think twice about leaving now.

West Ham need Sakho; Liverpool do not, so the move makes sense.

Bev is having her bone marrow transplant today (Wed19th April). It's a big operation, and she'll be on life support for the duration. The recovery process is going to be very tough and unfortunately carries a great deal of risk with regards to infection, which could be life threatening due to the process requiring her immune system to have been purposefully wiped out beforehand (so that it doesn't f!ght against/reject the transplant). Sadly, the preparation treatment has adversely affected her heart as well and currently it is beating much lower than it should be so we have to hope that soon starts to recover as well. More HERE.
