​Mamadou Sakho's Anfield nightmare could soon be over with reports from Turkey suggesting that Galatasaray are sending officials over to England to discuss a possible transfer. 


Sakho has yet to feature for Jurgen Klopp's side this term and the Liverpool manager stated only last month that the Frenchman has no future at the club after displaying poor levels of commitment in training. 

With the transfer window currently open, the defender is expected to leave the Reds in the coming weeks, but whilst the likes of Southampton and Swansea have been linked with the centre-back, Turkish newspaper Güneş Gazetesi (via ​Sportslens) understand that Galatasaray officials are traveling to Merseyside to discuss a possible deal with both the player and his club. 


The Super Lig club are unlikely to be able to meet Liverpool's price tag of £20m, so they will be hoping to persuade the Reds to lower the fee, as well as convincing Sakho himself that a move to Turkey would be preferable

With the player's contract currently running until 2020, Liverpool are desperate to sell their man and remove his ​£75k weekly salary from their wage bill. 


But though Sakho has been capped 28 times by France, Klopp's decision to publicise the defender's position at the club means that any potential bidders are unlikely to submit a substantial offer, considering the sale would also be in Liverpool's interests. 


The 26-year-old has spent most of the season playing for the Reds' U23 team and will almost certainly not be adding to his 80 first team appearances for the club, as his inevitable departure from Anfield edges ever nearer.
